In most of my "Inspired by" playlists regardless of genre, there is a 2 to 3 song block of some local (Finnish) popular songs. I find these songs pretty bad personally, and even if I didn't they usually don't fit the playlist at all. Very jarring to suddenly change genre completely.

I understand that it makes sense to offer songs that people in your area listen to, but this is a completely wrong place to do that. It would make more sense in Flow.

Below is an example.

Also in Israel! It's really annoying.
Listening to 'inspired by slaughterhouse, Eminem, d12, and terrible pop songs show up!
I did get some Israeli rap which I love but not pop crap.
