Sunshine / At the Drive-In vs At the Drive-In / Sunshine[edit]

Should this be titled Sunshine / At the Drive-In or At the Drive-In / Sunshine? Please discuss and arrive at consensus here before moving back and forth. I'm going to remove the speedy tag for now because it's been there for a day with no one willing to do it. I don't know which is correct and "per MOSALBUM" doesn't explain it.

The album is a split album with no official title (it doesn't even have cover art). The de facto title is simply the names of the two artists who split the album. The naming convention for untitled splits per MOS:ALBUM is to title the article by the name of the artists, separated by a slash, starting with the artist who either appears on the A-side or has their tracks first on the CD. Sunshine's tracks comprise the first ⅔ of this split CD, therefore the proper article title is Sunshine / At the Drive-in. It was moved under the claim that more sources refer to it the other way around, but that's merely because At the Drive-In is the more famous of the two artists. The CD has no actual title, and the article should be titled according to the same convention as all other split albums. --IllaZilla (talk) 06:32, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
