I'll listen to a Neil Young Station in the car. Nice.

So he goes to the platform that also has the human trash known as Steve Bannon, Sean Hannity, and all the other wastes who cant get real radio because they are so disgusting

Thats some moral high ground there

Good, I was enjoying his Channel on Sirius

He didn't pull his catalog off Spotify. He gave them an ultimatum and they chose a goober like Rogan over him. The only thing Young took down was his demand to Spotify and they still removed his catalog.

What?? A hypocritical celebrity? I don't believe it.

Not at all surprising.  I find it hard to believe this wasn't in the works for a long time, and Neil decided to make a point in the process.

You don't stand for freedom of speech if you think it only applies to those that agree with you.

Does his average fan even know about Spotify?  I mean, I credit the guy for taking a stand, but it all seems pretty irrelevant.

It'd be weird if it was an "absolute freedom of speech" rally and not the term as understood by fully formed adults.

Guys like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, the Jerry Garcia, can you imagine them auditioning for The Voice or American Idol?

I didn't even know he was sick.

Someone doesn't understand how the 1st Amendment works.

Whatever Neil Young does or doesn't do is inconsequential to me. It made me feel good to do a cancel culture on Spotify because I hate them. The Joe Rogan thing was just the shiat cherry on the shiat sundae. I'd say someone should pull a Marcia on his Lonesome Rhodes act, but I doubt his fans would care.
 
2022-01-28 12:03:11 PM  
I once drove a VW bus with a dog, 2000 miles west, just me and my dog, with Harvest Moon on near perpetual loop.   It seemed a very fitting soundtrack for the event, if i recall.

I'll always have love for Neil.

Oh, I don't think that at all. I completely understand the first amendment. I'm not a Rogan fan, and fully agree that Spotify has the right to control their content. That doesn't make Young any less hypocritical. Censorship of opposing views, or demonization of those with opposing views, is seldom the answer.
 
2022-01-28 12:22:05 PM  
Neil:

You tried and you farked up.

The moral of the story: Don't try.

How, exactly, would one criticize the medical misinformation Rogan spreads on his show, without demonizing it? And how does that apply to Young's actions here?

Yesterday the Bridge on SirusXM had some guest DJ, and he kept talking about this situation. He wouldn't shut up about it, and played a bunch of Neil Young music. So this new doesn't surprised me. It sounded like this DJ was trying to become a DJ for the Neil Young station.

What?? A hypocritical celebrity? I don't believe it.


Focusing on the hypocrisy of a celebrity instead of the dangerous goonism of Joe Rogan is such a Joe Rogan move.

Nice false equivalence. Last I checked, the government hasn't canceled Rogan.

Nor should they. I disagree with his take on Covid and the vax but I would find it terrifying if the gov't could shut him down for that.

A blanket anti-censorship principle is a bad thing.

Imagine, if you will, a crowd of people gathered at a concert.  Some terrorists attack with guns and bombs.

Security forces try to usher people out of the building before they get shot.  They tell the people to go out the left exit.

Joe Rogan is the jerkwad telling people to go out the other door, where the terrorists are waiting with guns.

In that scenario, the best thing to do is to shut him up before he gets people killed unnecessarily.

Same with the real world.  While I can appreciate not wanting the government to have the power to crush dissenting opinions, someone certainly needs to do something about loudmouthed idiots who are getting people killed with their propaganda.

Yeah, you can't yell fire in a crowded theater, remember? Lying and promoting life-threatening bullshiat isn't covered by free speech, you smooth-brained knob.

Just another Sirius/XM station I don't need.  Plenty of bars around here that I could go to if I needed to hear someone sing that bad.

The important thing is that someone managed to monetize this entire incident.

God bless capitalism.
