Ideas: Option to block all clean or explicit content

Ideas: Option to block all clean or explicit content

Status: Open Ideas

Pandora currently includes an option to filter out explicit content, and only play Clean or Radio Edit versions of songs.

I would like to request the opposite option, namely: Filter Clean Content.

In a way similar to the "Filter Explicit Content" option, this option would only play songs that have their un-edited, explicit content.

As an informed, consenting adult, I would prefer to listen to the "Dirty" versions of songs. As I dislike the "Clean" versions of these songs, I would prefer to not hear them. Currently the only way to do that is to thumb the song down, which just removes it and all versions of it from my shuffle or playlist.

I would like to never hear censored music, I mostly listen to rap and it is a huge vibe killer.



Similar to the Explicit Content filter, add a setting to filter out songs that have been Censored to bypass the explicit filter. There are two groups of people that will greatly appreciate this setting.

1. People who do not want explicit songs AT ALL. Because many explicit songs are poorly censored, or even if they're done well, the content of the lyrics are still offensive even without the "curse words" included.

2. People who want explicit songs in their original form, and are disgusted at the censored versions.

A good example of a song that is poorly censored and would upset both of these groups is LMFAO - Shots (ft. Lil Jon)

If you ain't gettin drunk - get the fwhats out the club
If you ain't takin shots - get the fwhats out the club
If you ain't come to party - get the fwhats out the club

Are you kidding? There's plenty more in that song alone, but "fwhats" is stupid even in text form.


When listening to tracks recorded as "Explicit" and a "Clean" version is played the song overtracks the "bad words" or blanks them out disturbing the quality of the song. I would like to remove "Clean" versions of songs from playing on my station. How to do this, or add this feature (I am old enough to listen to "bad words").

After a couple of years, multiple postings on countless pages of comments and pandora still hasn’t figured this out. I’m moving to a competitor as this situation here is not getting any better. Every song from one of my favorite artists has been censored recently, (along with a few other artists) and I mean every song. It has completely ruined the listening experience, which is a bummer cause I listen to music for hours while welding at work. 

I know it really annoys me but make a playlist so you don’t have to have
