Searched for the song Dirty Little Rock Star. Search results showed three songs, only one with the correct title by The Cult. I clicked on that link and it shows it appears only on Promo Only: Modern Rock Radio (September 2007), but it doesn't show the Born Into This album (http://www.allmusic.com/album/born-in....

Hi Jody,
The issue we're having here is that we have two different spellings of the song in our database.

"Dirty Little Rock Star" http://www.allmusic.com/song/dirty-li...
and
"Dirty Little Rockstar" http://www.allmusic.com/song/dirty-li... which shows the result for Born Into This in the Appears On list.

This is a great example of a refinement we should make to search (to make it a bit more flexible in finding both versions of the spelling).
Thanks

Just FYI, we've been doing some work to improve our search and this was one of the use cases we've been working with.

All variations of this song come back in our search beta now:
