I finally started using the Genre tag just to help manage my mp3 collection. I've always wiped out the genre tag before as the idea that something fits into one and only one genre strikes me as plainly idiotic. And I had to use abbreviations and single letters to get around iTunes' annoying autocompleting.

Anyway, I've come up with the following so far:

BMSR for Black Moth Super Rainbow
inc. Satanstompingcaterpillars, collaborations, side-projects, covers, remixes

BORIS for Boris
inc. collaborations

C for classical instrumentation
like piano, cello, orchestral

D for drone-y drone
inc. Stars of the Lid, Pan-American, gamelan

EE for energetical electronical
inc. Clark, Aphex Twin, Cepia, Team Shadetek

F for folky
inc. Joanna Newsom, Donovan

I for indieish
inc. The Microphones, Jessica Baliff

M for metalish
inc. Lightning Bolt, Sunn O)))

N for noise-based stuff
inc. Merzbow, Tim Hecker, Wolf Eyes, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Kevin Drum, Emil Beaulieau

ODD for Odd Nosdam
inc. production and collaborations

P for poppy
inc. The Essex Green, The Sundays, The Twilight Sad

PSY for psychedelic
inc. Deerhunter, Islaja, Paavoharju

R for rock
inc. Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin

I will probably merge Folk and Indie, but all this has cut down on track-locating time.
