Happened again. This time with the 90's playlist. Heaven forbid I should click on one of these ads to find a few songs. The WHOLE thing will be forced down my throat with no option to make it go away afterwards.
I am going to uninstall and reinstall again, but I want someone to tell me here (moderator or tech staff) why I have to do something so drastic to actually have control over my own queue.
Try creating a new playlist, but leave it completely empty. Then to clear your play queue anytime, right click on the playlist name in the sidebar and click "Choose as current playlist". You might get an error about Importing tracks as local files but just ignore that ;)
