Neil Young’s Ultimatum To Spotify Over Joe Rogan Backfires

Recording artist Neil Young gave an ultimatum to the audio streaming platform Spotify in regards to the Joe Rogan podcast. The “Rockin’ In The Free World” musician apparently does not like Joe Rogan’s presence on Spotify due to “spreading misinformation” about the virus. Since Spotify hosts music as well as podcasts and other audio, Neil Young thought his music catalog’s presence on the platform held some leverage. So he decided to deliver the ultimatum to Spotify – it’s either Joe Rogan or Neil Young. This was a clearly overplayed hand on the part of Neil Young because Spotify almost instantly dropped Young’s music and kept Joe Rogan.
