DIOS DIES: More Black Sabbath related stupidity, with the forcing of a name change on Dios by Ronnie James Dio, afeared that people might confuse the two:

"In May, dios received a curious letter from Ronnie James Dio (better known as DIO). His attorneys decided to serve the Hawthorne five-piece with a cease and desist order, threatening harsh consequences if immediate action wasn’t taken. The former Black Sabbath frontman believes it likely that folks will be confused. So, to help Mr DIO protect his trademark and avoid costly litigation, young dios would like to announce their new name.
After long nights of debate, twelve pages of crossed out lists, and hours of soul-searching, we are pleased to offer you this improved, DIO approved moniker: DIOS MALOS."

We wonder if Ronnie James Dio has thought through the potential problems if people confused him with Dido, though - surely she must also be made to cease and desist. We'd happily draft a letter for him.

Dios Malos - "Bad Gods" - much better name anyway!
