The Black Keys Honored By Fast Food Burger

Posted June 19th, 2014 @ 1:44pm

The Black Keys will be immortalized by a burger.

California based Umami Burger will debut The Black Keys' Akron Burger on July 1.  The burger is an-beef patty topped with Velveeta fondue, "secret sauce," yellow mustard, chopped onions, and pickles.

$1 from each burger sold will go to The Black Keys Alfred McMoore Memorial Endowment FundMcMoore was an Akron artist who battled schizophrenia.  The fathers of both Patrick Carney and Dan Auerbach befriended the man.  McMoore used to call and tell people their "black key was taking too long" (meaning that something was "off-center" or not quite right") and that's where the band got the idea for their name.  The fund is for the local nonprofit that helped McMoore deal with his mental health issues.
