Even before CBS’ hit reality TV series Rock Star Supernova came to an end, the band received their very first, of which there are sure to be many, lawsuit. A band from California known as Supernova, known only for their song “Chewbacca”, which was featured in Clerks, filed the lawsuit against Supernova to prevent the band from taking their name, and rightfully so, they won.
This put Rock Star Supernova winner Lukas Rossi in a bit of a hard spot as he joined Tommy Lee, Jason Newstead and Gilby Clarke in a then nameless band. However, it didn’t take long for the lightbulbs to go off and the band decided to go on using the name Rock Star: Supernova, how original. I am surprised and not surprised all at once at the fact that CBS would let them use said name, as surely CBS has a copyright and TM on the Rock Star: Supernova, or at the very least, Rock Star tag.
According to Reuters, Rock Star: Supernova is planning to drop their debut album, featuring Canadian contest winner Lukas Rossi, on November 21st. In the hopes of pumping the album up a little more the band has decided to release two singles already, “It’s All Love” and “Be Yourself & 5 Other Cliches” on Yahoo! Music.
Rest assured, I will be about as likely to pick up a copy of this, what is certain to be steaming pile of crap, of an album as I am going to pick up Ryan Star’s new album.
