I have removed my son's death metal junk from my library but the devices still pick it up from the cloud. How do I delete songs from the cloud if they no longer appear in the host ITunes library? I have deleted the unwanted songs from the host PC which should have removed them from iTunes Match but when I synch my iPad mini to iTunes Match the files still appear and can be played on the iPad when I have access to the cloud thru WiFi. The songs are gone from the host PC but apparently are still in accessible to my other devices thru iTunes Match.

  • Do you use iTunes Match, or do you sync music from your computer to your iDevice? Would you be willing to edit your question with a few more details such as the device(s) that still have the songs, how they got there in the first place, etc. Commented May 26, 2013 at 16:35
  • Use iTunes Match with the original songs on a PC. I originally set up the iTunes Match with my son's old files still on the PC. I have since, deleted them but when I load to my iPad (thru Wifi connection) the old deleted files appear in the cloud.
