Jason Null, 33, and Brandon Danger, 21, were arraigned Friday on charges of forced oral copulation and forced oral copulation on a minor.

Null, a founder and lead guitarist with the group, pleaded not guilty. His attorney says the charges are "baseless" and his client will be exonerated. Danger has yet to enter a plea.

Police say the girl was lured onto the band's tour bus Tuesday night thinking she would be in a rock video. Once inside, they say she was forced to perform the sex act.
