The writer of the famed Chicago Bears song, “The Super Bowl Shuffle” is taking media conglomerate Viacom to court. Julia Meyer is claiming MTV and VH1 played the hit song without permission.
The song was written in 1985 when the Bears won the Super Bowl. Interest in the song is up because its 25th anniversary is approaching. In Meyer’s lawsuit against the parent company of both VH1 and MTV, she says that Viacom is undermining potential sales of the song as its silver anniversary approaches.
The single sold more than 500,000 copies when it first released.
Ohhh Viacom, you’re so bad, you know you’re good!
