With protest against the Vietnam War gearing up in , the group and Crosby in particular made no secret of their political leanings.
As a group, they recorded one hit song in response to political events although they recorded other political songs as solo artists and in various combinations.
The song, "Ohio", was written in response to the deaths of four students at Kent State University. The students were shot by Ohio National Guardsmen during an anti-war protest on the campus in May The release of " Ohio " marked the boldest musical statement made to that date regarding the Vietnam War , calling out Richard Nixon by name and voicing the counterculture's rage and despair at the events.
Between "Ohio", their appearance in both the festival and movie of Woodstock , and the runaway success of their two albums, the group found themselves in the position of enjoying a level of adulation far greater than experienced with their previous bands, as evidenced by the 27 Platinum certifications they received across seven albums. The band has been continuously associated with political causes throughout its existence, the latest example being the song "Almost Gone The Ballad of Bradley Manning " which focuses on the length and conditions of Chelsea Manning 's pre-trial confinement.
Despite their estrangement, Crosby,   Nash,  and Young   were all vocal in their support for Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The collective abilities allowed CSNY to straddle all the genres of popular music eminent at the time, from country rock to confessional ballads, from acoustic guitars and voice to electric guitar, and three-part harmony.
With The Beatles ' break-up made public by April , and with Bob Dylan in reclusive low-key activity since mid, CSNY found itself as the adopted standard bearers for the Woodstock Nation , serving an importance in society as counterculture figureheads equaled at the time in rock and roll only by The Rolling Stones or The Who. Their second gig was a one-hour show at the Woodstock Festival in the early morning of August 18, The tour ended with three European concerts in January They were accompanied on the tour by Greg Reeves on bass, and Dallas Taylor on drums.
Before the start of their second tour, Greg Reeves was replaced on bass by Calvin Samuels. The tour is notorious for the tensions within the band, and Dallas Taylor was fired, to be replaced by John Barbata on drums, and Stephen Stills was temporarily sacked by the rest of the group.
The tour started in Denver Coliseum on 12 May , and finished after 22 dates at the Met Center in Bloomington, Minnesota on 9 July , after which the group split up. The double live album 4 Way Street , released April , was recorded at several dates on this tour.
