According to VGMPF, Yamashita and Satoe did not collaborate on the music together. So anything credited with both their names is unknown. In this case, the first track Underground (Naming BGM).

In that case, why not say the specific composer of the first track is unknown? Seems a lot less confusing than crediting both for it even though they didn't really both compose it.

I've started to really dislike the convention of listing all a game's composers for tracks where specific composition is unknown, since it's impossible to differentiate between that and pieces which are legitimately co-composed by multiple people.

Well, we know one of them did it.

Feel free to change it if you like.

We definitely don't want to say that they both composed it, when it's likely to be either one or the other. I've edited the notes to reflect this. We should follow this example, and we definitely shouldn't link composers when they are unknown.
