Just a few years ago, Jason Derulo stopped by our offices to celebrate receiving the 10 billionth thumb on Pandora. Today, I am proud to share that we have passed 50 billion thumbs. 50 billion. That’s roughly seven thumbs for every person on Earth.

As milestones go, this one is particularly meaningful. Our entire mission is to give listeners the ability to personalize their experience. Thumbs give each listener the power to make Pandora personal to them. Every thumb up and thumb down has not only made your stations better, but helped us make better song choices for every listener. This is a serious group effort – so, thanks!

As you can imagine, it took a lot of songs to hit 50 billion thumbs. While we can’t share every single one, we did want to highlight some of the more momentous thumb recipients along the way.

We didn’t stop there. Check out the image below to see what songs are the most thumbed up all time to which states have the most active thumbers. What are your thumb habits? Have you thumbed up one of the songs on the list? Who’s your most thumbed-up artist?

    I ain't gonna lie, Pandora is da shit. From 2Pac 2 Kendrick Lamar Station, J Cole 2 Big Sean Station, y'all got it goin' on. 4 real !!! I do kinda wish y'all got a lil' mo' of Detroit artists on yo' station like Blade Icewood, Doughboyz Cashout, Oba Rowland & many mo'. But still, y'all doin' yo' thang.

    I love Pandora music! I wish I could only make my on Playlist or replay the song, I want to hear again. It would be a nice if I could save a song. I have no complaints about Pandora like I said it's a great station better than others.
