Neil Young reportedly tells Spotify to remove his music over Joe Rogan vaccine misinformation

Neil Young has reportedly demanded that his music be removed from Spotify over vaccine misinformation shared on Joe Rogan’s popular podcast through the streaming service.

“They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” Young, 76, said in an open letter to his manager and record label that was posted to his Neil Young Archives website on Monday, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

Rogan, known for his contrarian and often baseless views on medicine, has faced widespread backlash for questioning vaccine safety during the pandemic.

NBC News has not seen the original post and it is unclear why it was removed from Young’s website. A link to the original post labeled “A-Message-To-Spotify,” currently leads to a blank page. A representative for Young did not immediately respond to an overnight request for comment.

In the letter, the Canadian American singer said he wanted his manager and record label “to let Spotify know immediately TODAY that I want all my music off their platform.”

He said he was “doing this because Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines — potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” Rolling Stone reported.
