I don't exactly have a reason why, but The Black Keys piss me off every time they open their mouth. Kinda like The Dangerous Summer, except with shittier music
Cool.

This is misleading. It's definitely not their music being used. It's soundalike music, kind of like how movies and shows will use a modified version of 2 Unlimited "Get Ready for This" because they can't afford the actual song. This sounds like "Gold On The Ceiling," but it's not.

It sucks, but it's not infringement.
i actually think Tom Waits won a lawsuit in the late 80s when a company used a sound alike song of his in an ad, dick move for sure though

i'll laugh if their pub company signed off on it.

I mean it must suck for them to go through this, and it's definitely worth getting mad over. But honestly there are few bands out there who are constantly whining to the world as much these two.

I bet they will be happy when corporations stop blatantly ripping off their music, but I'm sure you already assumed that huh?

I did. Duh.

Correct. It was against Frito-Lay, so I guess there is grounds for this lawsuit.

Actually, no. This is much like the ongoing Beach House case with Volkswagen. There is a law that states a company cannot recreate a song without permission if it comes sonically close to the original. They could win this. But I kind of agree with others in here - these guys are getting fucking annoying.

Instead of using all of their energy whining, they could use it to make more music!

How is this whining, though? Million-dollar companies don't want to pony up the money to pay for the rights to the Black Keys songs, so they rip them off. The Black Keys don't see a cent of work they made. It's fundamentally not right and they have the right to express that in court. There's no whining going on.

hahaha I literally said out loud "There's no way the Black Keys cleared their music for this crap" the first time I saw that Pizza Hut commercial.

Correct! See above statement - it's not whining. They filed a case and the press made a big deal of it. It's not like they're out in the streets complaining.
