Video Taken Down and Lawsuit Dropped, Vol. 2 Lands at No. 2, and Record Store Day


The QLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for Springfield’s Real Rock, 92.7 QLZ

 

Video taken down and lawsuit dropped

 

They dropped the video and with it the lawsuit … The saga over a toy company using a parody of a Beastie Boys song has come to an end after GoldieBlox decided to drop their bid to use the parody. The video showed several girls watching a boring TV commercial for some prissy princess toy, but then they kick on some crazy Rube Goldberg contraption and a song very similar to Beastie Boys’ “Girls” comes on. The remaining members of Beastie Boys didn’t like that too much and sounded the alarm. GoldieBlox went to court saying they wanted the right because it was a “parody” of the song. Beastie Boys said they support breaking down gender roles and what not, but the toy company was still trying to sell a product. The group has been steadfast in their opposition of using their music in commercial advertising. Even MCA’s will said no commercial advertising can use his music. Well, after this long drawn out saga, Goldieblox dropped their lawsuit and even pulled the video which had over 8 million views. But, they got the necessary publicity out of the whole deal, so it’s a win.

 

Vol. 2 lands at No. 2

 

They did it! They landed on the top of the charts … well maybe not the top, but pretty damn close. Five Finger Death Punch’s latest release Wrong Side of Heaven and the Rigtious Side of Hell Volume 2 landed at No. 2 on the charts. Volume 1 also landed at No. 2 when it was released this past summer. Not bad for a hard rock outfit! Esspecially when they go and sell more copies of their album than Lady Gaga sold. FFDP are currently out on the road with Avenged Sevenfold in Euriope and they will headline ShipRocked 2014 next year. Plus they’re taking suggestions for next years’ Trespass America tour.

 

Record Store Day
