    this is how last fm works. other bands are already calle fire flies and the fire flies. The only way to do this by last fm is use national tags like The Fireflies (DK). Thats what they should do. Mind you that does not solve when two bands from the same country shares name but thats much rarer. There seem to be two ways of sorting the bands, a chronoligical one and a popularity one. the last solution is the one i would favour

    This is really weird.. I think there are more than one group named the Fireflies that have been mixed together... The Danish group the Fireflies are from 2010 - they are a country pop rock group and their first single is song number 1 in the playlist "It's Useless"... please can someone correct this.. I don't want the girls to be mixed with some oldies.. thanks :)

    Surprise! This is not the original group The Fireflies - formed in 1957 with a hit in 1959 You Were Mine. Could we consider altering the name here to something like The Fireflies (Belgium) in the interest of good musicology? ---- http://tinyurl.com/ychocu
