stupid question (m83)

m83.

it annoys me when bands have multi-digit numbers in their names, i worry about saying them wrong. but how the hell do i say this band's name?

is it m-eight-three? m-eighty-three? which one?

i'm an idiot.

I personally say it as "M eight three", but I've never thought about it before. Strange.

Anyway, I saw "eight three" even if it's wrong. My husband says "eighty three" because he thinks it's a motorway.
