I've spent a fair amount of time making a number of playlists across various genres. Every so often, original tracks are no longer available on Pandora, and the program substitutes a different version. Usually the substitution is some awful re-recording or remix.
Instead of auto-substituting songs no longer available, just gray the track out. I don't know if it's to give the illusion they're not losing catalog or some other reason, but in the end, I invariably remove the substitute. It's a literal playlist destroyer.
My spouse is an employee, so my service is free. If I paid for my sub, I would have switched services a long time ago for this reason alone.

If an original version of a song is no longer available on Pandora for whatever reason, they should gray that song out on your playlist. Instead they replace the original track with some awful re-recorded version. This has ruined just about every playlist I've made on Pandora. It's almost not worth fixing because at a glance, you can't tell what's changed. My spouse is an employee, so my service is free. If I paid for Pandora, I would have switched services with zero hesitation a long time ago. Gotta fix this and keep the original tracks where you can. It's like listening to karaoke covers sometimes!
