Would you have ever expected the paths of an experimental rock band and a Canadian diva would cross?

Back in 2002, the English experimental rock band Muse took legal action against Canadian diva Celine Dion. Why? Because Dion announced her forthcoming Las Vegas show would be called “Muse”; the same name as the UK band.

Worried about the possible effects on their impact and their credibility, Singer Matt Bellamy of the band Muse said at the time, “We don’t want to turn up there with people thinking we’re Celine Dion’s backing band.”

The 140 million-record-selling singer offered $50,000 for the use of the name, but Muse steadfastly refused.
