Group for those that believe that Last FM needs to do something to seperate bands of the same name. I for one am tired of getting pictures of bands i wouldn't in my life listen to next to my top...

    I have a band called Led Zeppelin and I totally agree with this group. Having the same trouble with my band.

    Hi folks, as you probably know there are also other groups trying to achieve exactly the same thing - getting separate pages for artists with identical names. Have you ever got a positive reply from LastFM or is all this collecting of artist names completely in vain ? Just wondering. The other groups I'm referring to are: http://www.lastfm.de/group/We+want+separate+pages+for+artists+with+the+same+name! and http://www.lastfm.de/group/We+want+separate+pages+for+artists+with+the+same+name%2C+II Yep, they had to open a second group due to the many artists affected :-(

    @ibemonty2000 Haha, well you can ditch the metal band from that, it's supposed to be Ария, not Aria. :P

    Last.fm doesnt understand how to do things like that people. They really do not understand how simple it would be, because they dont understand the simple.

    I wish the site would fix incorrect song names more, but differentiating same-name bands would be a good starting point, too.

    This thing is the most annoying issue of Last.fm! I sincerely have no hope that they will find a solution...

    @ibemonty2000 - Damn , imagine some J pop singer and a Paramore style band being associated with the metal one!

    RateYourMusic separates them, it might be no big deal...

    My duplicate artist today is "Aria", a Paramore-like band. Apparently theres a metal band and some Jap-pop girl singer with the same names. Weak.

    you guys really have no idea how hard it would be to do this, it would make tagging even more of a mess than it already is
