Steve Albini has called on Joe Rogan to follow the example set by Insane Clown Posse, as Rogan continues to face more heat over the content of his podcast on Spotify.
Podcaster, Joe Rogan had already come under fire after Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and more took their music catalogues off Spotify in protest of vaccine misinformation promoted by guests on Joe’s show.
Joe, however, had recently rendered an apology after his multiple use of the N-word came out on tape, calling it “the most regretful and shameful thing I’ve had to talk about publicly” before arguing that the clips had been “taken out of context of 12 years of conversations on my podcast”.
Albini, On Monday, February 7th, shared an interview with Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J from 2020 in which the musician took cognizance of the problematic lyrics in the band’s music.
In reaction to screenshots of the conversation posted on Twitter, Albini had this to say: “This is absolutely model owning your shit behaviour, and if a goddamn fucking Juggalo can manage it, a nine-figure podcaster can step the fuck up without whining.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Albini would be criticising Rogan. Speaking in an interview last March, he said, “Rogan, Barstool, all the anti-woke comics, just f**k them all in the eye.”
