Band Beat Up Former Singer? (Top 12 of June 2012)

(TMZ) Band Beat Up Former Singer? was a top 12 pop story of June 2012: A popular band was none too please when the lead singer quit, and they acted out their anger by beating the crap out of him -- according to allegations made in a police report.

Aron "Deuce" Erlichman was the lead singer of Hollywood Undead, a rap/rock band. Deuce decided to quit the band a few months ago to launch a solo career.

On May 25, Deuce performed at Angels & Kings -- a Hollywood hotspot. After his gig, Deuce left the club and claims his former bandmates were "lying in wait." Deuce claims when they spotted him, they jumped him and went to town -- punching, kicking and stomping on him.

Deuce says he was badly hurt and went to cops, alleging former bandmates Dylan "FunnyMan" Alvarez and Jorel "J-Dog" Decker were the primary culprits. Deuce also told cops the two dudes had someone videotape the attack.

Now, Deuce plans to sue -- and has already hired legal pitbull Donald Karpel.

Cops are investigating. So far, no comment from FunnyMan or J-Dog.
