CBS have decided that the Frankensteinisation process which saw them ruin INXS forever by putting a talent-show winner into Michael Hutchence's leather pants was such a success, they're going to have another go. This time, they're going to make a band from scratch - melding a competition winner with Tommy Lee, Metallica's Jason Newsted and Guns n Roses' Gilby Clarke to create a whole new band, Supernova.

Everyone's happy, right?

Not 1990s punk-pop band Supernova - they're more than a little pissed that CBS is trying to steal their name.

Supernova say that they were "flipped the finger" when they tried to raise the matter with CBS; they're now using MySpace to launch a fightback.

Hey! INXS didn't need any help in turning themselves into laughing stocks. They were the ones who decided the perfect replacement (first of several) for Hutchence would be Terence Trent D'Arby.

Wasn't there supposed to be the - almost literal - second coming of Terence Trent a little while back, as some sort of spiritual artist?

Whatever happened to that, eh?

So what if the REAL Supernova aren't a big sellouts who will do anything to get on T.V. when their musical careers dried up. Does that mean a big corporate made-to-order service deserves the right to rip off someone's band identity? The producers knew what they were doing.

I've been having a hard time finding their music online because of this American Idol type-show hype. It's true that they need the name back. Every website says ROCKSTAR:Supernova, and they aren't an existing band.

Why does everyone jump when an entertainment executive tells them to? How innovative or long-lasting could music be if they aren't even creative enough to think of their own name?
