Rockin' in the Free World in Central Park Yesterday

I realize that there are probably people in suits on television this morning speaking about important matters of politics and football, but I'm still on a high from spending all day and night on my feet on the Great Lawn in Central Park in the greatest city in the world watching Neil Young, the Foo Fighters, Black Keys, Band of Horses, and K'naan, so I'm reliving yesterday's Global Citizen Festival with videos.
There are professional videos on the internets already, but I like the way that this amateur video from the crowd brings back the feeling of being there for the closing "Rockin' in the Free World" with Dave Grohl and Dan Auerbach strapping on guitars to join Crazy Horse, and all of the musicians on stage together singing the chorus (along with tens of thousands of others on the lawn):

We got a thousand points of light for the homeless man
We got a kindler, gentler, machine gun hand
We've got department stores and toilet paper

Got styrofoam garbage for the ozone layer

Got a man of the people says keep hope alive

Got fuel to burn, got roads to drive

Keep on rockin in the free world
