If that ain't country by David Allen Coe

Casual Listener

Hello, I am a premium user and I recently relised that the song If That Ain't Country by David Allen Coe was removed from my playlist and when I searched for the song to add it again, I could not find it. I spend my hard earned money for this subscription so I don't understand why songs that I previously had are being taken away.

Unfortunatly, it may have been removed due to negotiations between Spotify and the artist's record label. The record label may have revoked the song from Spotify for various reasons. There is a chance that it may be available again soon!

They removed it from my playlist too and I am pissed.  I pay for this service for music, not so that their PC viewpoints can be forced on me (and I am paying for them to do this **bleep**). Maybe time to find a different company.

It's gone from mine too. I imagine it's because the "n" word is in the chorus.  Nevermind that it isn't used targeting black people, it's actually a backhand compliment from a 1974 songwriter's perspective of a white trash Texas family.  It also says "my older sister is a first rate wh (rhymes with more), Pa won't let her come home no more" and "you can kiss my "a word for backside" all of which should earn it an explicit label but not removal.   

 

I'll contact David Allen Coe's label tomorrow.

I feel the same way. I really liked Spotify up until I started to notice some of my music slowly start to disappear. It’s 100% about being pc, and if they say it’s about something else it’s a lie. Time to start looking elsewhere and it’s not just me I have a lot of friends that I turned on to Spotify that feel the same way. Too bad

Spotify im sorry, canceling my subscription. You liberal **bleep** wipes there is such a thing as freedom of speech. If you remove this song then you would also need to remove every other song that includes the N word.

Hello all,

 

Spotify is only able to stream music that is licensed properly. There may be some negotiations with the rights to that song that is preventing it from being available. That does not mean it won't be available in the future. 

 

I am going to guess it was not removed because of the lyrics. As you said, many songs contain similar language and are still available. I hope this clears up any concerns. Let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with.

This is complete BS. If they’re going to remove this song they’d better start removing the litany of hip hop songs that are Similar.
