Jan 25 - Neil Young wants his music scrubbed from Spotify because of Joe Rogan
 

 
Neil Young, an outspoken advocate for Covid-19 safety and prevention, doesn't want his music to share a home with vaccine misinformation.
In a now-deleted post on his website, Young asked his managers and record label to remove his music from Spotify because he said the music and podcast platform is "spreading fake information about vaccines -- potentially causing death to those who believe this disinformation spread by them." (Rolling Stone originally reported the text of the deleted post.)

"I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform," the 76-year-old said in Monday's post, according to Rolling Stone. "They can have Rogan or Young. Not both."
"Rogan" refers to Joe Rogan, the exceedingly controversial podcast host who has made frequent false and inaccurate claims surrounding vaccines and Covid-19. Earlier this month, a group of more than 250 scientists, doctors and nurses penned an open letter to Spotify condemning the streamer for platforming Rogan and calling on Spotify to warn its listeners about misinformation.

"The Joe Rogan Experience" was Spotify's most popular podcast globally in 2021, according to Variety. It became a Spotify exclusive in 2020, when Rogan signed a multi-year exclusive licensing deal with the streaming service, thought to be worth more than $100 million, the Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

CNN has reached out to Young's manager, his publicist at Warner Records and Spotify for comment.

Frank Gironda, Young's manager, did confirm to the Daily Beast that the two had discussed Young's concerns and were "trying to figure this out right now." He said, too, that Young was "very upset about this disinformation."

“They can have Rogan or Young. Not both.”

Hmm the guy who brings in millions of dollars of ad revenue or a guy some old heads who don’t even know how music streaming works may listen to every once in awhile. Tough choice.

If Spotify cancels Rogan's show he will take his 12 million listeners and go elsewhere and spotify knows this. Joe Rogan has the most powerful voice and platform than the entire corporate media combined.

Half his catalogue was bought for around $150 million.


At least over $1 million per year


Edit : here’s a little write up.

Over on Spotify, Neil Young has over 5 million monthly listeners and over 1.6 million followers (i.e. people who have clicked a button to make sure they stay up-to-date with all Young-related activity on the service). How many of these fans might be willing to pay a couple of bucks more on their monthly Spotify bill to unlock access to Young’s archive — via the service they have already chosen for music consumption?
Granted, not the same percentage of those who actively visit NeilYoungArchives.com. But if just 1% of Young’s 5 million monthly Spotify listeners could be upsold to pay $2 extra each month, it would generate another $1.2 million annually — money that the industry is currently (foolishly?) leaving on the table.

Anti vaxxers dont know who Neil Young is or what he stands for. He has the right to control his properties to his discretion. I think Joe Rogan is an intellectual for morons, but most of America is stupid so it fits.

Dummy you can’t even figure out what music of his he actually owns and is in control of.


Music coulda just been removed by him like he did with that post and delete from his website.

He’s old enough to remember how vaccines stopped polio. Like them or not, they have done a lot good throughout history.

Rogan is a fu*king idiot. That said, he’s allowed to say his sh*t. Other music talks about murder, r*pe and drugs. He doesn’t have a problem with that on the platform?

I do think him spreading misinformation is wrong though.

I entered the thread thinking he was saying Rogans show was using his music in some way....but no this guy thinks they should take his music off for something totally unrelated to him?

Naaaaah Neil you look stupid

He probably did this thinking he was starting a movement, and other artist would follow.

Instead he just looks like this:


Edit:

Its especially funny since when his own streaming platform he tried to launch like 6 or 7 years ago failed, he asked Donald Trump for some money to get it back on track. fu*k Donald Trump...but the bar he would drop on twitter about this one would be hilarious
