Judge bars 'Rock Star' band from using 'Supernova' name

UPI News Service, 09/13/2006 

The producers of CBS' "Rock Star: Supernova" reality TV competition have to come up with a new name for the all-star band.

The supergroup made up of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee, Voivod's Jason Newsted and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke took the name of an Orange County, Calif., punk trio, San Diego Judge John Houston ruled Tuesday.

The judge granted Supernova's request for a preliminary injunction, barring the CBS group from "performing rock and roll music, or recording, or selling rock and roll music recordings under the same (name), pending a trial of this action on its merits, or until otherwise ordered by the court," reported.

Supernova bassist Art Mitchell, drummer Dave Collins and guitarist Jodey Lawrence had a minor hit since forming in 1989. The group, which has released four albums, had the song "Chewbacca" on the soundtrack to Kevin Smith's 1994 film "Clerks."

The CBS competition seeking a lead singer for its Supernova was to wrap up with a live sing-off Wednesday night with a tour scheduled to begin with a New Year's Eve show in Las Vegas.
