The website(s) I download most of my songs from spams the shi% out of MP3 tags filling every possible tag fields with its own address.

Is there a tool (for Windows, and preferably free) to search and remove text from all the tag fields of all MP3 files in a batch process?

For eg.

This is a song

Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up.MP3
ID3Tags:
    Title : Never Gonna Give You Up - [MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM]
    Artist : Rick Astley - [MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM]
    Album : Whenever You Need Somebody - [MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM]
    Genre : Dance-pop - [MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM]

I (only) want to remove " - [MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM]" from all the tags.

This is not what I want. This deletes the fields entirely. I only wanted to remove specific text from all the fields. –  laggingreflex Aug 10 at 3:04
