This trope is about actual musical bands with some room for creative teams of people. Anything beyond that is pushing it. Cutting most of the non-examples for misuse in the real life section.

Do you think that maybe we could add to the trope description by including a passage of instrumental bands without vocalists. We can talk about the extent of how much the trope could be averted, depending on the type of instrumental bands. Do they even have any frontmen at all? I just feel like this could at be alluded to.
