Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.

Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.

And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.

Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."

Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).

The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:

We can't really believe it, but it's been nearly a year since Miley Cyrus last hosted the VMAs, which gave us some of the most memorable live TV moments of 2015.

Well, that's all old news… because MTV officially revealed the nominations for the 2016 MTV VMAs on Tuesday, and we could not agree more with the network's selection of honored music videos!

The New Ghostbusters Song May Be A Stinker — But These Are The 10 WORST Movie Theme Songs Ever!

Ghostbusters is hitting theaters this weekend, and while the female led Sony reboot is getting positive reviews despite all the online hate — there's one thing we can all agree on…

That new Ghostbusters theme song is pretty AWFUL!

ICYMI, Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott remixed the beloved Ray Parker Jr. tune, and fans did NOT have nice things to say about the strange pop-metal version.

This isn't the first time the Ghostbusters theme song was remixed into a lesser version of the original, either. Run-D.M.C. accomplished a very similar feet for Ghostbusters 2!

Sadly, there are quite a few more movie songs that should never have made the film's soundtrack — like MC Hammer's Addam's Groove for the 1991 big screen debut of the Addam's Family — which is so bad, it makes Fall Out Boy's Ghostbusters sound like Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On! Ha!

Ch-ch-check out our full list (below) to see the WORST movie songs from Will Smith, Vanilla Ice, and even Kanye West!
