Akron can't complain about getting robbed!
Hello all, my name is Damon and I'm originally from Akron. Akron U. should be the last University talking about robbing someone! I used to be in a band called V.E.C. (1997-2003). We had this song named "A.K. Rowdy" and it was hot in 2000. 88wzip gave us alot of love, but at the same time their DJ's were bashing our song.

I moved to nashville in 03'. A friend of mine who attends the U of A called me and told me how THE U OF A and its student body started using the title "A.K. Rowdy" without asking for our permission or AT LEAST ACKNOWLEDGING the group. I'm not one of these petty people out here who'll sue for anything, but at the same time if I come up with something acknowledge it.

How would you feel if you worked your butt off doing something that you loved and someone else used it without acknowledging it?

Now if any of you understand the copyright laws then you know that one can't copyright a "Slogan". We copyright the SONG "A.K. Rowdy" under the name of our album, which was "The Ghetto don't luv nobody". Since it's not copyrighted under a title then it's free game. Hey we were young and didn't really comprehend that at the time, but for christ sake if you're gonna steal something as a fan section at least accredit the group who created it.

...or you could be honored and proud if what you say is true. Quit being so petty. Besides, what they hell kind of acknowledgment would you want anyway? I doubt they are about to hoist a banner of your likeness to the rafters of the JAR.

In all honesty i don't think AK-ROWDIES are doing you a disservice. As a matter of fact, i was a student while you were in school too and it was really cool to hear them play that song during basketball games last season. I don't know why they stopped but that is an Akron song for Akronites. There many songs written about things or places and they are meant in celebration! you should be proud that someone used your song as inspiration for the greater good of the student body to create a positive spin at sporting events to support your school and all of those alumni and students who are apart of the University of Akron family. Be proud! Go Zips!

Seems to me that YOU are the one whining! 03-hissyfit

From what I understand, it was the students who came up with using the name...not the university.

What do you want...residuals?
lmfao lmfao lmfao

How about an AK-ROWDY T-shirt?

If you wanted to accept responsibility for coming up with the name...fine.

But no one robbed you of anything...what were the students suppose to do, hire a private detective to find you and pay you your freaken 25 bucks?

I really don't know what your point is, other than to bash Akron, of course.

First off, you sit back and ask yourself " How would I feel if people didn't acknowledge you with something you put your heart and hard work into?", then ask yourself "How would I feel if your work were exploited and the ones exploiting it didn't even know the history of it?". But I'll tell you this, how bout I do a remix of the song for Kent State dissrespecting UA like they're doing us and shrug it off like Hey Oh Well? Yeah I think I'll do that 02-13-banana Let's see what kind of story that would make. I can see the head lines now:

AKRON STEALS FROM ARTIST, ARTIST REMIXES SONG FOR KENT DISSIN' AKRON

Then lets see if it's alright. I may not be able to do anything about the University using the A.K. Rowdy because it's a slogan, but I can remake a song for Kent with the A.K. Rowdy beat dissin Akron University. See cause if you or anyone else use the beat you have to get our permission which 1. I wouldn't give you and 2. You'd have to pay me if I did which I wouldn't accept

But I can and will remake the song dissin' the A.K. Rowdies with the A.K. Rowdy beat 01-wingedeagle

You must be an ignorant a-hole! I sent you a couple of low-key inquisitive PM's explaining what has gone on with the song and you fire back like you have never responded back to me, which you have, and then carry on with this ridiculous nonsense. The group is AK-ROWDIES, not A.K. Rowdy, which is the common slang term used for the city. It's not the same words or spelling anyway, so suck it a-hole! Go create your whack beats that nobody will listen to anyway! Out!

What a frickin sob story..... dude seriously... are you for real. You're in Nashville now writting rap tunes for the Grand-ole Opry no doubt. So what are you afraid of... the AK-rowdies ruining your street cred??? Seriously did you graduate or even attend class?? Is this what you think life is about? You got air time on UA radio... WOW.

BTW you're not the first to sing about the fine city of Akron and by far are not one of the most successful artists to emerge from the local music scene. Some Notables (national or international exposure), no particular order, for your enjoyment!

Chrissy Hynde - Lead singer of the Pretenders.. Sung "Way to go Ohio" and "Downtown Akron"

Dink - sang "Green mind"

Joe Walsh - remember the Eagles???

Trent Reznor - NIN

Marylin Manson

The Waitresses - sang "Christmas Wrappings" a lovely song about spending the holidays at TwinValu still heard every year around the country.

The Twist-Offs - Our own version of Phish???

Devo - Those were the legendary days of the 8o's Akron punk scene and bars around the old Anthony Wayne Hotel.

Less notable favs from my UA days: the Flying Carpet People, and the Crackhouse Jazz Quartet.


Sorry i've gotten off topic again...... who are you now?????? Oh that's right you're the guy from WZIP who had that A.K.Rowdie song..... Didn't that catch on at the university and the students used it as their nickname. .. Almost as popular as Fear-the-Roo i hear.... Oh wait!!! Unlike Fear the Roo himself you're the duche that whined he wasn't payed any royalties by the students...... LLLLOOOOOOOOSSSSSEEERRRR.

Seroiusly, how do you want to be remembered? For your song or for being a whiny :garfield:

You're not making your case.
