GlengarryX Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
Hello friends,

I have an album that apparently has explicit content, so the red, bold explicit warning tag in the song title field tells me. I would like to remove said warning tag, but cannot seem to figure out how. I was hoping someone might be able to assist me.

Also, I have other albums in my iTunes by this artist, and this new album I have obtained, though listed properly under the artists column, is duplicated showing the artist's name one on top of the other. Is this because the album labeled explicit?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you kindly,


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    you mean to delete the album artwork with the "explicit" on it ?

    if so, select the tune in iTunes, right-click on it and choose +get info+. go to the artwork tab, click once on the image in the artwork box and hit delete. find the artwork you want in Safari and copy the image to the clipboard. go back to iTunes and paste (cmd-v) the image into the artwork window.

    Hello Jolly Giant!

    Thank you for the response. I don't think I explained the problem I am having too well. I am simply trying to remove the bold, red explicit warning tag that is applied to the album. It appears in the same field as the song title,after every song, but I have no access to edit it as I do the song title. I figured there must be a way to remove the tag, but again, I am having trouble figuring out how. Might you be able to help with this?

    Either way, thank you kindly the response. I look forward to hearing from you again.

    ah, i get it now.

    no, there is no way to get rid of that, AFAIK.

    Thank you for the second response, Jolly. I hope there is a way to remove that tag as I find it a bit of an eyesore. If anyone has any further information, please let me know.

    I appreciate the help,

    I'm not sure, but you could try this:

    Preferences> General> Show content ratings in library (Uncheck)
  • Jolly Giant Level 7 Level 7 (25,440 points)
    yep. that works. great stuff, Diane !

    though, in iTunes 9, the setting has been moved to the parental tab.

    Right. I meant to change it to parental. Forgot when I copied and pasted. Thanks!!

    Hello Diane, and thank you; I was able to remove the warning eyesore from iTunes in preferences!

    Part two of my conundrum is that there is now a duplicate of the artist's name in the artist column. I'm not sure if that ties into the fact the album was tagged as explicit. Normally if this happens, there is simply a typo or a space at the end of the artist's name. Oddly enough, that's not the case here. I erased and retyped all of the information correctly and a duplicate of the artist's name persists in the browse window, artist column. Might you have a tip to rectify this? Having my iTunes remotely unorganized is so bothersome. Ha.

    Thank you for all your help!

    Glad that it helped...somewhat, anyway.

    Sorry, but I don't know how to rid the library of the duplicate in the list. Have you tried quitting and relaunching iTunes or restarting the computer to see if that helps?
  • GlengarryX Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Even restarting iTunes and the computer didn't fix it. Weird, right? No worries, I will figure something out. Thank you and Jolly Giant for your help. It is very much appreciated!

    Just found this app which will let you edit the clean/explicit tag directly on the song:
