House of Pain Leader Everlast Battle Rental Company Over Trademark

House of Pain member Everlast, real name Erik Schrody, is suing a New York party company for trademark infringement on his group’s most famous track.

In a lawsuit filed in a New York court, the veteran rapper’s attorney wants to block Jump Around Rentals from trademarking the slogan, "If You Want To Get Down Jump Around,” citing an "egregious violation" of House of Pain’s 1992 hit “Jump Around”.

In contrary, the rental company’s bosses claim they have already invested heavily in marketing the slogan, and insist what they’re doing does not negatively impact the group’s brand, reports the NY Post.
