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.

You can use Mp3tag:

  • to remove a given text from all the tag fields of all MP3 files in a batch process:

LOL, maybe MP3PIRATEJUICE isn't the most reputable source of audio ;-)

You can create a custom rule in bliss to do this, and then it will operate on all future music copied into the library too.

To create a custom rule, first create the regex rule. Save this in .bliss/regex-rules:

# Rule to remove annoying pirate juice inserts in the tags downloaded
rule removePirateJuice with label "Remove MP3PirateJuice tags" has alternatives  
        REMOVE {
                find /^(.*) - \[MP3PIRATEJUICE.COM\]$/ replace with "$1"
        }
applies to artist, album_name, genre, track_name 

See: https://gist.github.com/gravelld/80e6ea3cc8ac6ae1b08e15366cb11953

When you restart bliss you'll have this in the settings:

Remove bad characters from fields

Select all the fields you want trimmed, then "Apply rules". You'll get one-click fixes for each non-compliant album, and you can semi-automate this using "Fix all visible" in the Inbox page.
