I have thought about this too! I think it’s a good idea, but sometimes bad tags are introduced by the band/label level tags (I think). For instance, if I give my band/label the tags ‘rock, hip-hop’, then every album under my BC page will have those tags added at the bottom of the page. If you can separate those tags out that would be great, but I couldn’t find it with a quick look at the source code.
Example: I have added the tag ‘test’ to my label, you will see that every album now has ‘test’ in the tags.

I think cover art is a great idea to automate, if there’s no other art on a release. People can vote on it anyway, and it’s not destructive or hard to tidy, imo.


In most cases tags on BC seems adequate. Few amount of wrong tag — not big deal, it will be tag with just one vote


Import Bandcamp tags for 689 releases. Devs on #metabrainz say i should give people time to manual check submissions. So, here is submissions:

Just looking through the lists, looking for inconsistencies, they look much better than I expected! Can’t spot anything that looks off.


First bunch of releases submitted to AB successfully! 182896 releases in 23 days.

Also submit tags for remaining 443 releases and create ticket for MBBOT about 404 BC urls.

Next step is finish FLAC bandcamp downloading

P.S. please someone look at BC links relationships table. If parser correctly detect features provided by the BC page it’s another bunch of information we can use to easily improve MB database

I would honestly just submit all of them, as-is. If you’re making a separate account to “house” the tags (as you talked about on IRC) then it’ll just be a mix of genres and regular folksonomy tags. If people disagree with some (e.g., similar with @aerozol’s note), they’re free to downvote them. Even the non-genre tags may be interesting.


I don’t think it’s good idea, to many trash in tags on Bandcamp: locations and different genre typo mostly. 7344 unique tags. But if community decide so, i can easily submit this tags also.

By the way: submit another 10k tags and rewrite my script so it can automatically download FLACs from BC. Now i download BC pages (done 5000 of 228000) and wait for fresh AB backups to continue submitting


“One person’s trash is another one’s treasure.” Just because you don’t find it useful or can see how it would be useful to others, doesn’t mean it isn’t. Tons of “trash tags” in MB already, and I’d reckon that all of these BC ones are far more useful than the worst of the existing MB ones. :slight_smile:


List of non-submitted tags by popularity. Most treasure tags in the end of list.
There is tags that should be genre tags (i can’t understand why “rap” is not a genre) or alias of existing genres. But also there i perls like “music”, “image”, “name your price”, and cryptic unicode sequences.
This data definitely can be used somehow, but i not sure that push them to MB as-is is good idea


After having a browse of the list (thanks!!) I’ve changed my stance a bit - even a lot of the nonsense tags are interesting and I wouldn’t mind seeing them on mb!

My favs are: casual flatulence, monobrow, very low energy musical whimsy, non-experimental, fart noises, my parents favorite music, feel bad music

Quite a few typos but no biggie.


Tested FLAC downloading. Work slow, 40 releases per hour. Also i can’t download 1/3 of “download for free” by my script because BC want wend me link by email (example)


There is 3700 releases with BC links like or instead of /album/… or /track/…
Such links may be non correct or non robust. Now release editor not allow to add such links, but old links steel in database. Should we do something with this? I think autoedit here not the best idea.

Ran new version of tag submitter, now it submit all tags.

Also lossless AB submission in process, will took 2 or 3 weeks. Now i work only with album BC pages, but script ready to work single tracks pages (


Submit 206629 tags and found bug with non-latin chars. Now need to resubmit it all


Agree to add all the tags since as described @Freso that’s the nature of those systems and they are designed to handle those. The only issue may be agressive terms to filter but guess Bandcamp already have a system for that (TBC).

We had:
“rock & roll”
rock roll
rock & roll
rock& roll
rock and roll
rock ‘n roll
rock ‘n roll.
rock ‘n’ roll
rock ’n’ roll
rock n roll
rock n’roll
rock n’ roll
rock’n roll
rock’n’ roll
and some amount things like “rock; hard rock; heavy metal; guitar; rock and roll” (it’s one tag).
I think we need some tags clean up


… and also a hierarchy, to allow queries on root genres without the need to list the whole “family”

Relevant tickets:

I thought there was a ticket for this but the closest I could find was this one:

Anyway give some of those a vote :relaxed:
