Cast your mind back to the year 2015, just before the launch of Fallout 4. The video that we've embedded above was one of the game's main advertisements, and we happen to think it's pretty cool - especially for a live action ad. However, almost two years later, singer and songwriter Dion is suing Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media over the commercial's use of his music.

According to The Wrap, the 77-year-old musician reckons that his song, titled The Wanderer, shouldn't be used to help sell such a product. Basically, Dion's argument is that the ad features "repeated homicides in a dark, dystopian landscape, where violence is glorified as sport," and he doesn't want his work associated with that.

Ignoring the fact that he's a bit late to the party with this one, Dion supposedly seeks damages in excess of $1 million due to "potential loss of goodwill from being associated with the immoral images". Yikes.

The lawsuit also reads "the killings and physical violence were not to protect innocent life, but instead were repugnant and morally indefensible images designed to appeal to young consumers." Words which have, rather unsurprisingly, annoyed fans of the open world role-playing release. ZeniMax, meanwhile, is yet to comment.

It's a shame really, because we thought The Wanderer was one of the best songs on Fallout 4's radio. Banger.
