March 2, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In what appears to be another act of Big Tech censorship, a popular anti-lockdown song by Ian Brown, one of the U.K.’s biggest rock stars, has been removed from Spotify, the online music-streaming platform.

Brown, who was the lead singer of rock band The Stone Roses and has since built a successful solo career, released “Little Seed Big Tree” in September 2020, prompting negative press from the mainstream media.

The track includes lyrics critical of lockdowns – “global orders riding over borders, get behind your doors for the New World Order”; face coverings – “put your muzzle on”; experimental COVID-19 vaccines – “a false vaccine, like a bad dream”; vaccine passports/identity cards – “we don’t need no stinking badges!”; as well as lines on 5G and the repeated lyric of “Masonic lockdown in your hometown.” Brown describes himself as an anarchist, and the song contains one line which is likely intended to be dismissive of belief in the existence of God and the afterlife.

The track concludes with two audio clips from Bill Gates, who is referred to throughout the song as “Dr. Evil.” In the first quote Gates is heard saying: “We’re taking things that are genetically modified organisms and we’re injecting them into little kids arms, we just shoot them right into the vein.” The song concludes with Gates saying, “but you don’t have a choice, people act like you have a choice.” That quote comes from an April 2020 interview in which Gates interrupted his own reflections on the wide-ranging impacts of the coronavirus crisis, saying “you don’t have a choice,” although it is unclear exactly what he meant by the comment.

I went to play “Little Seed Big Tree” on Spotify yesterday and it was gone. The track was gone from several playlists I had added it to and gone when I tried to search for it. The rest of Brown’s catalogue remains on Spotify, and he continues to promote the song on his social media platforms.

A link to the song on Brown’s official Spotify page shows it as “Unavailable.”


While it is possible that there is another explanation, it seems likely that this is another act of Big Tech censorship of those dissenting from the COVID-19 narrative.

LifeSiteNews has contacted Spotify to ask why the track has been removed. We have yet to receive a response.

Brown, who has almost 160,000 followers on Twitter, warned music festival organizers last week that he would refuse to play at future shows if vaccination was a required condition of entry for fans.

“I will NEVER sing to a crowd who must be vaccinated as a condition of attendance. NEVER EVER!” he posted.

Mainstream media sources are promoting offensive suggestions by some doctors that people who refuse a vaccine for COVID-19 should be "punished" by the government and by business - effectively coercing them into taking the vaccine.

  • One group of doctors writing in 'USA Today' suggested that the government impose special taxes (i.e., fines) on people who refuse the vaccination and that business simply refuse to serve them. [see story below]
  • Another doctor writing in an online publication called 'The Conversation' shamelessly suggested that people who refuse a vaccine should be given a psychoactive drug to induce compliance. [see story below]

But, these suggestions are plain political posturing, and have nothing to do with science or with the recent trends of the disease.

And, in case they haven't noticed, we live in a democracy not a medical dictatorship!

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks policy-makers and business people, at all levels, to pledge to respect the rights of those who, in good conscience, decide not to vaccinate themselves or their children.

People should not have to live in fear of governmental or corporate retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It would be intolerable and immoral for the government or business to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will to avoid a fine, or just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping.

Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.

So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished for refusing a vaccine.

Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.

Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.

We can no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question, especially now that, statistically speaking, the initial brunt of the COVID crisis has passed.

Neither can we accept the dictates of doctors who seem detached from reality and from science, and who only seem to be attached to the idea of promoting ideas which contribute to the agrandizement of power and control of political interests, and wealth of those who stand to make a lot of money from the sale of a COVID vaccine.

Please SIGN this urgent petition which asks government and business leaders to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and not seek to punish them for doing so.

Over 240,000 people in the U.K. have signed a petition in opposition to COVID-19 vaccine passports.

Since the petition has been made via the official parliamentary channel, the government must respond to the petition, and consider it for a debate in the House of Commons once the signatures amount to more than 100,000.

With the signatures amounting to more than double that figure, Parliament should hear the motion and debate on it shortly.
