“They Can Have Rogan or Young:” Neil Young Tells Spotify to Pull His Music Over Host’s COVID Misinformation

Recently, many musicians have been in the news for their stances against COVID mitigation. Eric Clapton and Van Morrison teamed up for a song that compared COVID lockdowns to slavery. And anti-vax singer Meatloaf recently died after contracting the disease.

But there are also legendary artists fighting back again COVID misinformation. Neil Young is one of them. The rocker recently told Spotify they couldn’t play his music as long as the platform employs Joe Rogan.

Young wrote in an open letter to his management team, “I am doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them. Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the time schedule.”

The missive continued, “I want you to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform. They can have [Joe] Rogan or Young. Not both.”

Young closed his message:

Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, though the company presently has no misinformation policy.”
