2 INJAs? :/
« on: May 25, 2005, 02:25:29 pm »
I was looking around for anything to do with INJA on the internet, and I came across this article:

http://www.ukhh.com/reviews/lp/1735.html

Seems Inja is a UK rapper. This is a slight concern, because I believe wherever you are in the world, you cannot release music using the same name as another artists; does'nt matter how famous/successful either artist is.

Just thought I'd pass this on. Maybe if the band notice and wanna phone up Kahl and warn him... I dunno.

Actually, there are many bands using the same names. At least 2 of my top 10 bands at Audioscrobbler have other bands using the same names, namely Devil Doll and Jack. And the finnish band HIM has a different name in the US, apparantly, because there's another band called Him over there...

I agree, though, it shouldn't be that way...

EDIT: Yep, HIM is finished. Fixed...

HIM are finnish, stop trying to steal the credit! :)

Similar thing happened with Blink-182 when they started (hahhaha, they lost) so they had to change their name.

A momentary lapse of memory. It's fixed..oh, and I'm excused. Had an exam today, and as such, my brain is fried...
