Hello, Can I block specific artists even if they are featured in a playlist?

I am linked to my facebook and even though I generally make my own playlists featuring the music I like ofcourse, sometimes I just listen to the top100 because I want to hear diffrent things, the problem is the occasional Justin Bieber, Nickleback, One Direction etc. which I don't want to hear/listen to.

 

Is there anyway to block those artists so their songs can't be played anymore.

 

I use Spotify Premium if that is helpful information

And people ask me: Why don't you get premium if you really like it?

And I answer: On my Winamp, I didn't had to skip, because there were no music that I did not like. I simply won't ever pay to only "be able to skip MORE tracks".

Others: But the quality of the music is better and you have no ADS.

Me: Ads take 30sec, some are funny and I laugh at it. Better quality? I do love music, and that's why I enjoy doing other things while listening to music, better quality won't matter. And being able to skip more... I don't want to waste time skipping music, I love radios so I can DISCOVER more music/artists but some that I already KNOW, and I really DO NOT WANT to hear, is a pain in the @$$ having to stop what you're doing to "skip" a song...

Netflix don't make me watch what I don't like, it don't even suggest it to me. May no be about music, but as a service..

 

And by the way, in MY opinion I think it's disrespectful to say "solved" when it's a LIE, I came here looking for a possible SOLUTION and not to see that you guys are saying that you "may" (most surely NOT) implement it.

Topics are marked solved by community members, not Spotify. ;) 

I agree this is a much needed feature, but they I guess if you take the winamp example you can just listen to your own playlists (which is a fair comparison).

Yeah, but it is Spotify fault for not having a way to contest the solve status.

If you did not got it, I'm not using winamp because I want to discover new music/artist etc, I'm not reveling here, but in my country Spotify started the testing stage, and by quantity, not quality I HATE most of my country music, but basically the genre, I am getting ADS for bands, music and genres that makes my dark side appear, because I really really really really hate it.

Its like I was an chocoholic and spotify is only advertising beers, and I never listened any kind of that music on spotify. I was so happy when I got the news it was coming here, now I'm screaming, "Please Pandora, come here, spotfy is doing every single thing wrong". And I want to call spotify attention, these music I hate, and you don't stop advertising, is for people that is afraid to spend money online, and the people that don't like these music are the ones that spend... I know because I teach the computes basics to these people..

 

And about using my own play lists on winamp, I used do download from torrent, but since I make my own money, I stopped that, but download and organizing files, some with DRM some without (when legally acquiring them) is a pain, and since I want to discover, I don't want to waste money with music that I may not like before hearing it.
