Denied - Skip Terrible Music

By Boy van Amstel

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.

Description

Denied sees what you're playing in Spotify and iTunes and automatically skips songs that you dislike.

Tracks can be skipped by their artist, title, album, whether they contain explicit lyrics*, or if you’ve heard them before in the past few hours.

Denied allows you to truly enjoy Top 40 playlists, the Christmas season, Spotify Radio and iTunes Radio.

Works with the Spotify desktop app and iTunes.

"That’s where Denied comes in. With a few clicks, you can banish your least-favorite songs or bands from earshot for good."
– Macworld

"Spotify is awesome, but it has one problem. When you're listening to compilations or radio, you sometimes come across artists you hate. Denied fixes that by creating simple rules."
– Lifehacker

"Fortunately you can now download a nifty little app to prevent unwanted artists sneaking into your speakers."
– FACT


Features
–––––

• Create rules to skip songs by their title, artist or album.
• Specify match criteria: starts with, ends with, contains or equals to.
• Skip songs that contain explicit lyrics.
• Skip songs that you've heard before in the past few hours.
• See which song is currently playing and..
• Add rules straight from the Now Playing information.
• Optionally display notifications when a song is skipped.
• Import and export rules, allowing you to download pre-made rule lists and share your own rules with your friends.


Requirements
–––––

• Works with the Spotify desktop app and iTunes.
• You'll need a distaste for certain bands, songs or albums, explicit lyrics or repeating songs.

* Skipping explicit songs requires an internet connection and that the song is available in Spotify's music library (but works with Spotify and iTunes).

Obviously nobody in their right mind would skip a song by Futurecop! or Power Glove. That album art is just too awesome though.

What's New in Version 1.4.2

Thanks for using Denied! Here's what's been done for version 1.4.2:

• Denied's ability to skip tracks that are labeled explicit has been restored!
• Album art is displayed properly again.
• Rdio no longer exists, so all references to it have been removed.

Customer Reviews

Makes Spotify Family and Workplace Friendly!

Users have been asking Spotify for the option to exclude songs with “Explicit" tags since 2012!
After 5 years it appears that this will never be implemented in their code.
I’m glad to have found this app, which accomplishes this easily and affordably. Thank you!
