Re: Music Categories for torrents??

I once worked at a record store where they had Harry Chapin under Comedy.

Cross genre bands have made even the old standards of Rock, Jazz, Soul, Classical, Comedy, Big Band, Religious and Country difficult to manage. Would duplicate, triplicate etc. entries have to appear to appease those who believe a band belongs in a certain category?

Then you have to deal with "____ band is not _____ it is _____." arguments which attract idiocy galore, like someone who tells his buddies that so and so is listed under whatever at TTD and all his buddies join not to trade but solely to argue about the label.

Occasionally a band comes along that is so new that even a internet search reveals very little. In that case the original poster could for the curious give a clue to the type of music.
