View Full Version : Audioslave forced to pay "Bad Band Name" tax

Audioslave (featuring Cornell and the remaining members of RATM) ended up paying an unsigned Liverpool band $30,000 US for the rights to share the name. This suggests to me that the Liverpudlians actually wanted to keep the name. I guess both sides of this story are idiots, but only one probably sounds like bad AC/DC.

I thought they were going by 'Citizen' originally. That would have been much better IMO.

Maybe they should be called 'Rage Against Any Chance That We'll Be Better Than Soundgarden or RATM'.

AC/DC? no way

I do think this is more like soundgarden, but a bad example of soundgarden. It's alright. Kind of feels like it didn't take long to make this cd. Soundgarden, reunite you fucks, you were putting your best music out in the later years.

Nope, just saw the Cochise video. It's AC/DC.

The song is not blues based. EVERY ac/dc song is blues based.
