You may recall that the name Supernova was already owned by another band, and so the courts ordered the band from the show Rock Star: Supernova to stop using the same name. Showing a complete lack of originality or creativity, the band has settled on their new name—Rock Star Supernova. I know, I know, it’s a subtle difference, what with the removal of the colon and all. Seems that’s all that Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted, Gilby Clarke and their new frontman Lukas Rossi could muster. So, rather than being called Supernova, it’s now Rockstar Supernova. Catchy, no? Well, I guess there are kookier names out there (Death Cab for Cutie comes to mind), but still I would have expected Gilby with his super songwriting abilities to have crafted something a little more interesting. For those itching to have the Rockstar Supernova album, you’ll have to settle for the two songs available on Yahoo Music. They won’t be recording their album until later this year.

If you’ve been following along with this season’s Rock Star and wondering what ever happened to last year’s Rock Star: INXS contestants, this one’s for you. Fans of last season’s MiG, one of the three finalists, has signed a record deal. His self-titled debut will be released in January and will feature covers of “A Kiss From A Rose,” by Seal, David Bowie’s “Life On Mars,” The Police’s “Wrapped Around Your Finger” and Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” He also recorded “Baby I Love Your Way,” with Peter Frampton—the first single is already available for download on Yahoo!
If you recall, MiG grew up in Australia, but lived in London, appearing in the musicals Rent and We Will Rock You. Then he took on the challenge of Rock Star: INXS, proving to be a worthy competitor. No word yet on whether or not the entire album will be covers (let’s hope there’s something original in there) or when it will be released.
