Winger End Beavis and Butthead Feud
At the time, Winger guitarist Reb Beach said the show led to DJs dropping the band's songs from playlists and record and gig ticket sales dried up as a result.
But frontman Kip Winger says he finally buried the hatchet with Judge when the show made a comeback in 2011. He tells The Weeklings: When they did the Beavis and Butt-head remake I found Mike and told him I wanted to clear the air. I never tried to sue MTV or Mike, I never had a problem with the cartoon. I mean, it was David and Goliath, really. There was nothing you could do but take it like a man. It certainly didn't help us, I'll tell you that. But it was a funny show and Mike's a funny guy.
"Winger was a band that was popular for some of the wrong reasons, man. So we ended up on the show. I don't believe there was any malicious intent. We exchanged some emails; Mike is a very nice guy, no hard feelings. I was hoping maybe he'd give me a voice-over role in the new cartoon though." He had a lot more to say.
