But I expect that they got a very very lucrative deal if they are letting Spotify stream their tracks because Spotify's usual payouts could not possibly be alluring to Led Zeppelin. Quite the contrary, I would expect. Same with Pink Floyd.

      The adverts made me want to stab people in the face. Which is why I got premium.

      If you're on Android you can use their web player with a browser that supports flash (firefox/boat)
