Another approach to block the site is to modify your hosts file on your local computer to include

 

127.0.0.1       madeinamerica1-lh.akamaihd.net

 

This will prevent the Budweiser ad / live music from being streamed.

Hey ch1ris23 - What device is this happening with--could you let us know the OS you're using (e.g. OSX 10.8.3)

 

I'd try a clean reinstallation first if you haven't already. Keep us updated with how that works for you--thanks!

Reinstalling Spotify fixed the stream problem for me, but I can't imagine that we're the only two people to have this problem with the Spotify application.

 

EDIT: I spoke too soon, the stream just opened up again and is now playing over my music.

As a workaround, go to the Discover page and mute the audio in the stream. It won't solve bandwidth issues, but will let you listen to your Spotify.

Same problem here.  Spotify is playing this "Budweiser, Made in America" stream at 100% volume.  The first thing my 2-year old son and I  heard, was some rapper shouting obscenities at the top of his lungs (f** this, f** that, etc...).

 

-1 to Spotify allowing lewd content to activate by default on their service, and -1000 to Budweiser for inviting foul mouth rappers to represent their company.  May stop listening to Spotify altogether.  Will definitely not buy Budweiser again.

What is with the concert on the discover page?

the concert ad thing on the discover page autoplays when I started spotify, has no pause button, no volume control other than mute, and plays over any music I actually want to hear. I had to relaunch spotify and quickly change to a different page to dodge the video.

 

What gives?

Agreed. This is incredibly obnoxious. I cant stop the streaming. I dont want this <Snip-Language ~Anthony> playing in the background. Get this <Snip-Langauge ~Anthony> off of my spotify.

This is cutting into my bandwidth. Let me turn this off.

How the <Snip-Language ~Anthony> do I turn off this stupid <Snip> concert? Oh, I'm sorry, are you annoyed by me suddenly <Snip> bursting in to <Snip> spirals of <Snip> cursing? Well that's too <Snip> bad because that's what I <Snip> got when I <Snip> turned on Spotify and it <Snip> blazed in my ear with <Snip>-laden mediocre rap.

 

Turn off this stupid <Snip> piece of <Snip> garbage concert.

 

<There is reallly no need to swear on the community, no matter how annoyed you are. It does absolutely nothing to get more attention, and it just makes everyone more agitated. I could easily have removed your post for the amount of (implied) language you used here, so be greatful your post still exists. ~Anthony>
