Name: Sugar Ray
Originally: Shrinky Dinx
Legal fracas: Milton Bradley thought their music might taint the honor and dignity of their tiny toys, and forced the "Fly" boys to switch. Apparently Sugar Ray Leonard didn't have any problem with their tunes.
Legal fracas: An Irish techno band apparently didn't want people to think they were the forever-pubescent dudes who talked about masturbation a lot in public.
Legal fracas: Mattel didn't take too kindly to the San Diego pop band naming themselves after a 1970s toy helicopter.
Originally: Chicago Transit Authority
Legal fracas: The city of Chicago's public transportation department didn't want no dirty rock band representin' their respectable public transportation department.
Originally: Purple Helmet
Legal fracas: There wasn't one-the guys just figured they were too mature to be so overtly penile.
Name: Stone Temple Pilots
Originally: Mighty Joe Young
Legal fracas: The somewhat dense semi-San Diegans apparently didn't realize that you couldn't name yourselves after a real, live, famous bluesman. Oops. They liked "STP" oil stickers, so they made up a band name with that initials, opting not to go with Shirley Temple's Pussy.
