Wow, there is nothing more embarrassing than watching Boomers flex on the number one podcaster in the world.

Here is what happened: On Friday, Spotify took down Neil Young's music at the request of the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. The move came after Spotify decided to continue supporting podcast host Joe Rogan on its audio streaming platform.

Young took significant offense to the way Spotify ultimately responded to his letter, which read, "Spotify is spreading fake information about vaccines – potentially causing death to those who believe the disinformation being spread by them."

Young's letter referenced a guest on Rogan's podcast who dared to discuss alternative treatment for COVID-19.

Rogan had since thanked Spotify on his Instagram account. "It's a strange responsibility to have this many viewers and listeners," Rogan said. "I am going to do my best in the future to balance things out."

Other Boomer musicians have joined Young in his crusade against Spotify. Joni Mitchell said on Friday that she stands with fellow Canadian-born artist Neil Young in wanting her music removed from streaming service Spotify.

Saturday, Nils Lofgren announced, "we've now gotten the last 27 years of my music off Spotify." He went on to write, "We are reaching out to the labels that own my earlier music to have it removed as well."

BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer and Sydney Watson discussed this story on their podcast, "You Are Here." Elijah perfectly stated what all millennials are thinking: I didn't know Neil Young was on Spotify, and currently, Joe Rogan is Spotify.
