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]".


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.


Note that there is also the SilenceTrackStyle for tracks that are not untitled songs but just contain silence, and the DataTrackStyle for DataTracks.

IMO these could all be merged to or at least be grouped in a new page UnnamedTrackStyle --DonRedman

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).--Fuchs

There is no mention about using [unknown] as track titles in the StyleGuidelines 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. So should there be? --Shepard
