    O man my head hurts.

    Ok so anyone who is really into music has moved away from the stock music player I am sure by day #2 with the whatever Android phone you are using.

    Mixzing, Winamp, PowerAMP.
    All good quality replacements.

    So I notice in Winamp and in PowerAMP that my genres are all mixed up. I have 3 tracks in UNKNOWN GENRE, 1 in (148), 1 in *Rock.... just all these weird names.
    Using PowerAMP I change the Genre from UNKNOWN to ALTERNATIVE.
    Go to Library > Genre > UNKNOWN: still has 3 tracks listed there. Open it, yep that one I just changed is listed there. Go to INFO: it says ALTERNATIVE.
    Go to GENRE > ALTERNATIVE: it's listed there too!?!?!
    Plug Droid into laptop. Open Media Monkey. Scan. Fuix 100's of genres.
    Fire up PowerAMP. RESCAN: all the odd genres are still there.
    Yet when I click INFO the correct genre is listed there.
    My head is spinning now. Where is it getting this info from?!?!?!?!?!
