Why is pandora stuck on one song they released in the late nineties and not the entire rest of their canon?
@Kippu Artist based stations will usually play a wide variety of that artist's music, but artists with large discographies can often have new or rare songs and albums overlooked. Starting a station based on a song that is more specific to what you're looking for from a particular artist's collection should help with this issue.
To explore deeper cuts in an artist's collection you can create a new song-based station, that'll narrow the parameters of the music you're likely to hear.
You can also select the Deep Cuts Pandora Mode when listening from our website on a computer or on your mobile device.
Alternatively, you can use the Add Variety feature to add songs as seeds to your current station.
To add variety from a computer, click on the name of the station you'd like to edit. If the station is not available from your Now Playing page, click on the My Collection button first, and then select the name of the station you'd like to edit. This will take you to a station details page which shows you information about your personalized station.
You can add variety to your station by scrolling down to the Station Created From section. Just choose + Add Variety. Next, enter the name of another song, hover your mouse over your selection and click on the + symbol that appears to add that seed to your station.
Keep in mind, each seed you add will inspire hundreds of other songs, so a little variety goes a long way!
Let me know if this helps.

Do me a favor. Play "Hanging on the Old Barbed Wire" by Chumbawamba and see what comes up right after it.
Next time don't assume I haven't exhausted my options in trying to "teach" Pandora what I want to listen to.
Don't assume that they should assume you HAVE exhausted all your opion either. You simply asked why it was stuck on one song, and they were just trying to help. If you want a more useful answer, try giving my details up front... 😉
