    First off let me say that I have searched the forums. I have songs that have the label "Explicit" in red next to the title. I want to get rid of all of these. Most of the answers have this "uncheck Show content ratings in library" but unless I am blind, this is absent in iTunes 8 (currently 8.2.1). I have seen the program "subler" but I don't want to use that because it is complicated and I have a lot of explicit songs. There HAS to be an easier way of doing this. Any help??

    :apple::apple::apple::DThis is not possible, at least, I dont think so. If you are annoyed by those then try changing the name and then changing it back. If that doesnt work then you change the name by adding a small unoticeable character like ' or . at the beginning or end.

    Didn't work. Did you even try that before suggesting? It's a 2 second process....
    Anybody else? PLEASE

    I noticed that all the explicit titles were songs that I bought. I tried converting them into another file type (thinking this would delete the purchase info) but this didn't work. Is there a way to delete the purchase information for a song? Should I import it into something else then import to iTunes? :confused:

    They're all songs you've purchased from itunes right? I think the reason they do that is so that parents know what their kids are listening to. It might be real hard/impossible to disable that.

    I believe the "explicit" tag is not something that can be edited by the end user. Its an invisible flag in the file itself.

    I've seen iTunes do this to CD's I've imported. I don't know how to remove it. I attached an example below, as you can see Lossless files with the "Explicit" warning.

    I read this on another forum and I don't have and explicit songs on my work computer to confirm.
    I am running 8.2 and the
    iTunes - Preferences - Parental Tab - uncheck "Show content ratings in library" is there

    I don't think that applied to music though... I thought that was for video content
