Not that myth is capable of multiple artists per song or multipel
genres per song...at least as far as I can see.  "Tool & BT" is not AN
artist, it's two....and it's not like there isn't a ton of music out
there that has artists collaborating on music.

Same thing with Genres.  Nine inch nails is not *just* industrial. 
it's also Hard Alternative, Rock, and multiple others.  Any solution
that rests on a single genre is flawed IMHO
