Bands Who Broke Up And Kept Fighting About Their Name

The music history books are filled with stories of successful bands that broke up, but not all of those breakups led to lengthy legal battles over the rights to the band's name. Band names are precious, and it's understandable that members would want to hold onto the moniker that made them rich and famous. Still, most of the bands that broke up and went on to fight over their name likely never imagined their disputes would become a notable part of their lasting legacies.

Whether a petty dispute or a rational claim, most bands that break up don't expect to deal with issues surrounding their name in the years after their final show.
