Metadata Definition - What is Metadata?

Metadata in MP3's come in the form of tags. These tags might have data related to the artist name or the song name. These tags actually are not part of the MP3 standard but instead are added to the beginning or end of an mp3 file. The program interpreting the data might use the tags for viewing or else might just ignore the tags.
