All lowercase is correct, see the wikipedia page.

pza: I see nothing on the wikipedia page to say that it should be lower case. In fact, the wikipedia page suggests their name is Capitalised. On their official web site, they are either referred to capitalised or in FULL CAPITALS. Where did this all lower case come from?

J9: I am capitalizing back the name until this is PROVEN wrong.

Nyght: Actually, they used to use all lower case and it seems as if they've now chosen to go to all caps. I'll shift it to all caps. (just look at albums, if you question why the "history" of name changes)

Matchbox Twenty (originally spelled officially, and still sometimes known as Matchbox 20) is an American rock band, formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995. The group currently comprises Rob Thomas (lead vocals, piano), Brian Yale (bass guitar), Paul Doucette (drums, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Kyle Cook (lead guitar, backing vocals), touring guitarist and keyboardist Matt Beck, and touring drummer Stacy Jones.

Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified 12× Platinum (diamond) in the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× platinum in the United States. Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was certified double platinum in the United States. However, it was not as successful as the previous two albums, despite its singles receiving significant airplay. Director Bill Draheim documented the band throughout the process while making "More Than You Think You Are". The documentary "Theresville" was an online extra.

The band then went on hiatus in 2004, with rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor leaving the band in 2005 after performing on the first three studio albums. As a result, Paul Doucette took over rhythm guitar, and the band reunited and released a compilation album, Exile on Mainstream, in 2007, which was certified gold in the United States. After the release, former Push Stars drummer Ryan MacMillan filled Doucette's vacated drum spot. During this period, Rob Thomas embarked on a successful solo career. Matchbox Twenty then took another hiatus, but reunited again in 2010. The band released North, their fourth album, on September 4, 2012 which made its debut at number one on the Billboard 200.
