    Neil Young and Starbucks are officially over.

    The classic rocker announced the end of his latte-sipping days after the coffee giant joined up with Monsanto in fighting food labeling regulations, according to reports.

    Monsanto is leading the fight against labels for food products that contain genetically-modified organisms, or GMOs, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    And Starbucks is lending a helping hand in Monsanto's fight, which could mean it's all Peet's from here on out for Neil Young.

    On his website, Young expressed his disappointment in Starbucks "working with the biggest villain of them all, Monsanto."

    Vermont earlier this year passed a law that says all food with GMOs need labels by July 1, 2016.
