It's a little confusing when artists use a name that sounds like a group rather than one person (like Skrillex, The Ready Set, Owl City, etc.) amirite?

How does Skrillex sound like a group?

Cuz it doesn't really sound like one person.

Well me and a few others thought that Skrillex was more than one person since it isn't uncommon for EDM artists to be pairs or groups. Televisor is a duo and Rundfunk is a person. It's hard to tell honestly.

@notmuchnotmuch I have no idea what you're talking about. But alright!

Just examples... you don't have to know Televisor or Rundfunk. Electronic Dance Music has odd artist names that don't always tell you if it's a group, duo or just one person.

Or when they do the opposite. Like Travis Porter.

I hate it when the band name is just the lead singers name

The Ready Set

@Skr3wBall I said that though

Oops. I guess Skrillex and Owl City were the only two I remembered reading. I made an amirite post about The Ready Set, and I didn't know what to call him, so I just called him a group, since I figured no one would notice.

Marina and the Diamonds. I seriously thought she had background singers call 'the Diamonds'!

Or when groups sound like just one person. Ex: Marilyn Manson.

@silvershadow6 That is one person.

No, it's not. Marilyn Manson is the nane of the band, Brian Warner is one person.

It's not a band; it's Brian's stage name.

Edit. Just looked it up, it's both Brian's stage name and the name of his band. We're both right h smilie
