How to get rid of german songs in Discover weekly

Newbie

I have been happily using the Discover weekly function for some time now but this last month or so it has been cluttered with German songs. I don't necessarily dislike German songs, or any song in another language than English for that matter, but at its worst almost half of my Discover weekly play list was German. I have been disliking all German songs and Artists for some time now but it doesn't seem to work. Spotify keeps recommending German songs. How can I stop this digital blitzkrieg?

I have the same problem, which is driving me crazy! I'm trying to get rid of that shitty german music, but even though I'm doing same thing as you I can't get it to stop suggesting me german songs.

Hey me too! I’m German though but these suggestions making me nuts! If I wanna listen to German music I’ll go for it by my own. I would very much appreciate a switch off German song suggestions button!

As I Swede I get a lot of Finnish artists in my Discover Weekly. I've been fighting them for atleast a year now with the Dislike-button but still no luck.

Guess I'm not alone in this. In my case it can be due to the fact that I listen to some metal and lot of bands are from Scandinavia: this leads to my discover weekly being filled with songs in Finnish that is not exactly what I'm looking for.

 

Spotify doesn't learn from my dislikes in this case and I end up having more than half of my Discover Weekly wasted.

Same sh#t here

Im not German, never listen German music. And it gives me each week, 50-60% of the music is german. I dislike always but nothing change. It won't be a big deal for them to be able to select what langugages the user doesnt prefer. I wrote to the customer services and they replied me:

 

"Hello again Levente, 
Thanks for getting back in touch with us 🙂 
Since you have already tried banning the songs that you don´t listen too and they are still popping up. We suggest is starting over with a new account. This will restart our listening history, so any personalized content (Discover Weekly, Daily Mix, etc) will start again using the listening history on your new account. How does this sound?

We can make your email address free to use for creating a new account. Once it's created we can then transfer your saved music, playlists, followers, notification settings, and any personal details you registered (e.g. DOB/gender) to the new account for you. 

We will be waiting for your response to further assist you. 
Have a nice day, 

Karen
 
" How does this sound?" - pretty shitty I tell you
