Football great John Elway doesn't feel honored that a punk rock band has taken his name.

The Hall of Fame quarterback, who won a pair of Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos, sicced his lawyer on the obscure band which goes by Elway.

“Last Thursday we got an email from a lawyer who represents Mr. Elway in his various legal and business excursions,” the band said in a statement to PunkNews.org. “The letter basically said that John had become aware of our little punk rock band and, though we make no reference to him in our songs or artwork, he saw fit to dispatch his legal team to demand that we (again) change our band name."

The band is holding firm, and likely hoping the publicity gives it a boost.
