Joni Mitchell Becomes the Latest Artist to Pull Music From Spotify Over Joe Rogan

Legendary Canadian singer-songwriters Neil Young and Joni Mitchell have been friends for decades. The two have even written songs about each other.  Mitchell wrote the Circle Game in response to Young’s Sugar Mountain in 1968. And in 1973, Young penned Sweet Joni.

All these years later, Mitchell is again supporting her friend. On Friday, the songstress joined Young, pulling her music off Spotify in protest of Joe Rogan.

Penning her note, I Stand With Neil Young, Mitchell wrote, “I’ve decided to remove all my music from Spotify. Irresponsible people are spreading lies that are costing people their lives. I stand in solidarity with Neil Young and the global scientific and medical communities on this issue.”

The negative press surrounding Rogan continues to mount. And it is starting to cost the streaming giant some money. According to Occupy Democrats, “Spotify stock plummets a staggering 12% in one week as users delete their accounts en masse to protest the platform siding with anti-vaxxer Joe Rogan against musician Neil Young — clearly the backlash is working.
