Yes, I was able to give these a Thumbs down. I refered to the stations thumbs-down list to give you this^.

As can be seen in the screenshots from my phone, these were all while listening via "My Station" mode

 

*ATTENTION*  I've also included some screenshots of songs that WERE supposed to be played & it played the piece from The Grudge 2 after playing many of the correct, Thumbs UP'd ones(visibly in the screenshots).  This is to give yall a quick idea of the kind of music the station is SUPPOSED to play.

Seriously guys, this screw up is almost as bad as listening to Christian hymns & then someone blasting Satanic Death Metal music over it.  COMPLETELY the opposite of what I've been led to believe is the point of the Music Genome Project. -_-

I agree! I'd like to move a song from one radio station to another where it fits better. I like the song, i.e. a Xmas song I enjoy, but I'd rather have it on my Xmas station, instead of the 90's Country radio it popped up on. I know we used to be able to do this, but that option disappeared a while back.

Right now my Jazz Fusion Station is playing Uriah Heep -Stealin', except it is labeled as the song Sweet Freedom, but no matter, I would never place Uriah Heap in a Jazz fusion category, no matter the song.  This seems to happen all the time. No matter what station I am playing in my collection, I seem to mostly hear songs I have thumbed up at some place in some other collection. The whole point of paying for Pandora is to hear some songs I wouldn't have heard otherwise.  I dont want to be fed a steady diet of my own favorites all the time. If I pick a genre Like Jazz Fusion, Or Bossa Nova, or a artist station like AC DC, George Clinton, Stan Getz,I don't want to hear Stevie Nicks, Norah Jones or Florence and the Machine.  When I want to hear them, I will listen to stations I have curated for them.   

I wrote about this before and a moderator suggested thumbing down songs that appeared that were 'out of sync' but a) I am not always sitting right by my computer or phone to have access to do this; I like to listen while I am doing things around the house like cooking, out side gardening, etc.; b) If I thumb down a song that I like because it is not playing in the right 'lounge', what does that do to the song when I am in the right place for it to play? will I never hear it again? Does it make it thumbs down throughout my account and algorithm?

@aevans117 I merged this comment back into your original post.

Giving a song a Thumbs Up tells Pandora to bring in similar artists and songs to your station.

Giving a song a Thumbs Down tells us not to play this track on this particular station. 


Keep in mind, Thumbs are station specific: rating a song with a Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down on one station will not affect any of your other stations.

For more information on how thumb ratings work on Pandora, you can view this help page article.

Hope we continue to see you around the community! 🎧

G rock

the algorithms have gotten messed up at least on my stations. I used to be able to play my stations and get my thumbs up songs now I get reggae every other song I keep putting thumbs down to no avail.   I’m also getting Hawaiian songs mixed in take note I have never put a thumbs up on a ragge song just not my musical flavor.  I’ve reported this problem to customer service but no help
