Did anyone notice or know why ADKOT was taken off Spotify?

I had songs from the album on a VH playlist and they disappeared…

It was done to force people to buy physical copies.
When ADKOT came out, expectations at Interscope were very high, and they had too many copies of the CD printed.
So, a decade later, the bean counters told the higher-ups to move them out of the warehouse(s). Instead of running them through a shredder (which would cost $$), they pulled the digital copies offline, and hope to sell off the extras that way.

Seriously though, there are several theories, but they are all speculation. Us fans have no idea (that I know of).

Amazing that they would give two shits about physical copies of a Van Halen CD. Thankfully I don’t use Spotify. I GOT TWO WORDS FOR YA!!!! LOL

Most users of Spotify probably don’t even own CDs. 8-O


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?
