LOS ANGELES — Rock band Buckcherry, Warner Music Group and Atlantic Recording will answer a civil complaint from the mother of a 16-year-old girl alleging that the musicians recruited the minor to film pornographic sex acts that the label later exploited for promotional purposes, reaping “huge profits,” the plaintiff said.

According to the complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the mother, whose name was not disclosed, alleged that the band recruited underage girls with a casting call placed on social networking site MySpace.com. The ad promised free alcohol, to be served at The Key Club in West Hollywood, Calif., the mother said.

The suit also names The Key Club as a defendant, alleging that the nightspot failed to check the girl’s ID, allowing the band to ply the minor with “shot after shot of Jagermeister.”

“The pornography that is captured on the three videos is only the tip of the iceberg of what occurred during the production,” the mother said.

The complaint also alleges that various other minors, who are not part of the suit, where served alcohol by the band and induced into performing sex acts on film, which later appeared on the Internet.

According to the complaint, the video, which the band and the labels sold to promote the song “Crazy Bitch,” depicts the minor plaintiff and another young woman having sex in the club’s bathroom.

The girl and her mother are suing the defendants for sexual assault, battery, invasion of privacy, emotional distress, negligence and sexual harassment for the events, which allegedly took place Oct. 23, 2005.
