Thumbs up Spotify To Pull Neil Young Music After Ultimatum Letter Demanding Rogan Be Removed

I love this - Neil Young, who now I assume is an anti-truth leftist, demanded that Spotify must either drop Joe Rogan or lose access to Young's music. In other words, Young wanted to cancel Rogan and got himself canceled instead. I don't use Spotify, but I love how they handled this.

Quote:
Spotify is reportedly in the process of removing music from folk-rock star Neil Young after the 76-year-old gave the audio platform an ultimatum: remove the incredibly popular “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, or lose Young’s music.

It apparently didn’t take too long for Spotify to choose, a Wall Street Journal report outlined Wednesday.

“Spotify Technology SA is in the process of removing Neil Young’s music, according to people familiar with the matter, as the folk-rock star isn’t wavering in his objections to Joe Rogan’s podcast,” the report said.

As highlighted by The Daily Wire on Tuesday, Young issued a now-deleted message to his management team and record label telling them to “refuse the music streaming service access to his catalog of albums until they cut ties with podcast host Joe Rogan.”

“Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule,” Young wrote.

“I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform,” he said. “They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.” https://www.dailywire.com/news/just-...BJe2f_hzDG9o3k

I read this and had a good laugh...

...ESPECIALLY when it comes from the "music for the people (but only certain ones)" crowd...

I really like Neil Young with Crazy Horse. However as with many of the artists whose music I enjoy, their politics are usually in complete contrast with mine. While I don't know what Spotify is and therefore don't use it, this does not affect me. But I do find it encouraging that this company gave him his wish.

I can imagine Mr. Young sitting there thinking "that didn't go as planned."

Good for Neil. Rogan is a menace to society and it's good to see someone drawing attention to that fact.

Correct, because nothing bad has ever happened when dissenting voices were silenced.

While I have never listened to a complete podcast of his, I have heard snippets of one in which he was discussing Covid with some other doctor, don't remember who. If you are referring to this podcast, please direct me to any things that he said that were flat out lies.

I don't listen either, but, for example, I read recent excepts where he claimed that the risk of myocarditis from COVID vaccines was greater than the risk from COVID. When his guest told him that he was wrong and they even pulled up data online proving that Rogan was wrong, Rogan refused to accept the data.
