So spotify and Neil Young had a falling out because spotify wants to keep Joe Rogan. Now, I don’t understand Joe Rogan, but that’s irrelevant. The point is, we in the underground shouldn’t join this fight. This is wealthy people fighting over deplatforming a wealthy person. Punk and ska don’t have the legacy and machine of Neil and other 60’s protest rock. We need our exposure to share with one another and let everyone know they’re not alone. The fight isn’t taking away the trash voices. The answer is in numbers. We listen to spotify, but we obsessively play our stuff. You can even cheat the algorithm by keeping it playing on silent when you can’t listen. We play our music, our podcasts, news we believe in that shares anti corporate values. We need to build the world we want in spite of the hellscape that surrounds us. We support the fuck out of each other to extreme levels.
