Question for TQC Grammar Nazis

I've been noticing more plural treatment of singular nouns such as "The band have arrived in the studio". OK, I get "the band" is made up of multiple members, but the band is one unit. Should I start saying things such as "The loaf of bread have become moldy, so I threw them away" because the loaf is pre-sliced?
