Neil Young is letting the world know it’s either him or Joe Rogan, at least on your Spotify listening queue. In a since-deleted letter posted on the website, Young addressed his management and his record label, asking them to remove his music from the music streaming service as long as they host the controversial podcaster.
“I am doing this because Spotify is spreading false information about vaccines – potentially causing the death of those who believe the misinformation is being spread by them,” Young wrote. “Please act immediately today and let me know the timing.”
Referencing episodes of Rogan criticizing vaccine science and harboring critical vaccine leaders, Young called on Spotify to make a choice. “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all of my music removed from their platform,” he added. “They may have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.”
Earlier in January, 270 doctors and scientists also called on Spotify to remove Rogan from the platform, saying he “has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims” about Covid-19 and vaccine science.
Noting that Rogan’s podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience” is one of the most listened to podcasts in the world “with approximately 11 million listeners per episode”, Young added that “Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread misinformation on its platform, although the company currently has no misinformation policy.”
It wouldn’t be the first time Young had asked for music to be removed from the music streaming platform, once for poor sound quality, he said. rolling stone back in 2019. At press time, Spotify was unsure if Young’s music would be removed or remain.
