Ohio rockers The Black Keys have had a burger at a popular restaurant chain named in their honor.

Umami Burger’s Akron Burger, named after the “Gold On The Ceiling” hitmakers’ hometown, consists of a beef patty topped with processed American cheese Velveeta, the eatery’s secret sauce, yellow mustard, chopped onions and pickles.

Fans who order the $13 gourmet creation will also be making a donation to charity – $1 of each meal will benefit The Black Keys Alfred McMoore Memorial Endowment Fund, a non-profit organization which supports arts programs for the mentally ill in the Akron community.

The Akron Burger will be available to customers starting July 1.

The rockers aren’t the only musicians to land such a food honor – bosses at pizza chain Two Boots created a pie in tribute to Animal Collective last year, while their menu also boasts pizzas named after Slayer, Dr. John and jazz icon Charlie Parker.
