iTunes: find all missing / broken / dead tracks #

That is, those which should display an exclamation point:
  1. Make a playlist called "Good" and drag your entire library into it.
  2. Make a smart playlist called "Bad" with two rules: "Playlist is Music" and "Playlist is not Good" (uncheck the "Live updating" option).
  3. "Bad" will display all dead tracks.
  4. Delete if desired: Edit > Select All > Option+Del (Mac) or Shift+Del (Win).
