Here's a few hints:

  • the argument to "join" should be just a single list name
  • the list you'll want to join is the one for a single group, "musical" (not "musical_groups")
  • you only need to "print" the result of the join, not assign it
  • since you'll be printing inside the loop, you won't need any of the code after the loop

musical_groups = [ ["Ad Rock", "MCA", "Mike D."], ["John Lennon", "Paul McCartney", "Ringo Starr", "George Harrison"], ["Salt", "Peppa", "Spinderella"], ["Rivers Cuomo", "Patrick Wilson", "Brian Bell", "Scott Shriner"], ["Chuck D.", "Flavor Flav", "Professor Griff", "Khari Winn", "DJ Lord"], ["Axl Rose", "Slash", "Duff McKagan", "Steven Adler"], ["Run", "DMC", "Jam Master Jay"], ]

Your code here

for musical in musical_groups: if len(musical) == 3: print(",".join(musical))

After I fix the code why there still have errors? I think the output should be correct. Can you help me to check it?

Your "join" string has only a comma. The challenge wants "the members joined together with a ", " comma space"
