My Question or Issue

 

There is this one ad that annoys me every ad break when I’m listening to music. Usually, I am fine with ads, but this ad plays some very loud and annoying heavy rock music to advertise a playlist. I also thought I heard a curse word in the ad as well. Every time I try to dislike the ad, it never goes away, and such has been happening this whole week, I am beyond annoyed by this. Please help.

By the way, the ad was advertising this Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1ZF8nLIV8mtVv3UzyjfX1W?si=7o1Ey687QjGijXAbGMBSTA

The ad had stopped for a while, until just recently today where it popped up again. Why can’t they just stop advertising content that doesn’t interest me?

More information since no one has responded yet: I have found the ad song by Shazam. The song that plays in the ad for the playlist where I heard the curse word is titled “CMFT Must Be Stopped” by Corey Taylor. Checking the lyrics, I can find the part I heard in the ad, and guess what, they do in fact say the f word. Spotify is showing ads... with cursing. Is that even legal? While I do listen to explicit music, I would not like to hear ads with explicit words or loud music, especially because I usually try to use Spotify to unwind, and an ad like this one just comes off as extremely annoying, and I still try to dislike it every time it comes up. Helpppp.
