"U Can't Touch This," MC Hammer
Hammer was sued for not crediting Rick James for using "Superfreak" to make this song.
Martha Hankins
"Un Ballo in Maschera," Giuseppe Verdi
Giuseppe Verdi had originally planned to write this opera as one about King Gustav III of Sweden's 1792 assassination based on a libretto by Eugène Scribe. However, Neapolitan censors would not allow any murder of a monarch, real or fake on stage, so, after scrambling through other censors with his librettist Antonio Somma, he got approval of his opera in Rome, and he eventually changed the setting to Boston in the 17th century and the "victim" to a fictional governor of Boston.
Aalan of Seville
