Rock Band Accuses GM of Musical Hit and Run

6/5/2009 5:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The folks at General Motors might need a bigger bailout -- if they lose a new lawsuit over music they allegedly stole from The Lemonheads.



It's all over a lawsuit filed today in Federal Court in Los Angeles, in which Evan Dando -- the lead singer of the band -- claims GM never got his permission before using his song "It's a Shame About Ray" in several GM Memorial Sales Event commercials back in 2008.

Dando is suing for unspecified damages -- which is funny because GM has no money to give away.

So yeah, Dando ... good luck with that.

I think The Lemonheads should sue everyone who has never heard of them, and they'll make 789436545649832862592346 TRILLION dollars.

Vess von Ruhtenberg! Indy's favorite son! The Indianapolis gold-standard for scenesters! My guy!

Actually, I don't know him...but i'm pretty sure that's him and his circular sunglasses. It's certainly not Evan Dando. Yeah, that's f*ckin Vess Ruhtenberg.

So... yeah, you guys might want to get next to something a little more accurate. I'm just sayin...

Good work, as usual.
