I'm putting a power metal band together .
The name I want to use is ThunderCross.
As some may know it's the name Rhapsody (Of Fire) used for there first demo.
Will there be any issues (loegal or otherwise)

shouldnt forsee any,alot of bands are named after songs/albums/movies etc
Machine head are named after a deep purple album, black sabbath are named after a movie.. there's loads more.

I guess she's pretty hot if you're into that "having a good music video, but not better than Beyonce's" kind of thing...

I doubt there'd be any problem with it. First, look at how few people have even heard of Rhapsody, let alone listen to them. Now, of those people, most of them don't even know that ThunderCross was the name they used for their first demo. Factor in the fact that the demo is probably so obscure that a grand total of 10 people probably have it, and the fact that the band probably wouldn't even care, and you have your answer.

Though, I must say, it's a horrible band name.

Very true. However, I think it is about as cheesy as Dragonforce.

Yes, Rhapsody is very popular amongst power metal fans, but that doesn't mean that everybody knows the entire history behind them.
