IMO this policy shouldn't be forced. In most cases it is more helpful not to use '''[untitled]''' but some descriptive title like '''(Intro)''' or '''(Poem)''' (Note the parenthesis that divides them from real track names).--[[User:Fuchs|Fuchs]]
 
 
There is no mention about using '''[unknown]''' as track titles in the [[Style Guideline|StyleGuideline]]<code><nowiki></nowiki></code>s although it is a common consensus to do for titles where the editor doesn't know if this song has been given a title somewhere.

Style for Untitled Tracks

Enter "[untitled]" as the name for untitled music tracks.

If the track is released elsewhere with an official name, this name should be used instead of "[untitled]".

Rationale

Many tracks have no official name, and we use the special title "[untitled]" for these tracks. While there are albums that have no track titles, the more common example of untitled tracks is the "hidden" or bonus tracks that you often find on CDs after the listed tracks.
