Last week, Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing General Motors of re-recording the band's song, "It's a Shame About Ray," for a marketing campaign. The shame about Dando's lawsuit is that it may be a bit too late. The auto giant recently filed for bankruptcy.

According to BBC, the leader of the lemons is seeking damages and a portion of profits from the Chevrolet and Buick advertisement which ran in 2008. Check out the ad in question below, and compare it to Exhibit A:

Meanwhile, the band is readying for the release of its new album, VarshonsParsons, Wire, G.G. Allin and Leonard Cohen.
