Mest Up!

Posted by: Frank Giaramita (06/08/06)
Tony Lovato (ex-singer of Mest) has a new band named Permanent Holiday and he's being hassled by another band named Permanent Holiday to change the name. Check below to see what Tony's opposition had to say about the issue.

Note: Keep in mind, this is only one side of the story. Also, don't always believe everything you read when it comes to "direct" quotes.
Permanent Holiday May Be Temporary For TonyTony Lovato stole our name "Permanent Holiday" and we plan on fighting for it by any means neccesary. We asked him nicely to change it to which his reply was "nothing to get all bent about" and "you should be stoked I'm sure there are alot of kids comin over to your site simply based on the fact they think im in the band.." followed by "we'll be on tour with fallout boy in a few months and then GC so um after that i think the kids will know he difference between bands. late"

This name has been ours for quite some time and we're not about to just give it up. Say what you want about us say what you want about Tony but this name honestly means more to us than anyone could ever understand. We've grown up in this band together and become a family under this name. Losing it would leave us with a feeling we can't begin to explain. We're not about to just let it go without a fight.

Mest are quite possibly the worst band ever. And touring with Fall Out Boy and Good Charlotte? Hahaha.

Who cares, there were two LFOs as well and the smaller one never got bent out of shape when the other one got big.

There can be room for two bands with the same name in this world.

On a side note, Rohan's band, Holiday Parade, are actually pretty good.

Haha, my band was once called Skipjack and a shitty band from San Diego forced us to change our name, even wanted a lawyer to force us ... after we did, they never recorded anything again and disbanded ... I still hate them so bad for that ...

Yes, because it wouldn't be confusing as hell if both got big.

If you copyright a name, you OWN it, it is YOURS, and you have the right to it so this band getting upset is completely justified.

If popularity determined what was morally correct or incorrect this world would be extremely disoriented.
