Else -> UNKNOWN.
An experienced owner is telling what happens if the files are untagged and you try to make a playlist. If MediaMonkey isn't tagging the files they'll continue to show as UNKNOWN.

My experience with MM says it should tag the files but if the results you get is "Sometimes it does sometimes it doesnt" then you can either check you settings in MM or try the MP3Tag. If neither one of those work I'd post a detailed description of what you're trying. What I see here really doesn't give enough information for anyone to spot what the problem might be.

One of the other things you may want to try is using files that aren't grabbed of the 'net and then converted. If that works then it's probably that program that's producing some type of non-standard file or tags.
