| This guideline in a nutshell:|
Special Artist Pages should only be created if songs cannot be reasonably attributed to "real" artists.
The following lists are not complete, but should once they are fleshed out give a good idea on what is and what isn't a Special Purpose Artist in the LyricWiki sense. Note that MusicBrainz's tagging as "bogus artist" does not necessarily apply on LyricWiki.
- Long running TV shows with a varying cast of authors and performers, who wouldn't otherwise have artist pages on LyricWiki; e.g. Sesame Street, The Simpsons, Glee Cast or Whose Line Is It Anyway? Cast When do we use the "Cast" suffix?
These are NOT Special Purpose Artists
- One-off casts for musicals What else should be used here?
- TV shows where all songs are by the same performers and/or authors
