It seems like band names are both used as singular AND plural.
For example, I've seen both of the followings:
"Green Day is ....."
"Green Day are ....."
What would be correct?
Also what about band names that are plural (i.e. Pet Shop Boys)?
Thanks in advance.
Like most collective nouns, band names can be followed by a singular or plural form of the verb, in BrE at least. The plural form is more common, especially with bands.
When the name has a specifically plural form, as in Pet Shop Boys, then the singlar form of the verb is not used.
