    awno why it insists on correcting Priests scrobbles to this page but I believe the ways to fix it are this: -Go to individual tracks listed on this page that ARE songs from the DC post punk Priests and suggest a correction, then say that the name "Priests" is correct rather than "The Priests" -Go to this page: http://www.last.fm/music/+noredirect/Priests and in the top it should say "Did you mean: The Priests" on the left and "Flag This" on the right--hit "Flag This" and vote for "Priests is correct."

    There's a mistake here. The catholic are "The Priest" and they were a classical music group. The rock band is just "Priest".

    There's a rumour that they're going to collaborate with Judas Priest and Maxi Priest for a cover of My Lovely Horse.

    The Catholic Priest's debut album is doing pretty well. No.1 on the Irish album charts(?) I'm an atheist, but I can appreciate them musically. My mum's car is like a promo vehicle for them.
