Devils being Sued

The leader of a Brooklyn band wants to stick it to the New Jersey Devils, saying the puck-heads stole one of his songs.

Rob Traynor and the rest of Black Water Rising filed a $30 million suit after the team allegedly refused to pay for using "Rise" in a video.

His lawyer, Wallace Collins, said the Devils "are . . . offering an insultingly small amount of money to settle."

A spokesman for the Devils said the suit is "without merit."

Is that the 'Rise' song that plays during the start of the games?

If so, good sue, we stop playing it and go back to "Hells Bells" or even Yani.

Totally agree.

Plus that Rise song sucks ass.

Plus what is an amount to him that is not insulting? Does he want a million dollars?

The band Mastadon should sue that band for using the term "crack the skye" in the lyrics.

Then we should all sue them for making terrible, terrible music.

Seriously, Brooklyn is a teeming mass of incredible music, how in god's name can you possibly live there and still churn out overwrought nu-metal like it's 2001 again?

Worst opening song and video ever. They replaced yanni/hells bells/images of our players with pictures of 3 or 4 fans and that crappy song. Devils Marketing strikes again!

I echo that sentiment. The Yani song needs to be brought back. Maybe that's the "missing piece of nostalgia" that can finally rekindle a winning attitude...Sure's heck that Marty and Patty will remember it... :-)

Haha anything the Devils do wrong is always obviously the marketing department's fault. I think people are programmed to blame them for everything. "Zajac missing the beginning of the season??? Damn that marketing department!"

Well they are such pathetically easy targets.

I'd suspect the video was made by the gameday ops folks?

What's sad for this fvckstick and his band is that they'll become more well-known for suing the Devils than for any music they've ever made. And that intro video sucks balls, I agree with all of you on that.
