“Dear Mr. Jones” by COUNTING CROWS Vs. XTC

XTC - Counting Crows
It’s always confounding as to whether or not you use “the” in front of a band’s name. That is the case for Counting Crows, XTC, Carpenters, Talking Heads, Eagles, Lemonheads (but not always), Pixies, Buzzcocks, and countless other pretentious bands. I’m not saying pretentious like it’s a bad thing, unless you think attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed is a bad thing.
