    The corporate/musical battle between David vs. Goliath rages on.

    Representatives for Pizza Hut and The Home Depot have denied ripping off songs from The Black Keys for their recent ad campaigns. The group sued the companies earlier this year, claiming commercials from the two companies used elements of "Lonely Boy" and "Gold on the Ceiling." Those are big claims and they are often hard to prove. But The Keys are fightin' the good fight. Of course the corps. claim that the band is mistaken.

    Team Corporate America or Team Keys?
