Following their performance at Zucotti Park in Manhattan this Wednesday and their appearance on Keith Olbermann's Countdown hours later, musicians David Crosby and Graham Nash made an appearance on Democracy Now and treated the audience there to another a cappella performance of Crosby's new song, "What Are Their Names" in studio.

From Democracy Now -- Legendary Folk Duo Crosby & Nash on Soundtracking Movements from the 1960s to Occupy Wall Street:

Just days after performing at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Lower Manhattan, the legendary musicians David Crosby and Graham Nash join us live in our studio. For the duo, Occupy Wall Street is the latest in a number of causes they have supported in their historic careers stretching back nearly five decades. They are best known as founding members of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, a supergroup that performed at Woodstock and sold millions of records. Both are two-time inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Throughout their careers, politics has played a central role in their music. About the Occupy Wall Street movement, Crosby says, "There’s an awful lot of people who feel that they are not represented in Congress, that Congress has been bought by the large corporations, and that they are powerless, and that they are getting the short end of the stick."
