Neil Young had previously told Spotify to delete his music from the streaming service due to their partnership with the long-tenured UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Young has backtracked since then, deleting his letter, and seemingly giving up his battle over Rogan. He was trolled for that move. Previously, Trevor Noah also reflected on the incident.

It turns out Eve 6 jokingly suggested they will try to join Neil Young in his Spotify boycott over Joe Rogan. The band took to the Twitter account and send out few Tweets poking fun at Young. The Tweet noted: if spotify doesn’t take neil young seriously i bet they’ll heed the demands of eve6″

While another Tweet read: “the last time neil young lost this much money was when a quarter fell through a hole in the pocket of his 501’s”

Addressing his management team at LookoutManagement and Warner Bros, Young had written: “Please immediately inform Spotify that I am actively canceling all my music availability on Spotify as soon as possible.” I am doing this because Spotify is spreading false information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them,” he wrote.

“Please act on this immediately today and keep me informed of the schedule,” the letter added. “I want you to let Spotify know immediately today that I want all of my music off their platform.” “They can have Rogan or Young. Not both,” he said.

Neil Young has now deleted his letter on his website after giving Spotify an ultimatum to remove Joe Rogan, or remove his music. Previously, the long-tenured UFC commentator, Rogan had discouraged young people from getting vaccinated. Rogan was also previously involved in a controversy as he had promoted the concept of taking deworming medication Ivermectin to treat the virus, without providing any medical evidence supporting it.

‘Neil Young Radio’ launches

Young is set to get his own channel on SiriusXM, a day after Spotify said it was removing the songwriter’s music after he protested vaccine misinformation on the streaming service. The channel had dubbed “Neil Young Radio,” will run for a week starting on Thursday, SiriusXM announced. The channel will feature “music and exclusive stories” from the musician and will also be available for a month on the SXM app. The channel, SiriusXM teased, “will provide fans access to the entire musical world” of Young, including “rarities and exclusives,” along with stories from him about his songs.
