Unclear on how to List Members.

Hello All, a bit lost on this exercise. I've watched all the videos multiple times through and can't figure out how to combine the methods. Any hints would be helpful. Thanks

groups.py
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 artist in musical_groups:
    artist = ", ".join(musical_groups)
    print(artist)

The "musical_groups" list is the master list of lists. The one you want to join to get the members is "artist".

And you can print it out directly without the variable assignment if you want.

No matter how I try it I'm getting the: AttributeError: 'list' object has no attribute 'join' message.

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 artist in musical_groups:  
    print(artist.join(musical_groups) + ", ")

Lists don't have a "join" method, strings do. Your "join" syntax was closer the first time, you just had the wrong argument.

What I was suggesting was instead of :point_right:", ".join(musical_groups)
...you might write this instead :point_right:", ".join(artist)
