And then there's the question: if one is organizing titles in alphabetical order, should a title starting with "The" be listed under 'T', or the first letter of the next word? (Most people assume the latter.)

to:

* Ever wonder why the on-screen title for ''Film/SchoolOfRock'' was originally is '''''The''''' ''School Of Rock''? It's because the filmmakers decided to change the name long after the title sequence is shot and couldn't go back and re-shoot it. Adding to the minor confusion, the InUniverse band is called "The ''The'' School of Rock," as seen in its title sequence.Rock.

* While Music/TheBeachBoys are always referred to with a "the" these days, their first two singles, "Surfin'"/"Luau" and "Surfin' Safari"/"409", identified the band as simply "Beach Boys". Strangely enough, while the third single, "Ten Little Indians"/"Country Fair", used "The Beach Boys", the fourth single, "Surfin' U.S.A."/"Little Deuce Coupe", went back to "Beach Boys". Subsequent singles and all albums used "The Beach Boys".
