A judge had ordered the band to choose a new name and the new band didn't stray far to find one.
From now on, the band fronted by Toronto singer Lukas Rossi will be known as Rock Star Supernova.
Rossi won the contest to be lead singer in a band consisting of drummer Tommy Lee, bassist Jason Newsted and guitarist Gilby Clarke.
The newly created band was to be called Supernova, but it turned out an existing group called Supernova was created in Orange County, Calif., in the 1990s.
The group, which has four albums, sued Mark Burnett, creator of the Rock Star reality TV series, for trademark infringement.
A judge issued an injunction on Sept. 12 preventing the new band from using the name.
He ordered the band to pick a new name and the new name they come up with was Rock Star Supernova.
Rock Star Supernova is already in the studio working on its debut album, due Nov. 21. Its first tour kicks off Dec. 31 in Las Vegas, with two Canadian dates so far.
