It seems like a bad idea to pick a fight with Spider-Man, Wolverine and the rest of the Marvel Universe, but that's exactly what Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters are doing, as the band is suing the comic book giant for copyright infringement. The band alleges that Marvel used "substantial excerpts" of their songs "Best of You" and "Free Me" as the music for the trailer of the new animated series Wolverine and the X-Men. You can watch the trailer here, and it's pretty obvious that the Foos are used to soundtrack the cartoon's preview. The series' producers First Serve International, Toonz Animation India and First Serve Toonz were also named on the lawsuit, with the Foos' seeking unspecified damages. We're guessing the Foo Fighters just blew their chances of being on the soundtrack to The Punisher 2.
