Biography

Mars Volta is a European electronic act, responsible for songs such as “Bach Song”. This band is, understandably, often confused with The Mars Volta ( modern band featuring former members of At the Drive-In). In fact, these two bands are entirely different and unrelated.
But, in fact, all of the top 10 songs are from The Mars Volta, most likely because of the incorrect tagging of most mp3s.

    ...and last.fm "helpfully" autocorrected it when I listened to it. But... it's not a TMV song!! Why can't you turn autocorrect off only for certain songs?

    I was tired of this confusion. So, I've fixed the biography, but infortunately, I don't know much more about the band Mars Volta than what I've written. Please, if somebody knows well Mars Volta, re-write this biography.

    Listening to a Mars Volta should scrobble as like three tracks, just to keep things even.

    There is a lot of confusion about what songs are actually The Mars Volta and which aren't. Me, Intial, Bunel Home, Bach Song, Corelli Theme, and Things' Fear are by an Italian electronica band called Mars Volta (without the 'the').

    I just realized that my new Zune had changed my "The Mars Volta" tags to simply "Mars Volta", giving me almost 90 plays of TMV that show up here as Mars Volta plays... So I'm going through and deleting all of my incorrect plays. If anyone else here Scrobbles Zune play counts, make sure it hasn't dropped "The" in your case, too.
