Hall & Oates are going after this Rich Girl. 

Hall & Oates, the musical duo you might recognize for pop rock songs like “I Can’t Go for That” and “You Make My Dreams Come True,” is apparently unable to appreciate the value of a good food pun, despite the fact that their debut studio album was called Whole Oats.

According to Page Six, Daryl Hall and John Oates have decided to sue Early Bird, a Brooklyn-based granola company, for the decision to name one of its products “Haulin’ Oats.”

The suit, which reportedly references its plaintiffs as a “world famous” musical group that has “sold more albums that any other duo in music history,” accuses Early Bird founder Nekisia Davis of having unfairly profited from Hall and Oates’ “fame and notoriety.”

Hall & Oates has demanded that Davis change the name of her granola line and is seeking damages.

In response to the lawsuit, Early Bird issued a brief response: “Hall & Oates, say it isn't so.”
