Guy Still Suing Bon Jovi for $400 Billion

A Boston man has decided to appeal a judge's ruling, opting to continue his $400 billion lawsuit against Bon Jovi and Major League Baseball. Samuel Steele claims Bon Jovi stole his "(Man I Really) Love This Team" to create "I Love This Team," a song that appeared a lot during the 2007 World Series. Steele Claims Bon Jovi heard the song in 2004, when it became something of a regional hit, and stole his joint.

 

But at a trial to determine whether or not the lawsuit could continue, Steele's own musicologist claimed the songs aren't alike. A judge ruled that the case should be thrown out, but Steele is still fighting, going to the Court of Appeals.

 

Dude, just scale back your asking price a bit, and maybe you can get a settlement. Go down to like $34, and maybe JBJ will throw you some paper. [Reuters]

400 Billion seems a fair asking price. I mean, dude's got to stand up for what he believes. That one blew up in your face, didn't it, Jov?

400 Billion because a two songs have the same melodic progression!? Way over the top. Why doesn't this guy take his case to every rapper that's ever ripped a song. I've already got my ticket to see Bon Jovi in Seattle on 2/19/10. http://bit.ly/aN4cV. Check out the new album "The Circle" here http://www.amazon.com/The-Circle/dp/B002V0WN2K?tag=islancom-20

This should be a class action suit, where everybody who watched the World Series and was subjected to this song is entitled compensation.
