Beck is being sued for making unauthorized changes to a Malibu property, which is a decidedly un-Rock and Roll way to trash a house.The musician is being sued by Til Schweiger, who played Hugo Stiglitz in Inglorious Basterds and owns the rental property. The damages to the house, Schweiger claims, totals to $40,571. The actor is also suing for back rent, which brings the grand total to $56,704.

The property went for $11,000 a month, and Beck lived in the house from 2010 to Feb. 2013.

Beck, on the other hand, is suing Schweiger for the rescinded security deposit, claiming that the house was already in terrible shape when he got there. Although, Curbed brings up a good point by asking why he stayed so long if the house was in such bad condition.

Oh, Beck. This was your one moment to trash a house like a true rock star, but you only tried to renovate a quaint seaside estate. Oh well.
