LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- The rock group Weezer has filed suit in Los Angeles against the Miller Brewing Co. over a series of magazine advertisements.

TMZ.com said that the "Make Believe" rockers filed the suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court last Thursday, alleging the brewing company used the Weezer name in a series of Rolling Stone advertisements without the band's permission.

Filed by Weezer's Brian Bell, Rivers Cuomo, Scott Shriner and Patrick Wilson, the lawsuit also names the production company and the advertising agency behind the 2004 ad campaign as co-defendants.

In a reference to possible financial compensation for the ads, the court documents filed by the rockers claims they have been "damaged in an amount ... believed to be in the millions of dollars."
