For those unaware, Riot was a hard rock band popular in the '70s and ‘80s. They reformed under the name Riot V in 2013 after principal member Mark Reale died. However, they are still referred to as Riot in some markets. There has been some on-and-off debate about whether we should store the band’s name as Riot or Riot V; it’s come up again because of a currently open edit.
The current precedent/consensus states to use bands’ current names as artist names, but the facts of this particular case make the application of said precedent seem questionable.
EDIT: According to Wikipedia, the reason for the divide is due to a contractual issue with the band’s Japanese distributor. I’ll still leave this thread open, in case anyone has any better ideas/objections.
