Music listed under artist with similar name

Not sure how to get this fixed but I found an album from an artist that is actually listed under the wrong artist name. The album 'Underworld" buy "Vamps" which is a japanese band is being listed under the band "the vamps" which is a British band. Its kinda annoying as I like this album and it introduced me to the band but I can't play the album or the songs from the album on auto play without changing genre completely from hard rock to pop because it attributes it to the wrong artist.

Not sure where to report this.  Tried adding punk band S.O.D. to my playlist.  Kept taking me to some Latin sounding hip hop band with the same name.  Under that band was the punk band's music.  Funny and confusing.

@AdamPandora I know I'm late to the conversation here.  You have told  other users that you have forwarded the info to "the people who take care of the collection."  Can users like me report these issues directly or is the Pandora Community the best place?

I found the band "Brotherly" has at least on album listed from a different artist with the same name.  One band is a jazz soul funk band and the other sounds like contemporary christian rock. 

Here is another streaming service that lists two separate artists:

The album "Left Coast Blues" is being attributed to the wrong "The Insomniacs" artist.

https://www.pandora.com/artist/the-insomniacs/left-coast-blues/AL3qnnmhZvVxkl6

It needs to be attributed to "The Insomniacs (Blues)"

Please and thank you.

There is a new album for "Fever" that is showing up under the "Fever 333". Is there any way that it can be moved to the correct artist?

I've got a similar error with the band TikTak. Another band or album with the same name (example: https://www.pandora.com/artist/tiktak/vazgecme/vazgecme/TRXkPwhc3z972gc?part=ug-desktop&corr=4879934... is showing up there as well.

How do you submit a needed correction or modification? I recently had two bands come up with the same name as bands on my playlist but they are NOT the same band or even genre. It happened with the rock bands Hurricane and Lynch Mob. Apparently there are other bands using these names. I took screen shots but there doesn't seem to be a way to upload. I can't find an email to contact support. 

The songs that came up under the Lynch Mob name were Devil's Lettuce & Cartel.

The song for that came up under the Hurricane name was Hier bei uns. 

This is on my 80's metal playlist and these songs are not 80's metal. Is there some way the system can separate these bands as being different entities? I don't want to "thumb down" and lose the real Lynch Mob and Hurricane from my playlist. 

Thanks!

Pandora has their Cobis mixed up. This album is by a different Cobi, not the one at the bottom of the page. Another one of this Cobi's songs played earlier and I thought the Cobi I seeded my station with took an acid trip or something 🤣

Anyone else notice that the collection for Jeremy Jordan combines two different artists? The Broadway singer and a 90's pop singer?

Matanza is a Brazilian rock band from a label called Deckdisc and also an indie band (as far as I could figured out) from a label called Nomade Records from Chile.  
Then as the system mixed them up, I keep getting the Chilean bands' songs into my playlists that has the Brazilian band in.
And I could not find a way to let Pandora know - AND FIX - the issue!
