    I'll take a stab at it and say your ID3 tags aren't in order. The Droid (like basically everything that plays music these days) checks the file's ID3 tag for information (Artist, album, song, etc...)

    So if your tags are empty or wrong you'll get random stuff.

    there's a lot of programs and apps for PC/Android to auto-tag things. I bought mp3tagger (for my Droid) and it works pretty well. Will tag and download album art automatically.

    Mp3tag for PC works pretty well too.
