    Is there a way to do this? I have a ton of music on my phone, and am really tired of wading through all the album art in the photo gallery. Suggestions?

    "Album art", eh? :D If you name it "cockpics" then Android knows to hide it automagically.

    Add a blank file called ".nomedia" to the folder.

    That does hide the album art, but then the music files don't show up in any of my music players either.

    if the artwork isn't embedded into each individual song file, the artwork file should be titled folder.jpg

    also, make sure it's in your device's music folder
