Famed rock duo Hall & Oates is suing a Brooklyn-based cereal company over their cleverly named granola, Haulin’ Oats.

The suit, filed in Brooklyn federal court, alleges that the artisanal cereal company Early Bird is trying to capitalize on the rock group’s brand, according to the BBC. The case notes that several companies have tried to tie the “Man Eater” band to “oats-related products.”

The phonetically punny snack is made of maple syrup and oats and touted as a perfect base for a breakfast parfait. It costs $27 for three packets.

But if Early Bird has to retire Haulin’ Oats, we have some other band-inspired suggestions: Damien Rice Krispies, Korn Flakes, Modest Muesli, Apple Jack Whites, Cap’n Crunch and Tenille, Cream (of Wheat), Chuck Berrycrunch or The Almond Brothers.
