You metalheads all know the band Rhapsody, right?  EEMRALD SORD and all that?

Well, due to "copyright and trademark issues", they've had to change their name.  One can only assume it's because of the Rhapsody online music store.

So what did these geniuses change their name to?  Well, you should know from listening to them in the past that it wouldn't be something ballsy. :P

OMG

I'm kinda disappointed the word dragon wasn't used at least twice in their new name, but what can you do? :P

That would have been much better name for that band.

I wonder how they had to change their name when they existed before the download service.

Most likely being lazy about getting the copyright/trademarks. Kinda like how I figure Sony got into that stupid mess with the force feedback. And I hate this kinda shit, but I find it kinda amusing an 'of fire' is apparantly enough. Not as bad as when WD had to rename Vanguard Bandits to that name, but that was less legitimate and more silly threatening. :P

Happens to a lot of bands.  Green Jello had to change their name to Green Jelly after General Foods kicked up a stink.  Due to multiple bands with the trademark on the name Dinosaur, a particular band with that name had to change it to Dinosaur Jr.  

Now if they had changed it to Rhapsody in White, I'd have laughed hysterically since that's the name of the poodle in "Best of Show"

Fucking.  Retarded.

Not the name, I'll get back to that in a minute, but I mean the whole OH CHANGE YOUR NAME after being around for ten years.  Fucking idiotic shit.  On the part of the people who made them change their name and on the part of the band for either A) not regging their name or B) choosing something SO GENERIC.

As for the title, I have a song called Hellfire Rhapsody...  ...Which is now too similar to that name.
