Tracks without name can't be scrobbled as they have no name.
Blame the artist(s).

"Tracks without name can't be scrobbled as they have no name.
Blame the artist(s)."

But "Unknown" IS the name of the song in several cases.

Dimension Labyrinth - Unknown
Lifehouse - Unknown
Mind.In.A.Box - Unknown
Thy Serpent - Unknown

Etc.

exactly! "Unknown" IS the name, it's not untitled. "Unknown" is a perfectly common title, i imagine. you can't just disallow everything under that name. it's completely ridiculous.

Yeah except "Unknown" IS the official name of the song(s).

Why would we blame the artist? Obviously it's understandable if on the file under artist it is <unknown> but why would you do this for a track title? Like they said, it's a somewhat common title/word. It makes no sense to continue blacklisting this word just because you said so.

How idiotic.
