    Obvious money grabbing there, or attempting to get into the lime light again.

    Bingo - I fear someone may have spent all their moneys and need some more for a gold plated bar in the swimming pool.

    Well it is their song. If guitar hero is using it without their permission to make a profit I would have to agree with them.

    Dropping your pants in a court of law does not deploy star power.

    Are they trying to argue that the original song was not used because the cover could be made just as good for less but still be legal or that the cover was to close to the original and erm... you know what there is no logical explination to this other than to grind some money out of it.

    all found here http://cdbaby.net/dd?f=8 closest thing I could find that seemed to compliment the story.

    Much like the 'Streisand effect'. They really should have seen it coming.

    Oh, hrmmmm... Well that is rubbish.

    Don't make your cover song too good or you'll get sued.
