Hello. I was looking at this page and in my opinion typing Rancid should redirect to the page Rancid (band). There are currently four other entries in the disambiguation page. There is an article about a Swedish film that is currently a stub. The one about the software (RANCID) is poorly developed while the two other articles actually wear different names : the process of rancidification and the magazine Rancid News, that was called Last Hour in its later form. None of them seem as notable as the band, and all four articles are either stubs or poorly developped compared to the band's article. What do you think ?

This is one of the pages on my regular list of disambiguation cleanup targets. It doesn't draw a lot of links, but of the ones that do come up, I'd say about 2/3 are for the band, and 1/3 are for the biological process (for which the band is named, of course), with the other senses never coming up. bd2412 T 18:35, 17 January 2011 (UTC)
The fact that rancidification isn't called "Rancid" doesn't affect whether that is an important use of "Rancid" - see HP as an example. I think the current dab page is the best situation here. PamD (talk) 10:07, 23 January 2011 (UTC)
I just had a look a the article statistics here. The number of views in January 2011 are as follows:
  • Rancid (band): 38598
  • Rancidification: 6629
  • Rancid (1993 album): 3560
  • Rancid (2000 album): 3346
  • Rancid (EP): 817
  • RANCID (software): 510
  • Rancid (film): 451
  • Rancid News + Last Hours: 132
I think it says it all. As BD2412 said, most of people who come here in fact wanted to go to the band's page. Let's be logical. Maimai009 (talk) 16:35, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
