Blimey, you really can do wonderful things if you've got an XBox. For example, something like violating the integrity of a former drummer with Ink and Dagger. You or I would find that difficult to do, but said drummer Ryan McLaughlin claims Microsoft did it by including some songs by his old band on some snowboarding game (Amped, for those of you to whom that will mean something). McLaughlin says, indeed, he's outraged:

"outraged that my artistic integrity has been so brazenly violated."

Blimey. Microsoft have issued a statement as dry as you would expect:

"Microsoft respects intellectual property rights and enters into licensing agreements for music and media in our games and other products."

The game is apparently four years old, but that's how long you'd expect the average drummer to get past the loading screen.
