Band Sues Activision Over 'Guitar Hero II: Rocks The 80's' (PS2) Track

Activision, RedOctane and developer Harmonix are getting sued by rock band The Romantics over the inclusion of its hit single "What I Like About You," by cover band Wavegroup Sound, in Guitar Hero II Rocks The 80s. Reason? The Romantics claim that the performance is "virtually indistinguishable from the authentic version" and might confuse consumers as to whether the recording is an original piece.
