Am I the only one who thinks we should have a way to exclude live performances from our listening experience? Make this happen.

I added my vote to the Features List to add the ability to filter out live versions.  Hopefully Pandora adds this feature, even though I suspect royalty fees are less for live versions.

Please add a way to exclude live performances. Thanks

I would love this option for stations. I have a "quiet" station that I like to listen to at work, and having people screaming or the signer belting out "All right, New York!!!!!" is very distracting.

I keep getting acoustic & live versions of songs I love. I don't want to click on thumbs down because I don't want that song or artist skipped ... only that "version" of the song. There should be a way to exclude these versions.

Total agreement.  I'm not at the concert, just play the album version.

I wish there was an option to turn off live versions of songs.

I agree, this is a much needed feature

It is unbelievable how much "live" music is put into the Dave Matthews station. Over the years, I have put in several requests to Pandora support to remove all "live" music, but they simply say NO. On the Dave Matthews station there is "live" music almost every other song. It took me months to thumbs down the live music so that it was not every other song. It's still annoying beyond belief, and Pandora continues to pump in the "live" music (probably to save money?).

Please allow paying customers the option to opt out of the screaming, whistling, yelling, clapping, etc... that comes with all the live music.

If I wanted to hear a poorly-recorded, sub-par performance of a song, I'd go to the concert myself. I pay for pandora so I can listen to good music.

Even when Pandora decides to continue to dump several consecutive "Live" poorly-recorded, sub-par performance songs, with screaming, whistling, yelling, clapping , and you continue to thumbs down, the paying customers are told that it's no longer possible to skip the unwanted "Live" songs  because  of Licensing Restriction - Due to licensing restrictions, this song can't be skipped right now.

Unbelievable.
