    You have to remove it within iTunes. Would take forever manually, but with this AppleScript it's easy.

    Or if you have some unexplainable allergy to AppleScripts that makes you get spots and sneeze, you can just select the relevant songs, Get Info on them (File menu or COMMAND-I on Macs or CONTROL-I on PCs) and tick the Album Art box which, assuming they aren't all the same image, will change all the album art to nothing. :)

    This is the technique I use to get rid of all the info for my tunes apart from the song name and artist. :)

    You could just select all your tracks and do get info and click a check mark in the blank artwork box.
    Opps i guess mad jew beat me to it :)
    Oh and also its Control-A not Control-I, I make that mistake all the time, when I try to quit a program by pressing Control-Q.

    That's definitely easier. Didn't realize you could remove artwork so easily. Anyway, AppleScript is really useful for a lot of (other) things in iTunes.
