All good. 

Please point to the section in the terms that states I have agreed to explicit content.

I get that..

I'm a premium user myself so ads don't bother me but if what the poster says is true then that means the language from some ads is probably worse than what's accepted on this forum.

 

I also understand that it's impossible to check every ad and even more impossible to draw a line of what is and what is not permitted (everyone has a different threshold there)..

 

Adult ads pay better and personally I wouldn't mind but that's because I have no kids yet..

 

A checkbox would be nice.

tag for more but only non-adult ads.. or untag for adult but less ads

That way, income wouldn't be hurt and it's a choice for everyone...

I got my first advert with foul language today. I understand the need for ads and happily listen to them, but it is totally unacceptable to be forced to listen to such disgusting lyrics.

 

Either censor the language, or maybe think about analysing the music being played by each client and targeting adverts accordingly. I've never bought a rap CD and never will, so that was a wasted advert and an annoyed customer. Surely giving me ads that match the genres I actually listen to would result in more uptake?

I'm really annoyed that I HAVE to listen to the mother****** advert while listening to Spotify with my children in the same room. I'm sure that I am not the only person with this issue. There should be an opt-out button for explicit language.

Also thinking of leaving Spotify if this carries on....

I understand that some might get a little offended when they hear that magic word: motherfu****, but in the end, I think those kinds will anyway hear those words and know what they are. From my point of view it is the responsibility of parents to teach their kids when and where to use those words. After all they are just words, so no big deal :)

 

Basically we could have a conversation like this: Why meat eaters are forced to eat vegetables between the hamburger, but not vice versa :D

 

So don't take it too seriously :)

Life ain't that difficult... Just say: Hi!, Smile and be prepared to do something crazy...

To be honest, I don't like hearing it either. I'm sure my kids have heard it on the school bus plenty of times, but I just don't want to listen to it while listening to Mozart :-D

It is all about choice - from veggies between burgers to burgers between veggies...

Age does not matter "Grace". The explicit ads are disgusting regardless if the person is 13, 18, or 45.

No, this needs addressed.  Condom ads.  Very dark horror ads.  Ads saying A** recently.  Some of this is also the fact older users disagree with being forced to hear or see these sort of things, and with radio and television they are more censored than Spotify, you have more channels to escape to, and Spotify lacks tailoring to accounts for specific ads based on gathered data, which is good, since music is rather ambiguous to figure out what people buy let alone love.  Like explicit artwork on certain songs that are unwanted, this is another issue Spotify handlely ignores outright.

And we may be freebies, but the paid advertizing is money for you still and there is some trouble with us bothering with a free service that forces explicit ads.  We are paying...with ads sadly, but still paying some time to listen to them.  Please bear that in mind and at least give courtesy due and not upset people with inappropiate ads.  Some of these have been handmade with Spotify's help and contain explcit content.

Since this was still an issue 2 years ago I fear this won't be resolved any time soon. I work in a church, and while the words are not unfamiliar to me, "Metal AF" has no relevance to my life or the music I listen to. Maybe find a way to make the ads more relevant, thus making advertising more worth it for the advertisers? Having that ad jump out loudly in my office is not very condusive to me continuing to use the service at work.
