Rob Halford files for 'Metal God' game trademark
Leather-clad Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford earned the nickname 'Metal God' for his tribute to metal music, named after his band's song of the same name. Now, Halford has copyrighted the Metal God moniker for a video game…
"The trademark was filed on January 11 of this year and covers 'computer games; video games; and game controllers for computer games'," reports Kotaku. "
