Promoted Tracks Do Not Fit

Just logged on and the first track on my Stream was a promoted track in alternative rock.. A genre I don't even listen to, and have absolutely no interest in (no hate for it, just not what I listen to). I'm having a hard time thinking of how the algorithm chose a song in a genre with 0 like/repost history on my profile. I could understand if it picked a song in genres that I actually listen to, probably wouldn't have even noticed it was a promoted track. Is soundcloud purposely trying to push users away?

I agree, I wouldn't mind if they were genres I enjoyed and listen to frequently, it would be a great way to find new stuff. Instead I'm served up literal audio garbage that I would never ever listen to.
