'Welcome to the Jungle': That'll be $20 million, thank you

Axl Rose's $20 million lawsuit today against Activision Blizzard Inc. for using a Guns N' Roses song in its "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" video game will take place early next year, a judge said today.

Rose alleges that Santa Monica-based Activision reneged on a promise not to use images of the band's former guitarist, Saul "Slash" Hudson, in the game. After a short conference with attorneys in chambers, Judge Charles Palmer scheduled the trial for Jan. 23.

"Simply put, the association between Slash and Guns N' Roses ended almost 15 years ago. Rose resists any attempts to revive or strengthen this past association," the complaint says.

Activision has denied any wrongdoing.

Rose's court papers described the contested song, "Welcome to the Jungle," as a "highly-renowned rock song of immense popularity regarded by fans and critics alike as one of the greatest hard rock songs of all time."

"Guitar Hero III" has generated well over $1 billion for Activision, according to singer's lawsuit, filed Nov. 23 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
