    Wow, I'm an idiot. I used a program called Tag&Rename, and clicked the wrong button. The end result was 300+ songs renamed to "- (1)", "- (2)", etc. Is there any way to undo this? I don't want to system restore, as I did something right before it, that took me quite a while to do.

    Also, these songs have no tags in them. I was trying to add them, but as you can tell, I failed miserably.

    Sorry to say it, but I think you're screwed.

    Look up MusicBrainz. There are apps that automatically go through and apply correct tags for every song. They take the song's individual fingerprint and matches it up against their database.

    LOL That is hillarious.

    I know a program called Foobar2000, that i think can fix it.

    All these programs that "fix" your iTunes, work, but not for everything. Make sure you double check everything it wants to rename things to, sometimes, they're completely off.
