PETA wants Aussie rock band Hunters & Collectors to change its name.
The Australian head of campaigns for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has written to the members of the 1980s rock group urging them to consider the name change to “discourage people from hunting animals”.
It struck us that there were other band names that might need to change their name...
