Axl Rose Sues Guitar Hero for $20 Million for Including Images of SlashAxl Rose hates Slash so much he doesn't even want his former Guns N' Roses bandmate included in a video game associated with the band. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Rose is suing 'Guitar Hero' maker Activision for $20 million for violating a deal to not include imagery of Slash or his band Velvet Revolver in 'Guitar Hero III.'

"[Activision] began spinning a web of lies and deception to conceal its true intentions to not only feature Slash and [Velvet Revolver] prominently in 'GH III' but also promote the game by emphasizing and reinforcing an association between Slash and Guns N' Roses and the band's song 'Welcome to the Jungle,'" the complaint stated.

The lawsuit was put in place by Rose and his company, Black Frog Music, at the Los Angeles Superior Court, and argues the images violate Activision's use of GNR's 'Welcome to the Jungle.' The lawsuit seeks to repair the "damages" from sales.
