Deadslash, a user on discord, posted that if you type in "Hard School" or "Hard Skool" on Spotify, Shadow of Your Love pops up and GNR shows up under artists. It is true, very interesting. Here is a photo I just took with an unlogged in account so my gnr follow on spotify won't influence it https://media.discordapp.net/attachment … height=670


Yeah it's ready to go...just waiting for the date to launch it.

21

Could it be it's doing it on an algorithm because of people searching "Hardskool Guns N' Roses?"

That’d be my guess. Their algorithm wouldn’t be worth a cent if it didn’t do this, and they’d have a major design flaw if non-public data entered into a separate database  influenced their algorithm.

Doesn’t do that for me when I search either . Perhaps a regional thing ?

It's possible it's an algorithmic thing based on news stories but that doesn't wash for me for a couple reasons.

Firstly, it would be more or less an instant response. We've had minor rumblings of "Hard Skool" before but it wasn't until this week that bigger sites like Bl***ermouth and Loudw**e picked it up. So that'd be instantaneous turn around for search results being collated.

Second, while it's to a much less degree than "Hard Skool", we've not seen "Atlas Shrugged" generate anything on Spotify, despite being mentioned here and there in the press and among the more mainstream fanbase. I've seen it suggested that it's because GNR fans are naming playlists "Hard Skool". Again this doesn't wash. Are there GNR related playlists with the title "Atlas Shrugged" or just "Hard Skool"? If so, okay, I'll concede but also, why would Spotify weight user playlists so heavily and surely there can't be THAT MANY playlists with "Hard Skool" as the title. It seems to strain credulity...

A couple of final comments then we'll see what happens tomorrow...

As you add or subtract letters, different things will come up, i.e.: "Hard Sko" generates "Shadow Of Your Love" but not the GNR Artist page. I've seen people speculate this is due to the proximal but scrambled letter ordering of "Shadow" but that doesn't particularly wash with me because there are other, already released songs with "Shadow" in it that have more plays than "Shadow of Your Love" on Spotify, i.e. The Killers' "Shadowplay" and Audioslave's "Shadow of the Sun". Why wouldn't their page be associated instead?

And finally, which may or may not undercut my whole theory, the results will appear only if you're based in the US.

I'm inn the US at the moment but my Spotify is UK. I don't get everything you mentioned but "hard sc" shows GNR in the search results for me.
