    Problem, in my music app with artists- say for example: Angels & Airwaves, there's also a second: Angels And Airwaves.. the issue is in my iTunes library they are spelled correctly and under one Artists spelling, the same for showing up on my iPhone when it's synced. Before I updated my 4 to the iOS5 i would just right click on the song, get info and change, etc etc. the problem is if it's spelled correctly on my iTunes how can i fix the song on my phone? I'm extremely OCD and this is ANNOYING!! :eek:

    I'm pretty sure you would have to change it on your computer.
    Are the 'Artist' and 'Album Artist' set up exactly the same in iTunes?

    They are, the exact same- which is why I'm incredibly confused and irritated. I've tried everything I can think of.

    I would, in iTunes, select all Angels and Airwaves songs and hit Cmd+I. Then in the Album Artist field type in 'Angels and Airwaves' or 'Angels & Airwaves' and hit enter. Then resync. Check your device after syncing and see if that helps.
