DANIEL WHITTOCK,not mentioned in article, was a member of the band, and appeared on original recordings with Cherry Red Records. The song Dirge by Death in Vegas was subject of a lawsuit by the band Five or Six, as it is borrowed extensively from their song Another Reason. The matter was settled with Five or Six receiving writing credit for Dirge. From the album The Contino Sessions, "Dirge" helped Death in Vegas gain more recognition, culminating in a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 2000. Although predominantly rock-influenced, the album still retained some electronic elements, in particular the opening track "Dirge" with its drum machine-based rhythm track. "Dirge", featuring a vocal chant by Allison, is perhaps one of the band's most recognisable tracks. "Dirge" was featured on a Levi's jeans commercial, as well as the second installment of the Blair Witch Project, and was used in the trailer for the 2006 film The Black Dahlia. The song was also used at the end of the 2009 remake of The Last House on the Left, near the end of the Being Human episode "The Longest Day", and in the second episode of season two of Misfits.
