The Australian Conservatives’ Twitter account decried the deletion of the list as censorship, posting a copy of an automated email from Spotify which said the playlist had been removed after complaints it violated the site’s guidelines and contained inappropriate and offensive content, reports.

Senator Bernardi, a vocal supporter of the right of businesses to refuse service to anyone “for whatever reason” during the same-sex marriage debate, retweeted the comment, adding “Welcome to the Brave New World”.

Darren Hayes, lead singer with Savage Garden, has asked the senator several times via Twitter to remove his song, To The Moon And Back, from the list.

Meanwhile, Australian hip hop group Hilltop Hoods had a short, sharp message for Senator Bernardi in response to their inclusion on his list.
