Getting Punched in the Face by Jack White. - The Von Bondies
The main singer of the Von Bondies, Jason Stollsteimer, was at a Detroit club in 2003 in support of a local band when Jack White wanted to speak to him. Stollsteimer refused, so White pinned him to a speaker and punched him in the face multiple times, even getting angered at Stollsteimer's unwillingness to fight. White was later charged to take anger management classes, as well as being fined. Stollsteimer left with a ridiculously mangled face, including a swollen right eye and a bloody nose. White had formerly produced the Von Bondies' debut album from 2001, "Lack Of Communication", and felt that the fight was a publicity stunt for their 2004 album "Pawn Shoppe Heart".

Selling a Song Name on a Shirt - Electric Light Orchestra
Last night I fulfilled a t(w)een dream and went to a wonderful concert featuring the Electric Light Orchestra (due to British rock'n'roll legalities, a.k.a. 'business shit', it's called 'Jeff Lynne's ELO' now. No matter.). The opening guest was Dhani Harrison, who is the bright talented son of a guy named George who in turn was in a band called the Beatles. Ever heard of them? Anyway, the swag booths were selling T-shirts and some of the ELO shirts featured that famous logo starship of theirs. They also sold some women's shirts with the title of one of their hits on the front - 'Evil Woman'. I saw that and I literally LMFAO until I nearly got sick, right in the waiting line. Honest!
