Los Angeles, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – It’s game number three between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals as they battle to win the 2014 World Series title.  The Giants and Royals are tied 1-1.

In solidarity with their home team, radio stations in San Francisco vowed to ban the Grammy Award-winning song ‘Royals’ from the airwaves for the duration of the World Series.

‘Royals’ won for singer Lorde and song writer Joel Little the Grammy for Song of the Year at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles last January.

Today, Lorde and Little announced that they were filing a class-action law suit against the San Francisco radio stations for banning their song.

“Our song has nothing to do with the Kansas City baseball team, and neither are we into sports,” Lorde said, “so why are we being punished for something that we have nothing to do with?”

Little told reporters that they are suing for $10 Million which represents potential loss of revenue from the sales and exposure of their award-winning song. “How would Tony Bennett feel if radio stations in Kansas City started banning the song “I left My Heart in San Francisco?’ he asked.
