if anyone here is anything like me... you hate having a music library full of typo'd artists and mislabled song titles. or missing album names/artwork or the dreaded 'unknown' genre.

could we pool together a list of basic genres to incorporate into music librarys? so i can actually USE that setting on my ipod that lists the genres?

i'll start...

i don't have a 'rap' genre, i have a 'hip-hop' genre. even though they're different, most of my collection is only hip-hop, and any exception i don't have the time nor patience to evaluate.

bob dylan is 'folk', not alternative.

there is 'thrash', 'punk', and 'rock'. though i'm still undecided about 'stoner', 'doom', and 'black'.

opinions? thoughts?

I personally don't like categorizing everything (even though I still use some of those terms).

and I'd like to take this opportunity to express my distaste at the newly-meaningless 'indie' tag of recent times, despite most of these bands' major label status and marketing/recording budgets. everything that used to be called 'alternative' in the 90s is now just called 'indie' for quick-and-easy, watered-down packaging - while 90% of those bands are not 'independent' in the true sense of the word by a fucking mile (I mean, jesus h christ, I've heard Coldplanus described as such). give DIY credit where DIY credit is due.
