Tagtool allows you to perform mass ID3 tag cleaning operations.
Mass clean metadata of downloaded MP3 songs.
I wrote the initial version as a simple script that just worked. This tool later became an exercise in command line application design as I’d never done it before. It uses docopt (along with some hackery to allow sub-commands)
pip install tagtool
You could also use `pipsi <https://github.com/mitsuhiko/pipsi>`__ to install.

Tagfix is a script that uses the available tagtool commands as building blocks and performs multiple cleaning operation on files in one pass. If you download music from sites like songspk, djmaza etc. then this script is for you. It removes all mention of these websites from the tags.
