Culturally irrelevant rock band Weezer sued Miller, the King of Beers on Friday for unlawfully using the their image in print ads to promote beer.

Okay, Weezer, that first album with the "Sweater Song" and "Buddy Holly" on it is a rock classic, full of enough great song for me to overlook the fact that your lead singer's response to becoming a huge rock star was to swear off sex and try to find himself. I can even forgive the most recent, totally lackluster Weezer album.  But suing a beer company is taking things too damn far.

I know you're all sensitive and wear important designer eyeglasses and stuff, but it's beer! Surely you're not so emo you don't like beer?

Say it isn't so, Weezer!

Also of note: Mentioned in the suit is the fact that Weezer appeared in the magazine ads with "other bands and musical performers with whom [Weezer] do not wish to be associated in any advertisement"

Who those bands and perfomers are remains a mystery, but apparently, Weezer is too damn good for them.
