Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

Opening Act
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.

I would like to see a ban artist feature where I can ban an artist instead of just by song.

Does anyone else notice that Pandora is actively promoting artists like R Kelly and Chris Brown, despite their claims not to? Both of these artists are played on my stations even though I've thumbs downed or nexted them. It seems Pandora is making a false claim here.. and I would have reached out directly for help but that's not even an option? What is going on Pandora?

A specific: I have several stations in which Louis Armstrong pops up. Can't stand his voice. I have this issue with a couple of other artists on other stations. Is there some way, other than "thumbs down" which does not remove from the station, to completely eliminate a specific artist from all rotation in that station? Thanks!

I've been wanting this for years. There are some artists (Eminem and Childish Gambino) where if you like ONE song it feels like the station starts playing their entire discography. I only like that one song, not the artist's entire body of work.

And some artists I cannot stand to hear and don't want to support them ethically or financially.

Please add a artist ban list that would apply to all stations on an account.  It would be nice if I never have to hear Metallica, Green Day, Offspring, Pink Floyd, Wheezer, Breaking Benjamin or any other fill-in-the-blank, worn out, tired FM radio station rock ever again on Pandora.  I recommend not having 2 thumbs down of the same artist on a given station banning that artist.  There are many good artists with more than 2 bad songs.  A ban list would make more sense.

It would be nice to be able to turn on deep cuts and discovery for shuffle so that one doesn't have to listen to worn out, tired, FM radio station music when shuffling stations. While the thumbs down feature is great, it's almost impossible to eliminate all the tired, worn out, FM radio station music with thumbs down alone.
