The frontman for the band The Lemonheads, Evan Dando, is sueing GM and their ad agency Asche & Spencer Music, Inc. Dando claims GM violated his copyrights by using the song “It’s a Shame About Ray” in a 2008 advertising campaign.
“The Lemonheads are an American alternative rock band, formed in 1986 by singer/guitarist Evan Dando, who has been the only constant member.
The Lemonheads’ popularity grew in 1992 with the album It’s a Shame about Ray which was produced, engineered, and mixed by The Robb Brothers (Bruce Robb, Dee, and Joe), followed by a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Mrs. Robinson”, which eventually became one of the band’s most successful singles to date. ”
