Beastie Boys File Suit, Benefit Concert Planned, and What is Puscifer?


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

 

Beastie Boys file suit

 

Apparently an apology and a voluntary taking down of the video wasn’t enough for the Beastie Boys … The remaining members of the group have filed suit against GoldiBlox over a video the toy company put out with a parody of the Beastie tune “Girls”. The suits first started when GoldiBlox filed something in court seeking copyright protections because of the song they used wasn’t the exact song … it was changed up with little kids singing different lyrics, but the internet video, which had been viewed over 8 million times before it was voluntarily taken down by the toy company, was still selling something, and Boys Beastie weren’t having it. The suit filed by the remaining members of the group say that GoldieBlox “achieved and continues to achieve additional publicity, press coverage and upon information and belief, greater sales of its products, as a direct result of the Beastie Boys.” Can’t argue with that. The suit also says instead of “developing an original ad campaign” the toy company developed a campaign that “condones and encourages stealing from others.” Beastie boys don’t allow their tunes to be used in commercials.

 

Benefit concert planned

 

Not many rock stars can build houses or provide direct humanitarian assistance to places wrecked by mother nature, but what they can do is raise money! Linkin Park, the Offspring and some other special guests have been confirmed for a concert January 11th in LA to raise money for victims of the hurricane that rocked the Philippines earlier this year. It’s gonna be an exclusive deal with only 500 tickets being made available. People wanting to get in will have to raise a minimum of $250 for typhoon relief. The top fund raisers overall will be rewarded with other perks.

 

What is Puscifer?

 

The band fronted by Maynard has posted a minute long video online asking the question “What is Puscfer.” In the video, comedian and actor Bob Odenkirk asks the question and even tries to answer it by saying “is it the part of a lady?” or “do men have it too?” and asks if it’s “Something you should have checked out?” The video also has some clips of a concert film from the band that’s available through iTunes.
