Default Notifications are on even though they've been turned off

Ok, so I'm on stock nexus 5.

I have turned off notifications in my apps, but I still keep getting them. It's annoying me. Anybody know why? For instance, living social and fandango keep having notifications pop up and I can't figure out why.

Are you disabling the notifications in each specific app itself?

What I do, is go to Settings > Apps > Click on the app in Question, un-check the Show Notifications box and I am usually good to go.

Wow, thanks. I didn't know you had to do it that way. I was just disabling in the app itself.

You can also long-click the notification itself and disable notifications from the offending app right there. Saves some trouble.
