  2. Metallica sues Tribute Band..

    It was their overzealous attorney that did it without the band's (or their management's) knowledge. They've fired the attorney, apologized to the tribute band, and given them full permission to use their logo: http://www.metalinjection.net/latest-news/yes/metallica-cancel-cease-blame-attorney-for-mixup

  13. 5 Seconds of Summer's New Song

    What kills me (and makes me weep for the future of our planet) is the lack of word definition comprehension among our young people. If I see one more comment defending this blatant (and lawsuit ready, as a melody progression is exactly what you can't steal) rip-off by stating that it's just a "sample" of HLTW, I'm going to f***ing scream! Kids these days apparently think that a "sample" is copying the way a song sounds, as opposed to actually using a clip from the original song, which is, of course, what sampling is. So, either brain-dead youngsters really do think that sampling means "sounding like", or they think that a bit of the original HLTW recording was actually used in this joke of a song (something that anyone with even half a discerning ear can tell is not true). I can't believe this hasn't generated more discussion on Duran forums. I can only hope the band become aware of it soon, as they stand to make a nice little payday when they are able to force this joke of a group to add them as co-writers on their empty little piece of autotuned crap, which of course will sell a ton. My perfect world result would be a "cease and desist" demand, saying that Duran want the song pulled, but I don't even know if that's something they could legally demand, and I'm sure they'll go for the easy revenue of just getting a co-writing credit.
