Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

Status: Open Ideas

New Feature Idea: Create Rules about what bands you never want to hear.  If I select a Genre but there are certain bands I never want to hear, there should be a way to create a rule. i.e. I select the 70's Rock Genre but I never want to hear any music from Sting, Rush, Styx, Journey, Kiss, etc.  then allow me to create a rule eliminating them fron the selection algorithm.

Hey, @davidjharris123. 👋

We do have an existing feature request for muting / blocking certain artists here.

If you have more than one idea to improve the service, feel free create different feature requests so that others can vote on your idea as well.

Thanks so much for posting your suggestions! 🎶

I enjoy listening to a certain genre of music but no matter what I choose as a seed, an artist I don't like keeps turning up no matter how many times I thumbs down them. I have had to thumbs down artists I've never liked over 12 times in a row before and those artist keep showing up further along. I wish we could have an option to block an artist on a station so it won't play on that particular station.

Hi @Buck_Williams thanks for posting to community! I've moved your message to this thread because it sounds like your idea is very similar. We appreciate the feedback!

I'm also happy to take a look at any station to see if there might be anything erroneous going on. Feel free to hit up and let me know. 

Thanks again for being part of community! 👍

So I haven't listened to Pandora in YEARS. 2015 is my last memory. I was THEN able to block artists... WHY DID THEY STOP THIS FEATURE???

I know for a fact, b/c I blocked 3 artists, and it worked. I really hope this new format does not unblock those artists.... or I am leaving again!

100% would LOVE this feature! There are just some artists I just don't like. I've tried to, but don't, lol. I like the genre though, so I keep listening and always having to skip them whenever they show up.

Things are sounding much better recently.  I've discovered some cool bands on Pandora lately.

I agree with everything on here about wanting to block certain artists because I don't like them, and needing to block them so that I am not financially supporting them because I do not believe the same thing as them.  Please get this feature added to Pandora.

Yes Please!

 

I'm so sick of Hamilton popping up all the time.  If I liked rap I'd listen to rap stations.
