Anthrax’s Scott Ian served as a guest on the latest episode of Jamey Jasta’s podcast and spoke on a variety of things, including his thoughts on streaming. “I came from the era where you could actually have a platinum album. How many records have been platinum in America last year? [Jasta proceeds to mention Taylor Swift] That’s a fucking joke, so take your streaming and shove it up your ass is how I truly feel about it,” (via The PRP).

“But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna be a caveman and say, ‘We’re not streaming,’” he added. “I want our music to get out there. I want as many people to get exposed to it as possible.”

“I don’t have Spotify, I don’t stream, I don’t do any of that. So I am ignorant to that… Like all the old Island [Records] catalog; is Among The Living on Spotify? I have no idea. If it is I’m sure we’re not making any money off it.

Even if we had the best deal in the world we still wouldn’t be seeing any money from Spotify. So that’s why when I hear musicians use Spotify I’m like really? You’re supporting a company that’s ripping you off. ‘Yeah but it’s so easy to just have your music.’ I’m like ‘It’s really easy to have my music without Spotify.’ I just never got that. You know this company is fucking you, yet you’re still okay with using it, that’s weird to me.

I get it; it’s how a lot of the people on the planet get their music now. And I’m not against that, I wouldn’t say don’t put our records on there because I understand it now. It’s like yeah, great, you’re listening, that’s how you’re getting out our music and then maybe you’re gonna go buy a ticket next time we come through.

I came from the era where you could actually have a platinum album. How many records have been platinum in America last year? [Jasta proceeds to mention Taylor Swift] That’s a fucking joke, so take your streaming and shove it up your ass is how I truly feel about it.

But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna be a caveman and say, ‘We’re not streaming.’ I want our music to get out there. I want as many people to get exposed to it as possible.”
