    Did a full rescan. No joy.

    Try changing the title to Exclamation Marks. I know itĺs not ideal but it may be that !!!!!! Is glitching the scanner.

    Whether or not it's the length of the track/file that's causing the genre tag issue is interesting. I have an mp3 copy of There's a Riot Going On by Sly and the Family Stone. The title track is zero length, but is actually reported as 4 seconds on LMS. It it tagged with a genre, which seems to be picked up by LMS. The details of this file are:

    File Format: MP3
    Duration: 0:04
    Bitrate: 33kbps VBR (the album is 256k VBR)
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
    File Length: 257,153

    I've just taken an album from my spare music folder (Aztec Camera - Best of), re-tagged the first track's title and filename to "!!!!!!!", Windows has no problem with the filename, LMS has no problem with the genre (Alternative).

    !!!!!!! (from Billie Eilish album)

    OP says he can play the track. Therefore the filename isn't the issue.
    The remaining issue is the genre. Which must be in the tags. What tool
    did you use to edit the genre?

    I've already tried changing both the file name and the title.

    Both JRiver and iTunes.

    Last night I opened the file in Notepad and searched for "Rock/Pop." I couldn't find it. I then opened one of the other tracks and did find it. Which begs the question, where do JRiver and iTunes, which identify the genre of the first track as Rock/Pop, store this information?

    JRiver has worked for my 40,000+ tracks (about half of which are classical and require a lot of editing). I'm not going to change to a new system because of one track.

    Edit - just tried Windows File Explorer and Windows Media Player, both of which also identify the genre correctly.

    I would avoid more than one !-mark in the filename if the OS is Linux-based.
    Rather OT, but your example has nothing to do with file names, rather it's an issue of properly quoting special characters in the shell.
    All characters (except NULL) are allowed in file names on Linux file systems:
