Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

Blocking/Muting Certain Artists / Song Selection Rules

bjoyce2
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.

Why pandora is not delivering this feature is baffling.  Allow us to block artists at the least.

With how long this topic has been going on common it is getting, I think Pandora should look into it. It shouldn't be that difficult.

Maybe pandora gets a kickback from performers if they can't be blocked

Just saw where Spotify is doing this, might have to give them try

my requested feature is the following:

add a second down thumb button right next to the down thumb that's already there

this second down thumb should be red

it's function is to blacklist that song or artist across all stations

i.e. if I press the new red down thumb button, the song or artist will NEVER play again on any station EVER

this is an iteration of other users' requests and it seems to be a popular one.

**ahem** get on it Pandora!

Adding an Artist to a list blocking them from a station just adding them as a seed for the station.

I agree! I just went and looked..... I have thumbed down Anthem Lights songs 17 times on my acapella station and I still hear their whiny voiced, mashed up song garbage every session. Why does Pandora like them so much and why does the app not learn?

Stop shoving garbage down my throat I don't want, I have the tennent sound track on my station list and I can't **ahem** remove it

It does no good to request a blocking feature, since it is never implemented
