The Black Keys are howlin' mad.

The Ohio duo is suing Pinnacle Entertainment for allegedly using their song "Howlin' for You" in commercials for two of the company's casinos in Louisiana, Rolling Stone reports.

The lawsuit was filed in New York federal court and also names Manhattan Production Music, which makes music for commercial advertising.

According to the report, the Black Keys allege that music "substantially similar" to "Howlin' for You" was featured in a spot for the L'Auberge Casino. The suit also claims Pinnacle used "infringing music" in a commercial for another casino.

Last November, the Black Keys settled its lawsuits against Pizza Hut and Home Depot after alleging the companies wrongfully used the tunes "Gold on the Ceiling" and "Lonely Boy," respectively, in TV spots. However, no settlement details were released.
