Tags are a terrible addition to the Audioscrobbler/Last.FM world. If done correctly I imagine that they'd be great to have, but their current incarnation is just haphazard and, well... wrong. Example, The Faint is tagged as female vocalists, punk, 80s, metal, etc. There is absolutely nothing metal or 80s about them, and... femal vocalists? Nine Inch Nails is tagged as indie rock and hip-hop. Now usually I'd just glance at the top 5 or so tags to get an accurate discription of what this band was all about. Sadly, the "radio player" does not think the same way a sane human being would. Fix this. Please.
