    I'm not sure if this one has been mentioned before:
    Mortiferia needs to be flagged as the valid / correct artist name.
    It's now been incorrectly directed to another artist which has nothing to do with Mortiferia which is very annoying.

    Freedom is Music, Music is Life!
  • Another not sure if it has been mentioned one but Ricky James was a British rock n roll singer in the 1950s and should not be correcting to the totally unconnected Rick James.


  • A track from the soundtrack The Ghost and the Darkness by Jerry Goldsmith is wrongly corrected.
    The track is Remingron's Death, it should be "Remington's Death"

    Source: Discogs

    If the naming is based on Musicbrainz, they got it wrong too.

  • Sorry I posted this in the wrong thread. Its been a while.

    The artist The Spears keeps getting redirected to Brittany Spears which is entirely unnecessary and must be being done as a joke.

  • Creem, hardcore band from Brooklyn is wrongly corrected to Cream

    The Breakout, a hardcore band from NJ is wrongly corrected to Breakout

    INCORRECT: Wasting Yime
    CORRECT: Wasting Time


    Bump. I think the voting cache regarding this track got purged somehow. In any case, the Thoughts album is now in the Musicbrainz database, so it shouldn’t take much to fix this.

  • "John Cale – Stainless Steel Gamelan" is auto-incorrected to "John Cale – Stainless Steel Gamalan"

  • INCORRECT: 1. No bounds
    CORRECT: No Bounds

    INCORRECT: Cremaor
    CORRECT: Cremator

    How does this kind of thing keep happening?

  • Incorrect auto-correction: Los Banditos is wrongly auto-corrected from the actual, correct artist Los Bandidos.

    I have provided evidence and references in the wiki sources and with the artist image.

    Thanks! :)

    should be Andrea Buffa, with a space.

  • Metroid Metal autocorrects to Stemage (Metroid Metal's artist page automatically redirects to Stemage), when the two are totally different projects by the same man. Metroid Metal is his Metroid cover project, Stemage is his original works. http://www.metroidmetal.com/ The official site puts the two under different names.

    Most of Minibosses' works corrects to The Minibosses. This is incorrect, the name has no "The", such as said by their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/minibossess

    EDIT: Thanks to m6wg4bxw, it turns out I was wrong on the Metroid Metal part. Minibosses' issue still stands though.

    You'll probably get better results by posting to the following threads, since they are followed by last.fm admins (I don't think any admins follow this forum):

    For artists/titles where the only problem is in the capitalization, post them in Last.fm changes the case of tags (incorrectly).

    For those that are incorrect other than in the capitalization, post them in Incorrect autocorrect.

    The industrial rock band 2wo is re-directed to the page Two. Even though the former spelling is correct.
