The 1980s heavy metal band Twisted Sister, which once had an album called "Stay Hungry," sent the operators of the Minneapolis Twisted Sister House of Hunger food truck a cease-and-desist order, citing consumer confusion, KARE 11 reports.

"I don't know how somebody could get a 20-foot aluminum box mixed up with an '80s rock band," food truck operator Cody Allen told KARE. He said he hadn't decided yet on whether to change the name of the mobile hot dog and barbecue joint.
