Backlash grows against Spotify over decision to support Joe Rogan over Neil Young

‘We regret Neil’s decision to remove his music from Spotify, but hope to welcome him back soon,’ said a Spotify spokesperson

Spotify is in the process of removing Neil Young’s music from its library.

The decision follows after the musician penned an open letter to his manager and label asking them to remove his music from Spotify should the service continue to host Joe Rogan’s podcast.

“They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” said the “Harvest Moon” singer.

The 76-year-old wrote that he does not appreciate Spotify’s affiliation with Rogan.

Young said Rogan’s podcast – The Joe Rogan Experience – is spreading “false information” regarding Covid-19 vaccines, adding that it is “potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them”.
