Where to find the music you no longer hear on Spotify

Several performers have pulled their songs from the popular streaming service Spotify to protest the company’s decision to continue hosting the popular podcast ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’, which has come under fire for spreading false information about Covid-19.

Rogan’s controversial statements include saying ‘healthy young people don’t need a Covid vaccine’, arguing that vaccines are more dangerous than the virus itself, and promoting the drug Ivermectin as an effective treatment for the disease despite a complete lack of documented evidence. He also argued that the lockdowns made things worse and argued that it was more important to just take care of your immune system while smoking a cigar on camera.

“That’s what men do,” the host said. “We don’t care about, uh, things. Whatever. Anything that gives the impression that you are not taking risks.


Sure, Joe, but maybe you should think about it.

Neil Young

The first artist to release their catalog was singer-songwriter and “godfather of punk” Neil Young, 76, who said he and his label were united in fighting the spread of misinformation.

Young’s most famous album is undoubtedly “After the Gold Rush”, which includes the singles “Southern Man”, “Don’t Let it Bring You Down” and the famous title track. You can buy it in MP3 or, if you’re cool, get the 50th anniversary vinyl version.

Neil Young’s music is also available on Apple Music and Amazon Unlimited.

Joni Mitchell

The next artist to follow suit was singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, who is on the same label as Young, and has a similar history writing protest songs, including the famous “Little Yellow Taxi.” His most famous album is probably “Blue”, or at least it should be because it’s the best album of all time. It contains hits like “All I Want”, “A Case of You” and “Carey”, which is the best song from the best album of all time, objectively speaking.

You can listen to it on MP3 of course but if you’re cool you can also get the special edition vinyl which is just…. Wait, $760? Whatever, get it on MP3.

Or just listen to My Chemical Romance – they have a similar vibe.

Nils Lofgren

The next artist to go was Nils Lofgren, who is best known as the guitarist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. Please don’t pretend you already know this.

I have no idea which Nils Lofgren’s most famous album is, but this one has a pretty cool cover.

Sorry to make fun of this guy, I’m sure he’s good, but that’s exactly what men do, you know? We laugh at anything that appears to be risk-free.

Graham Nash

Young’s former bandmate in the eponymous band Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is the most recent musician to join the protest, calling on his label to remove his music. He issued probably the most blunt statement to date on Spotify, saying that “the opinions published by Rogan are so dishonest and unsupported by solid facts that Spotify is becoming a catalyst in a way that is costing people lives”.
