@Meredith While I'm quite confident that Spotify deals with the obvious hard core white power bands there are still many, many white power light artists available. The may prefer to be called "patriotic rock", "viking rock" (not the same as viking metal), "RAC", "hatecore" or something like that and the lyrics may be less obvious.

I don't think Spotify wants to go into this gray area, but it would be nice to give the users the tools they need to be able to reject it themselves.

At least some form of compromise should be allowed to blacklist / whitelist certain musicians from our Discover Weekly or Personal Recommendation Playlist, since Spotify is all about that. 

 

Not only for the offensive or politcally sensitive one, I am just tired being recommended **bleep**ty anime covers.

As long as we can still listen to rap songs about stealing cars,selling drugs to children,beating women,killing the White Devil and murdering people at will then this is fine.
