"Haters gonna hate". 

I stopped worrying about this kind of stuff long time ago. I've been in countless discussions about "why this artist rocks and why this other sucks", and with the time I realized that it's useless. You don't need an explanation for the music that you listen to. If you like it, it's ok. If you don't like it, it's ok too. I don't know who this guy is, but he's missing the fact that Scandal are 4 girls that play really well and make great shows, with a concept they created before entering in the showbiz.

If he needs to listen non-commercial music with high ideologic content, I will recommend Burzum, if he can handle it...

Mati is right, it's much better to not care about things like that.

Also I don't think this is really mean or anything, he was either looking for another band called like that or the soundtrack of the serie SCANDAL I suppose? It's not like he insulted our lovely band ^^

But yeah again, it's better to not care when you see all the stupid things people post on the internet sometimes.

I don't get how that person would think it's the "wrong SCANDAL." I mean, they were on the cover.

I haven't checked iTunes, but is this actually in the right place in iTunes? I wonder if that's what he/she was commenting on.

I know in Google's equivalent, they show a picture of the American band Scandal for our Scandal. It's really annoying. There's no way to change it even in your own library. Every time I play Scandal on my tablet, I have a giant picture of Patty Smyth staring at me.

WRONG SCANDAL? What does this mean.. I think the person who wrote it, doesn't understand it it's self :D

I just don't get how people can't like SCANDAL?! But If they don't like them.. It would be better to not talk and say it at all. -_-

It almost definitely means they expected this Scandal: http://www.pattysmythandscandal.com/

In the 80's they were very popular in the US, and they're still together and still tour. If you say the name "Scandal" to most Americans, this is the band they're going to think of. If the Japanese Scandal ever really made a big push in the US, I expect they'd probably have to differentiate themselves somehow, like Puffy AmiYumi and X Japan did (they were originally just Puffy and X, but there's already an American Puffy and X). Already I know in my Songkick (a mobile app that tracks concerts for artists you have stored in your music library), it mixes up Scandals and is always showing me US tour dates for the US Scandal with a picture of the Japanese Scandal. That's in addition to Google Play Music showing the US band for my Japanese Scandal songs, as I mentioned.

As a Japanese Scandal fan this is all really annoying, so I can totally understand an American Scandal fan being annoyed about the same thing. And to be fair, the American Scandal was here first and have never stopped being active. For their US releases (including in iTunes, on Amazon, Google Play, etc.), I think it would be helpful for Sony to differentiate the Japanese Scandal somehow.

The only way would be to alter the name for the US but I have a hard time imagine that to be honest... Seeing SCANDAL with another name officially would be so strange. I guess they could come up with some okay names but would still be weird. The first one that comes to mind would be "SCANDAL Girls", it's not special but would suit the US market =P

Also I doubt they really care about invading the US market sadly, while it's true they play overseas sometimes their company has probably no plan right now to push them internationally. It's a bit sad because from what I have read, SCANDAL a real international fan base!

Also in the end, I guess that even if both names are the same, the results come up if you do a search so it's unlikely Sony will change something.

Probably they will have to add something to the name to promote the band in the USA, BUT, they toured there once or twice, and there was no trouble, if I'm not wrong.

My best guess would be having them called SCANDAL4 if they were to have a large Western presence as spacecadet said.
This is just based on the fact that their vevo page (where SCANDAL officially releases music videos on YouTube) is youtube.com/scandal4vevo . Worth noting is that the scandal4 moniker is also used for their (now defunct) myspace page, official website, and blog.

The Scandal from the 80s is youtube.com/scandalvevo

That human can die though..


_________________________________________________________________________________________________
In the morning, let the sun give you enough warmth which my love fails to do. And at noon, let the wind carry my felicitations and bring it to you. With louder sounds, bury it more, until only our hearts can hear that song which plays only between the two of us. If possible, make the night darker until our emotions are radiant enough to be seen. 

This clock which ticks differently on the two of us, hasten its pace so that our paths may converge in the future. This clock which fills me with sorrow as it reminds of how impossible it is for me to even see you, hasten its pace so that my sorrows would be drowned. Let me sleep therefore, so that I could prepare for tomorrow, as I did today, in making these thoughts and aspirations materialize. So let me sleep then, so that your presence would give me hints in accomplishing these goals.
