Is this for real? Where did they get the Idea for this suit?
Spike Lee?
What kind of damage is a Independant Canadian band doing to Metalica?

Erik Ashley...isn't that the guy that used to be NoSoul, that ran ScoopThis.com ?

I take solace in that picture of Lars that makes him look like a raving retard.

Harley-Davidson sued once to trademark the sound their bikes make. Wouldn't this fall under something similar?


Edit: I checked out his website ( www.erikashley.com )and, yes, it is.

Heh....I probably should leave this out there unmentioned, since anything that makes Metallica look like pricks is a good thing, but go to 411, find this article, and see what part of the site it links you to. I'll give you a hint, it involves the words This! and Scoop. ;)

Another good website-altering job by Erik Ashley.
And quite frankly, isn't it sad that Metallica are such weaselly bastards that this ridiculous story has an air of plausibility to it? It's like the "Asterisk" feature at fametracker.com

and ScoopThis.com "Because if it's on the net, it's got to be true" (ie, this is a parody.)

That is what is at the bottom of the page from the link. It had me fooled at first.

Edit: Also, if you click on the link for Metallica's official statement. That site is also copyright Scoop This!.com

I can't believe anyone would think this is a decent parody. Everybody knows that all shitty Metallica stories on MTVNews.com are written by Jon Wiederhorn.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

It's probably just a tad too late for that.

This news I actually believed at first with many others and pissed me off a little, considering I just saw Metallica and they pulled off a GREAT live show (starting the show with Battery, then an extra-long version of Master of Puppets would make any metal fan happy), and I figured afterwards, "Maybe the old Metallica is coming back around finally?" Then I see they sued a band over 2 notes. At least it ain't true, and all the more credit to NoSoul for fooling so many.

I wouldn't even call them M#tallica without fear of a lawsuit, you might have you IP traced, and sent to jail RIAA style. I use the apt term Corptallica when referring to "The bay area thrashers", not orginal, but much less time consuming then "N'sync With Guitars and mean Scrowls"
