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!

Appeal to the Ladies - Phil Collins
I saw Phil Collins in concert last October And the Sold Out show featured people from many generations, all races + colors + ethnicities, and both sexes. I heard some individual women shout 'I love you, Phil!'. Of course, when it came to concert swag there were corremorative 2018 Tour t-shirts but there were some women's shirts that had a heart design on front and the title of one of his hits - 'Easy Lover'. Mhm.

Selling A Song Title Namesake - Motorhead
Get this - before the band split in late 2015 upon the death of singer/songwriter/bassist 'Lemmy' Ian Kilmeister, the official Motorhead store site was selling electric dildos (vibrators) with the band name on them. One of the very first songs they put out was 'Vibrator' which is lyrically a 3rd person narrative (POV) of one of those devices itself!
RIP LEMMY

Catalog Dispute - Cheap Trick
Their 1999 live CD 'Music For Hangovers' is listed as CT's SECOND official (authorized) live release. Before the Trick (and other bands) were dumped by the major record labels in the big mid 90s reshuffling, their old company Epic released 'Budokan II' in 1993. The CD tray for 'Music For Hangovers' lists their whole authorized catalog, without 'Budokan II' and it lists 2 authorized videos. The comes the disclaimer: BUYER BEWARE!: Any other Cheap Trick releases are unauthorized and not sanctioned by the band. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!'. The CD tray of the next album, 'Special One' from 2003 shows a panorama of authorized Cheap Trick albums incl. the 1980 EP 'Found All the Parts' but still no 'Budokan II'. Strange enough, some (but not all) of the tracks of that album appear on the 1998 2-CD set 'At Budokan: The Complete Concert' which IS listed as 'authorized' (the 1979 classic 'At Budokan' being the first).
