Program to clear MP3 tags in one command

Hi! Which program would you suggest to delete all MP3 tags of MP3 files in a specified directory with one command? Like "exiv2 rm *" for images, but I need one for MP3 files.

I've used the 'id3' program like this to delete all tags:
id3 -d *mp3
The source can be downloaded from here:

On openSUSE 13.1 it's simular:
id3v2 -D *.mp3

Hi. You can try (in console mode):

mp3info -d *mp3

By the way, is really useful the interactive mode (console):

mp3info -i *.mp3

Or you have a lot of options (all of them in console mode):
Have a nice day.
