NEW YORK (AP) - The Black Keys are remaining vigilant when it comes to sound-a-like songs.

The Nashville duo is suing Pinnacle Entertainment in New York federal court. Drummer Patrick Carney and singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach say the casino owner commissioned a song that sounds like their hit "Howlin' For You" for a commercial advertising two of its Louisiana properties. They are asking a judge for an injunction and compensation.

The Keys recently settled lawsuits against Pizza Hut and Home Depot over similar charges. Terms of those settlements were not released.

A message left with the band's representatives Wednesday was not immediately returned.

The Keys are up for five trophies at next month's Grammy Awards and Auerbach also has been nominated for producer of the year.
