No Metallica, Rammstein or AC/DC?

I think it's a little bit disappointing seeing there's little to no songs by Metallica, Rammstein and AC/DC.

 

I could possibly find a bunch more artists that aren't on spotity. But how come we don't have access to the music by these artists? I'm a premium user, and would like to get the most out of my money - because Spotify is indeed a very nice application.

 

I hope these artists can become a part of spotify music collection.

Not every album or song is available on Spotify. Some artists and music labels choose not to release to Spotify.

 

AC/DC and Metallica are some of those artists.

 

The only thing Spotify does is upload the music that is sent to them. You can find out why some songs/artists are not on Spotify over here.

 

Some music labels only release to certain countries while blocking the release from the rest.


It's all about who owns the rights to the music and where they want it released to.

Music would be better if labels didn't block their releases from certain countries, but sadly this is how the music business works.

If someone adds them in a playlist, you can play it if you have those songs on your computer. Buy the album, then you can play these songs in playlists on spotify. (This is why they do this, they think they would get more from album sales than they would from spotify) Although it isn't "free music", Metallica are renowned for disagreeing with the digital age (Napster...)

Re: No Metallica, Rammstein or AC/DC?

How can the community founder say it is a plus that a band which is liked by thousands of people is not available on spotify??? Sorry i dont get it.
I'm also spotify premium member and it hurts me big time that i cant find a single Rammstein song on Spotify (I'm german).
I know its the label stuff, but please for all you can do, try to convince Rammstein to get aboard on spotify.... Probably the most well known german band and its not there..

And lol "Thats because its beep" Yeah you are sooo right it would be way better if just the music YOU like would be on spotify, right? You make me sad, kiwf

I'm not working for Spotify.

 

My opinion is not opinion by Spotify.

 

The reason why I HATE METALLICA SO MUCH, this (metallica) is OVERPLAYED in Finnish local rock radio called Radio Rock. Every hour this **bleep** is unacceptable.

 

They, Radio Rock, even played this Metallica !"#¤ 24 hours nonstop when Metallica was at concert in Finland.

 

After Spotify Premium I'm not listening radio at all.

 

So thank you radio, I hate Metallica for years now.
