Buzzcocks is the name of the band not The Buzzcocks. (like Cream, to whom all factacular references are correct).

UK Band origins, Vocalists, Songs about Cars, Songs about You, Albums of the 1970s all have unneeded Thes.

I have changed most of them. I have left a few where it makes grammatical sense to leave it but changed it from The to the.

Thank you very much but......the The still has a capital T and anyway in my view is redundant (not grammatical) perhaps Cream was not a good example. Buzzcocks is the name of the band and needs no the or The. Here's another e.g. he is guitarist in The Cold Play or the Cold Play are on TV tonight, Cold Play are just Cold Play (no article) ,same principle for Buzzcocks. Thank goodness we're not discussing The The. (as opposed to the The).

I'm generation Buzzcocks rather than generation Coldplay. From now on I will ascribe all mistakes to either age or a punk attitude, although now I write that, I realise it's the truth anyway.

Ok, have removed the 'the' although I think the reason it sounds odd to me is that most bands with a plural name have 'the' at the start.
