[Other] How to stop hearing a song or band

Spotify used to have thumbs up and thumbs down buttons.  I really liked that Spotify offered that great feature which, I believe, worked.  Those buttons never worked on Pandora so I left Pandora for Spotify.

 

Since then, Spotify got rid of the thumbs down button and replaced it with (what looked like) a "do not enter" button that, when I hit it, it stopped playing the song and moved onto the next song.  I used it just two days ago.


Now the "do not enter" button is gone.  Why?  (And the songs that were playing when I hit the "do not enter" button are back on the Play Queue...like bad seafood.)

 

I mostly use the Radio function to listen to songs.

 

Why must I listen to songs I don't want to ever hear or from artists (the term is used loosely) from whom I don't want to ever hear?

 

What is the point of me paying for music that depresses or upsets me?

Hey there!

 

A similar idea has already been suggested here:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Closed-Ideas/Radio-Ban-Artist-from-Radio/idi-p/292576

It has been discussed within the Spotify Team in charge and it has sadly been decided that this idea will not be implemented any time soon. However, Spotify will revisit those idea topics from time to time, so hopefully it will be implemented in the future. ;)

P.S: More information about how the ideas exchange works can be found here.
