I'm a learning English language as a hobby and I hope you will provide me your valuable time to answer my question.
I'm confuse over proper to-be verb in following sentence.
The Eagles ___ [is, are] my favorite rock band.
I mused and wrote is as answer, but my Sir later told me that it should be are. "Eagles" is a name of the band and it should be singular, isn't it?
Can you please explain me, why it is are and not is?
P.S. Band do contain many members, but it is a single band. That was the reasoning while answering.
