I have had an issue for several months now, which iTunes has been crashing instantly when I try to play certain songs. Today, after looking for ideas to fix it, I was able to pinpoint that the problem is with certain artists. The first one I know for sure in my iTunes Library is "Eminem", if I try to play ANY song with Eminem as the artist, iTunes will crash within one second every single time. However, if I changed the artist name to "Eminem1", the song will play perfectly fine. Changing the artist back to "Eminem" will lead back to the same crashes as before.

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5247363 Here is a topic where another user had the same issue on Mac. He had luck changing the artist name then right back again, I did not.

I have had this problem for several months, I'm not sure which version of iTunes it started on, but today I uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes with the current version with no luck.


Any ideas?
