I fixed it by clicking on my phone in the left menu of iTunes then selecting the Music menu at the top and unselecting Sync Music. It then wiped all the music off my phone. Then I reselected Sync Music and Synced the phone and it loaded all my music back on and everything works again. Hopefully it stays this way.
    this worked perfectly! thanks!

    Same problem with my 4S, the day after jailbreak I noticed certain songs would not play. It seemed to only affect purchased music from iTunes. I tried to sync with iTunes but that did not fix the issue, I did a full restore and re-synced everything back onto my phone and everything is fixed. I miss having the jailbreak on my phone but do not want to go through all this again. Hopefully there will be a more clear fix for this very common issue soon.

    If you have itunes match and some time you can fix this issue without having to restore or re-sync. Just turn on itunes match Settings>Music
    then set Show All Music to off. This will display only what has been downloaded to your phone. Then go into your Music app, sort by Artist and start swiping to delete. Repeat this for Albums/Songs if you have any that don't get out with the other deletions.
    Now, you should have 0 songs...
    go back into Settings>Music
    turn off iTunes Match, then turn it back on. Turn 'Show All Music' on
    go back into Music app; at this point it will start pulling your iTunes available songs. Download a song/album.

    Enjoy!
    This worked for me. Thanks a lot. HUGE help.

    Well, I did the same thing as Syl66 and got nothing. no music is showing up at all. I keep trying to sync but it seems to skip right over the tracks to add. Any other ideas?

    If anyone is still having trouble getting it to pull in your music from iTunes match, try turning on home sharing. For some reason, that seemed to trigger the sync. I don't know if it was just coincidence but it started syncing right after I turned it on.

    Did this work for 5.1.1? ALL my devices jailbroken with Absinthe are having this issue. My old 3GS is working fine though but I jailbroke that using sn0wbreeze.
