This is not a solution if it's not usable everywhere. I.e atm i'm using mac. And i'm really considering to abandon spotify since some artists, that i really dislike, make it unusable for me if they creep into the end of every playlist.
This solution isn't good enough. If we find an artist or a song by an artist truly repulsive, we should be able to block this on all devices and from ever appearing as a suggestion for additions to our playlists.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the Community!
We understand that the difference in availability with some features between devices might cause some frustration and we assure you that you're feedback has been passed on to the right team.
Currently the option to block an artist from being played is available only on mobile devices for Android and iOS users. To activate it, navigate to the artist page and from the three dot menu in the upper right corner select Don't play this artist. It this case it's a good idea to perform a clean reinstall, so that all app files get built up anew.
If you'd like the feature to block artists account-wide on every device, we suggest that you post an idea about it. The Idea Exchange is a great way for us to keep track of what changes our users are interested in and how popular a certain idea is. This page explains how exactly your feedback reaches Spotify

Just want to add my 2cents and give my voice to the displeasure at my ability to customize my listening experience as a PAYING user. Having the ability to ban/block songs should be a basic option in all services....
Slacker, now LiveXLive has that option..... if their services worked across all my platforms I would go back in a heartbeat (and may still just because....). Even free subscribers should have this option but at the very least those that are paying to use the service should. There is NO reason not to add something this simple.
This is NOT a fix, workaround, or answer. Granular control of what a paying subscriber listens to should be given to the subscriber. I have a way to like a song, I should also have a way to dislike a song so I don't have to skip it time and time again. Just because I like a certain artist doesn't mean I like every one of that artists songs. This is unacceptable!!
Any information on bringing this in to the 2020? The inability to simply block a song (PC) and have it block on all devices tied to the account seems like something that should of been available day 1.
Great music service held back many annoyances. I am looking at you 1 song per account nonsense!
At last: Option to block "RAP" (espec. Gangsta Rap) - I don`t like to offer this absolutely nothing worse "music" to my children - this Genre should be able to block COMPLETELY - 99 % asocial, aggressive, hurting...
