Ability to block Artists

I often find when listening stations or playlists I come across artists/songs that I really don't like or don't want to listen to at all. Having the ability to maintain a block list of artists/songs so that music app would skip these automatically would be very useful.

I would like to see this too. I understand why the free services don't offer this, but something you pay for it should be offered.

I really want to be able to block specific songs I don’t want my child listening to even though they are not technically explicit.

We got our 11yo an Echo Dot for her room for Christmas. It has parental controls enabled, explicit content blocked, and shuts out interaction between 9:30pm and 7:00am. However, we want the ability to block specific words, songs, and/or artists. Working in IT for almost a decade, I know this isn't overly difficult and I'm pretty surprised Amazon, with its dev budget, hasn't implemented this relatively simple feature set.

Not seen any movement on this. The developers should be forced to listen to Crazy Frog's version of Axel F 50 times in a row (my kids current favourite) and then they'll soon implement this feature. I think a relatively simple way would be with the companion app. For example you could select previously played songs or artists and block from there, rather than asking Alexa to block something (my kids would just ask it to unblock).

It is incomprehensible that a company with the size and technological advancement of Amazon does not have the simple feature to block a song or artist in their Amazon music or on the Alexa app. Quite frankly, I am sick to death of hearing “baby shark,“ by Pinkfong. While it is not an explicit song, it will burrow itself into your soul even while you’re sleeping. Come see on, Amazon. Fix the issues before continuing to release new stuff. Take care of the people who have already given you money as well as the people whose money you are trying to get.

The phrase ‘Cliff burrows into your soul even while you’re sleeping’ is so true!!!

So come on Amazon Fix the issue.

In my case, it’s George Winston. I out my kids to bed listening to Bach. I have done it si ce he was born. Out of nowhere, it plays some crappy song by George Winston instead of Bach every few months. Not it is trying to get me to listen to his new albumn. I never want to hear anything by George Winston again! It keeps messing up my kid going to sleep!
