Question: According to wikipedia, while you were developing winamp, in 1998 winamp expended the id3v1 tag list by about 100 tags. these include some frankly bizarre genre names. i was particularly wondering about the name "Negerpunk", do you know who came up with that genre name and what is it supposed to be? google does not seem to know.

    I don't have a specific memory of that, but I do remember extending the id3v1 list (side note: not a polite thing to do, as id3v1 wasn't mine to extend) -- I remember getting a big list of requests from IRC (probably efnet #mpeg3 but guessing there), and adding a few of my own (or one at least, Primus). Whether it was my inattention to detail or naivete of youth, I'm sorry that something offensive ended up in there. :(
