Definite articles seem to be applied semi-randomly in the database. At no.2, by the same token, it should surely be 'The Crystals', although here it's just listed as 'Crystals'. [The] Fourmost and [The] Caravelles suffer the same thing on this page.

The Guinness British Hit Singles books perhaps sensibly used to sidestep the issue by removing all definite articles from artist names, except in very rare cases such as The The, who would otherwise have been listed as the rather gnomic 'The'.
