    after he witnessed an act of police brutality at an anti-war rally in Berkeley.[SUP][41][/SUP] Gaye later played the finished song to Berry Gordy, who refused its release due to his thoughts of the song being "too political" for radio at the time.[SUP][42][/SUP] Gaye responded by going on strike from the studio until Motown released the song.[SUP][42][/SUP] It was eventually released in January 1971 and quickly shot to number-one...fucken lemmys:rolleye:
