History:Versus Style

Status: This Page is Glorious History!

The content of this page either is bit-rotted, or has lost its reason to exist due to some new features having been implemented in MusicBrainz, or maybe just described something that never made it in (or made it in a different way), or possibly is meant to store information and memories about our Glorious Past. We still keep this page to honor the brave editors who, during the prehistoric times (prehistoric for you, newcomer!), struggled hard to build a better present and dreamed of an even better future. We also keep it for archival purposes because possibly it still contains crazy thoughts and ideas that may be reused someday. If you're not into looking at either the past or the future, you should just disregard entirely this page content and look for an up to date documentation page elsewhere.

This is the style for tracks with artists credited as Artist A vs. Artist B.

The first thing to note is that Versus Means Different Things; and you must determine what kind of "versus" it is.

  1. In the first case, where it is simply two artists collaborating, credit as a collaboration using Collaboration Relationship Type form of Advanced Relationships (i.e. in accordance with Featuring Artist Style).
  2. In the second case, where it means one artist is remixing another, use the original artist as the artist name, and put the remixer into the track title as you would with other remixes, following the Remix Style.
  3. In the third case, where the track is a mash-up, use the mash-up artist as the artist name, and put the two "versus" artist titles into the track name like so: "Track Title (Artist A vs. Artist B)".
