Disable Explicit Songs?

Is it possible to tell spotify not to play any songs with explicit lyrics?  I like to play random playlists or spotify's top lists sometimes but don't like songs with explicit lyrics. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Jonathan

The official ideas topic about being able to filter explicit/clean content is here if you want to add your support to that topic!

Yeah, Pandora may get my subscription and Spotify may lose it if this feature isn't made available soon!

I have cancelled my subscription.  Spotify claims they cannot censor music and they accommodate the musicians, but they don't do anything for their paying subscribers.

Not as yet. I'm pretty sure there's an idea on the Idea Board about this though. You might want to add your vote if you feel this is something that would be a good feature.

This can't be hard to do, why hasn't it been done. Songs are marked. Get this done quickly and it would please a lot of people, just the right thing to do.

This would be terrific.  I can't listen to spotify at work because of this.

I also can't listen at work unless I use earbuds or earphones & I just can't sometimes because I need to be aware of my surroundings as well.

It isn't always for the kids.  I'm pretty picky about what goes into my brain, and I would really like to avoid explicit lyrics!

I HATE radio edits/censorship but if it has to be included, it should just be a setting so I can avoid the censored version.

Re: Disable Explicit Songs?

Anyone working on this? Spotify is great until one of these songs pops up in Radio mode or when playing the Top List. Can't play this at work, and frankly I don't want to hear this stuff most of the time. how about a simple checkbox to block Explicits. You went to the trouble of tagging them, but there's nothing we can really do with that tag.

Re: Disable Explicit Songs?

Just wanted to bump this topic as well.  I noticed this with the radio feature as well, when listening to, of all things, a radio station based on "Learning Spanish". which started well with tracks of different language, then for some bizarre reason launched into an explicit track of porn sound effects? (not sure I see the relationship there, but in any case, I'd prefer a setting to block this.)

 

Thanks
