Two comments:

What do the ASCAP registrations usually signify?

Also, where is Iggy on Harlem? Is he going uncredited now?

I'm never really sure how having 5+ people listed as a composer for a song is supposed to work in actuality. It seems to be a modern phenonium, and presumably more of a business decision to slice up the publishing royalties? Surely just one - or maybe two - people came up with the basic chord structure/riffs?

I don’t know why so many people are listed as songwriters, how can that work.

Maybe they are crediting the people who write keyboard or guitar and bass lines. For me the song is created by those who write the chords, lyrics and vocal melody.

IIRC, the same thing was done right before Dog was released. Once the album was released it was simply Jesse, Gustavo, and Mando listed as songwriting partners in the liner notes/booklet -- the other people's names (Daly, etc.) were dropped from the credits.
