Cadaver Dogs Sue Radioshack For Use Of “Drop Zone” In Commercial

1 Views 5 Comments

According to Nightbeast/Astro Fang bassist Christian Roerig, who is currently touring with Ohio powerhouse rock at Cadaver Dogs, Cadaver Dogs are currently involved in a lawsuit against Radioshack.  Apparently, Radioshack recently used a piece of the band’s music in a commercial.

“It was an instrumental cut sent out specifically for licensing. Unfortunately, someone else was falsely credited for the music for a month before proper credit was acknowledged by Radioshack,” Cadaver Dogs reported. “The commercial had over 1.5 million views and was in constant rotation on such events as Monday Night Football during that time.”

The music in question was taken from Cadaver Dogs’ “Drop Zone,” which originally appeared on the band’s Thrill Ride EP.  Here is a link to the song:

Although the offending commercial has been pulled, presumably as a result of the lawsuit, it is still available here:
