Too Cheesy?

Too Cheesy?

There was talk of a limited-edition line of cheeses that will be offered by Aldi that are named after popular songs from the ’80s. Some examples are “Sweet Cheddar of Mine” a play on the GNR song and “Pour Some Gouda on Me” from the Def Leppard song.  The problem:  Nobody checked with the bands. Def Leppard…not so happy about it. Here is Joe Elliot:

]”It’s completely illegal, absolutely nothing to do with us, nothing that we’ve sanctioned or said yes too — it’s just totally unauthorized. So, what you’re gonna find now — at least us and Guns N’ Roses — are sending out cease and desist [notices] to stop them. Because, I’m thinking, ‘Oh man, if people really think that we’re doing this…’ It’s like being hacked at by a snow axe, you know. We knew nothing about it until a mate of mine said, ‘Nice. You gonna start doing wine and cheese parties now then are you?'”
