If I were to downvote an acoustic or remix to a song I actually like will that keep pandora from playing there original song?

@andi3 Thanks for following up.
You may want to take a look at your Chris Stapleton Radio station, and review the additional variety that has been added.
At first glance I can already see that the track you posted by Art Tatum Trio is being pulled from the Charlie Christian seed you've added to your station.
Here is a screenshot of where I am seeing the additional artists/tracks that you added to your station:
You can delete any of the bad seeds by editing your station.

1st request song,
2nd request again 100 different ways..
Still plays live song.
Find this thread... Thumbs down the song, wait ask again and guess what!? The same **ahem** version of the song that I just thumbs down plays.... So, for being a long time premium user this is the one thing that erks me....
@Dk6184 I'm happy to look into this further.
Can you please send me a screenshot of the track in your thumbs down list that still played?
Also, what is the name of the station you gave it a thumbs down on?
Let me know.
my suggestion would be to hit "I'm tired of this track" for every song that plays from that horrible album you don't like. This will take it off all stations but will not prevent the regular versions or other billie holiday songs from playing.
Is there a way to stop so many of these re-recorded songs from playing? I am paying Pandora for the original version not some cheaper re-recording done after these guys retired. If this is how Pandora is I will go back to Spotify. The only reason I switched was that Spotify's radio feature is awful, but this is way worse.
Unfortunately, there isn't a way to permanently stop playing live or re-recorded songs on your station.
However, the way to control your Pandora stations is by using Thumbs.
If there's an artist or song you don't like hearing on one of your Pandora stations, make sure to consistently give them Thumbs Down (and no Thumbs Up) on that station. This tells Pandora that you do not wish to hear that artist/song on that station. Thumb ratings are station-specific.
In addition, this will not keep the studio version of that track from playing and doesn't necessarily mean that you will no longer hear other songs by that artist.
Hope this helps, happy listening!
I just thumbs downed three songs with my thumbprint radio. I really like the songs, but they were each remixed versions. An added thing after liking or disliking a song. "Hey you liked this song, was it the artist, or the vibe of the song" "You didn't like the song, was it the artist, different version, or just this song". Sometimes when dealing with a station, all the other songs rock, but this one may have a bad memory attached or just don't like it. I like songs similar, but don't want my judgement on one song.
We don't currently have the option to filter out certain versions of tracks, such as remixes or live recordings on Pandora stations.
However, if you Thumb Down a live or remixed version of a song, you will not hear that version again on the station you're listening to. This will not keep the studio version of that track from playing and doesn't necessarily mean that you will no longer hear other songs by that artist. As always, you should use your Thumb ratings freely to tell Pandora what you want and don't want to hear.
In the meantime, make sure to give this existing feature request a ❤️ to express your interest in getting it added to the service as well: Exclude Live Performance/Remixed Versions of Songs
Hope this helps!
there needs to be a feature that allows you to ban remixed and re-recorded versions of songs.
for example, great white made a new recording of once bitten twice shy and now none of my stations ever play the original version of the song they did and it's really frustrating. the version doesn't say "re-recorded" in the title but it is a new version on a greatest hits album. now I can only play the orginal album cut if I put it in a playlist or play it on demand.
it's terribly frustrating.
