The following post is copied from User talk:Mudwater#Template:The Band:

I removed the songs because it seems templates for most bands don't include these unless they're dealing with hit singles. And of course in The Band's case, they had one, possibly two genuine hit singles. Beyond that, any songs listed would be kind of a POV thing, so I don't think it's a good idea to include any at all.

Thanks for explaining. Like I said in my edit summary, I do think the template is better with the songs, even if a lot of other bands' navboxes don't have links to songs. I really don't see how including them is POV at all, the template can just include links to any Band songs that have their own articles. Those are, of course, very related to the subject of the Band. One could argue that the originals are more relevant than the covers, but I think it's better to leave the covers in too. Mudwater (Talk) 23:38, 26 April 2012 (UTC)
