Spotify not working has caused a social media meltdown for music lovers unable to stream.
Twitter has become flooded with memes of fury and despair as users struggle to listen to their favourite playlists, podcasts and albums.
The popular app going down has become a top trending topic online with people tweeting their rage at not being able to plug in and check if others are suffering the same silence.
Conspiracy theories being spread about the platform being hacked by Russians have left people wondering what Vladimir Putin would want with people's playlists.
Commenting on a Women's Day post shared three hours earlier, Twitter users have hit out at Spotify with a range of fierce and funny complaints.
One person blasted: "Y’all were supposed to shut Russia’s service off not ours."
"How dare you crash on international women’s day," another said.
Spotify Status which provides updates about the platform's current service said that they were looking into the problem at 6:22pm.
The official account which is separate to Spotify's main profile, tweeted: "Something’s not quite right, and we’re looking into it. Thanks for your reports!"

Fuelling fears that Spotify has been targeted by hackers, one person commented on the tweet by Spotify Status saying: "Imagine. Spotfiy going down, and as millions of people try relogging in and putting their account passwords in.. they're actually being stolen by the Russians."
But another follower hit back asking: "What are the Russians gonna do with people’s playlists?!?"
A third joked: "Well they are gonna find peoples favourite songs and blast it on the battle field so we let our guard down and dance."
"Music and podcasts are the only thing that gets me through my day till I get home so they’ll definitely be hitting me where it hurts," someone else said.
