FOOTNOTE OF THE DAY: From Pump, Inc. v. Collins Mgmt. Inc., 746 F.Supp. 1159 (D. Mass. 1990) a case relating to a dispute about the use of "Pump" as a title for an Aerosmith album, comes the following assessment:
As most persons interested in rock music are aware, Aerosmith has developed a well-earned reputation as one of America's louder rock bands and has cultivated a devoted adolescent following since the early 1970s. Its hit songs include such classics as "Walk This Way," "Dream On," "Sweet Emotion,""My Big Ten Inch," and the poignant "Dude Look Like A Lady." The Court expresses no opinion as to the socially redeeming aspects of Aerosmith's work.
