Crosby, Stills & Nash returned to Spotify five months after pulling their music from the streaming service over Joe Rogan's massively popular podcast. Billboard reports that Crosby, Stills & Nash will donate proceeds to COVID-19 charities for at least a month after their music returns to Spotify on Saturday.As a result of this, the group denounced Rogan's podcast in February, during the height of the media-instigated moral panic that was sparked by Rogan's and certain guests' comments regarding COVID-19.

The exodus from Spotify was led by Neil Young, followed by a handful of other musicians, including Joni Mitchell, seeking to pressure Spotify executives to deplatform Rogan. “Crosby, Stills & Nash support Neil and agrees with him that Joe Rogan's Joe Rogan podcast is broadcasting dangerous disinformation,” the band wrote on Twitter in February.It has deadly consequences when disinformation is knowingly spread during this global pandemic, they said. As long as no real action is taken to demonstrate that a concern for humanity must be balanced with commerce, we do not want our music - or the music we made together - to be available anywhere.

"After old clips of Rogan using the n-word conveniently resurfaced around the same time, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek pledged $100 million to diversity efforts. The n-word was used by Rogan in context and not derogatorily.
