Joe Rogan’s Green Room Playlist on Spotify
There’s no doubt that Joe Rogan is a controversial figure. I guess that is bound to happen when you have an average of 11 million listens to every single episode of a podcast that you do. I never got nearly as many listeners when I still did a podcast, but even with my small listenership, it did lead to some crazy controversies. Although I don’t listen to the Joe Rogan Experience as much as I used to, I still listen to the episodes with less serious guests. One thing that I can’t deny is that the JRE has introduced me to some music that I love, like Sturgill Simpson, Run the Jewels, Colter Wall and many more. Joe Rogan is a big music fan, and he’s made his own “Green Room” playlist on Spotify.
Whether you love or hate Joe Rogan, there is no denying that there are some awesome songs on this Green Room playlist.
What is the Green Room playlist?
Exactly as the name suggests, it’s a playlist of songs that get played in Joe’s green room when he does comedy shows. Before you get on stage it helps if you can get excited, and what better to get you excited than a selection of good music? According to a recent interview, Joe stated that he adopted playing music in the green room because Dave Chapelle does it. Now that Joe opened his comedy club he had a music system installed in the green room and whenever Joe is introduced to a new song that he loves, it gets added to the Greem Room Playlist. Check out the Green Room Playlist below.
At every braai, the music is always a point of contention. My taste in music tends to be a bit heavier than most of my friends can handle. And I’ll be damned if I’m going to let people play shitty Afrikaans pop music. This playlist covers so many bases that it might be the solution. Best of all, Die Antwoord is as close as it’s going to get to Afrikaans music.
I recently had an interaction with a woman who claimed that it was a giant red flag if a man listened to the Joe Rogan Experience. As laughable as such a statement might be, it got even crazier when she proclaimed that the world would be a better place if Joe Rogan didn’t exist. At the next braai where this crazy broad is, I’m going to make sure to tell her who compiled the playlist she is dancing to. I’d also like to add that any person who claims what you find entertaining is a red flag is probably a sad, sour individual who is best avoided.
The bad news for the haters is that the Joe Rogan Experience podcast deal with Spotify has been renewed, with Rogan signing another $250 million contract. The only difference is that the podcast will no longer be exclusive to Spotify, but will now be available on YouTube as well as other major podcast platforms.
