Legendary Canadian garage-soul duo King Khan And BBQ Show are changing their name to Bad News Boys. Apparently, the group came under some legal fire from a restaurant in Germany with a similar name, and has opted to revert back to what was actually the band’s original name in 2003.
 
Instead of dwelling on legal hang-ups, the band is pushing forward. Today also marks the unveiling of a new song called We Are The Champion, and a totally bonkers new video to go along with it. They’ll release a new album as Bad News Boys on In The Red early next year. In the meantime, the dudes will complete their final tour as King Khan And BBQ Show with their ol’ pals Black Lips. Check out the tour dates and the video below.
