I felt like hearing a little "Enter Sandman" today in honor of # 42, the Great Mariano (that was a shot at Schultzy) . . . so I logged-in to my Pandora account, typed in "Enter Sandman" and lo & behold I get "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (How Ironic! Seems to me it tolls for Pandora & Bono's wasted $100mm)
"Why can't my Pandora station do certain things?

Our music licenses forbid hearing a song or artist in a predictable way.
Here are our primary licensing restrictions:
We cannot play a specific song or artist right away, or "on demand."
We cannot play more than four songs credited to a particular artist name in a three-hour period. This is the maximum, so each artist may play even less often than that.
A Pandora station cannot play a playlist of only certain songs or artists: we must include a mix of similar songs and artists on each Pandora station.
You cannot rewind, or immediately replay, any song on Pandora.
You cannot download or cache music from Pandora. Pandora requires an active internet connection. If you'd like to hear the music Pandora plays for you offline, we make it easy to purchase the music you hear.
A Pandora station cannot provide unlimited song "skips."
IMPORTANT NOTE: These licensing restrictions apply to all Pandora listeners, including those that have paid for unlimited listening hours or upgraded to Pandora One accounts. They also apply to all devices that support Pandora.
Our licensing restrictions are unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Adding any of these features would involve serious compromises affecting our core mission: offering the best free, personalized internet radio service that we possibly can.
In other words, our music licenses are the very thing that allows Pandora to play a wide variety of music to millions of listeners for free!"
