I've noticed on the forum that when people refer to a band, they usually type "Iron Maiden ARE amazing"

Wouldn't it actually be "Iron Maiden IS amazing", because the name refers to a band, which is an entity made up of people? That's like saying "The U.S. military are stationed in Iraq". It just doesn't sound right for some reason, does anyone have an explanation for this?
