I am thrilled that we can delete scrobbles again, but... how come there's no option to delete a track or an artist from my library? Before we could do it quickly, now we'll have to delete scrobble by scrobble?

ugh I'm on the same boat, I need to delete some unwanted artists and there's no option to remove them entirely. Deleting scrobble by scrobble is torture.

Worse is when you try to delete the scrobble but when you get there they say you haven't heard it before, but it still appears on your library.

i want to delete stuff too. it keeps scrobbling my walmart-bought obscure nature CDs... and since i listen to them while i'm sleeping, they're taking over my top artists, tracks, and albums. don't think i'm going to connect with anyone who's a big fan of "nature quest." i just want to delete itttt

My scrobbles are all messed up because of the switch to the website, and I'm trying to delete artists to start fresh, but all I can figure out is how to delete individual tracks which will take forever.  Would be nice to delete Artists and Albums, would be a lot quicker!  Make it happen last.fm!

I do not know why they made this change on the site, before it was much more affordable, clean designer and no hassle even for beginners. Removing the option to delete all executions made in the profile, artist and songs executed was a big mistake.

That feature will not earn any money, the most important thing is to keep the ads displaying.

Bumping this acknowledged-but-unresolved issue from over 2 months ago...

Being able to remove tracks, artists and albums from our libraries is a pretty key function for keeping scrobbling stats accurate - surely THE core function - so it would be great if it is sorted in this week's update...

Failing that, please make it a priority for the next update.

Hi Last FM team,

It's a shame that I am yet again bumping this thread which was created around 5 months ago now and there's been basically no progress on the issue, beyond it being superficially acknowledged with a tag (as far as I'm aware, at least).

I know from this week's sprint that you will be focussing on the catalogue, but is it possible to also look at this as a priority, as an accurate catalogue is pretty meaningless if the associated listening stats are all over the place.

A reply from one of the developers/team (champions don't count) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

5 months. 5 f*cking months. This is terrible. How can you ignore your users like this? Shame.

I look forward to remove tracks with "unknown date".  It lasts for more than six months. :(

'Late' is an understatement. This seems like such a basic feature - especially since you can actually delete non-imported scrobbles.

My tedious workflow:

1) 'Artist page'
2) 'You have scrobbled this artist <link>x times</link>' (click link)
3) 'my library/artist' drill down via the
4) 'Listening History' to a single day to
5) delete 'x' each single scrobble
6) go back via browser history (back button) to day or month or year (where ever I still get a 'Listening History')
repeat 5 & 6 until each single scrobble has been removed

Would be great to have remove features on the 'my library/artist' page
- for individual songs
- for the whole artist

there's a few wrong tagged songs in my library that were imported when I created my account and I just can't delete them, there's no 'X' icon and their timestamp says 'Unknown Date'
pretty frustrating :/

I used to be able to remove tracks and I tried today but could not. I now see other users have been requesting this feature to be re-enabled for over 7 months now. This is unacceptable and a shame to see the direction Last.fm has evidently gone in. Support Team, please communicate with your users.
