Crosby, Stills, & Nash bashed when their tunes resurface on Spotify 5 mos after cancelling themselves

Following leftist rocker Neil Young out the door in protest over Joe Rogan’s massively popular podcast, Crosby, Stills, & Nash has returned to Spotify a mere five months later in a fully “go woke, go broke” statement on political correctness.

Money evidently trumps virtue-signaling even for famous rock bands and liberal principles shift with the political sands. Rogan’s podcast never missed a beat or a buck while the group pitched a fit.

The group’s music portfolio resurfaced on the streaming outlet Saturday with the band donating proceeds to COVID charities for at least a month in a seeming mea culpa, according to Billboard. The music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the title of the band when Neil Young joined them, is also available on Spotify, though Young’s solo work is still absent from the platform.

The whole kerfuffle started over Rogan speaking about COVID on his podcasts questioning mandates and enforced protocols. The left didn’t like his opinion or his guests who spoke on the subject. Young was apoplectic over vaccine “disinformation.”

Young pulled his music and was followed by a number of other lefty musicians including Joni Mitchell. The campaign to pressure Spotify into dropping Rogan failed spectacularly. Although CEO Daniel Ek did pledge $100 million to diversity efforts after old clips of Rogan using the n-word just happened to resurface. Rogan’s use of the n-word was reportedly taken out of context and was not meant to be derogatory.

“We support Neil and we agree with him that there is dangerous disinformation being aired on Spotify’s Joe Rogan podcast,” David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash declared in a joint statement that was posted to their official Twitter account back in February.

“While we always alternate points of view, knowingly spreading disinformation during this global pandemic has deadly consequences,” the group said at the time. “Until real action is taken to show that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we don’t want our music — or the music we made together — to be on the same platform.”

Responding to a fan on Twitter, Crosby remarked that the band’s music is back on Spotify because “I don’t own it now and the people who do are in business to make money,” neatly shifting the blame to the Iconic Artist’s Group who bought the band’s back catalog in March 2021.

“So Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young back on Spotify… LOL… just all those people who never left America when Bush and Trump won…..” Twitter user @SuchHate tweeted.

@THXCP30 snarked, “5 months was the longest they could manage.”

The mockery spilled over to Instagram via comments on the band’s February post.

“Nice conviction you pieces of s**t,” wrote @realtimelaundry.

@bigguytubs commented, “Are these the sellouts that crawled back to Spotify? I just wanted to slide through and say ‘Haaahaaa!’ Guess you don’t represent the common man.”
