From AOL news:

'G4 could be sued by a heavy metal band who reckon they have stolen their name.

Geared4 say the wholesome foursome's popularity since appearing on ITV talent show The X Factor is ruining their own wild-living image.

The group say they are widely known as G4 by their fans, according to The Sun.

Lead singer Glenn Abel said: "The other G4 think we are just a small band and they can walk all over us but they can't. We will fight this to the end.

"We have been made a complete laughing stock. Our tough image has been destroyed and is beginning to affect our music.

"G4 is part of our product name and is used on our Web site, merchandise, promotion and correspondence.

"We just want them to accept that we have the name first. They should stop using it."

Geared4 claim that rival bands have started dubbing them "The Choirboys" because of G4's classical repertoire and squeaky-clean image.'

haha, oh well.

they are truely awful...i beleive the new album...or first whichever way you want to go with this is nothing more than a covers album.

I can apprieciate that it is slightly harder to write classical music but for the time they have had...you would think they would be able to muster at least an attempt!

Sounds like this metal band needs to sort their egos out. "Boo fucking hoo, we get called choirboys"

Fuck off.

If their image is being destroyed, they shouldn't let that affect their music...

All in all though, G4 are just a bunch of pretentious arses

Their ability as singers aside, they are simply making a joke of themselves with their laughable cover versions.

Sales pitch 4 The Sun,

Just mainstream nonsense, as gridlock sez, bang bang :)

tis a funny covers band approach though, like 17year old boys doing "20th Century Boy" by T. Rex, in drummonds on a friday night :) heh, challenging entertainment huh?

'Mick Flowers' is the Rector of Ellon Academy now.... on occasions at Xmas assembly he has been known to treat the pupils with his version of the Oasis hit 'Wonderwall'.

It's a flat fact, kids.

The heavy-metal-band-with-the-pretentious-representation must have been watching TV (probably Trisha) when a Claims Direct advert came on. Reminds me of the time I sued my mate's snake for shitting on the drive.

Judge Judy will most likely throw this one out on the grounds that 'tough image' isn't exactly the strongest case to put forward.
