Yes, an American band called Asia! The supergroup's manager Brian Lane was aghast these plebians wouldn't just hand over the rights to the name Asia and actually wanted monetary recompense for their trademarked name!

It's a fun story and I own the 2 albums on 1 cd version of their 2 albums - 1979's Asia and 1980's Armed To the Teeth
