Lana Del Ray Under Fire as Radiohead Decides to Sue!

Lana Del Ray Under Fire as Radiohead Decides to Sue!

Yea you read that right, the New York-native indie pop singer is being sued by Radiohead over copyright infringement. Though it is unclear whether it was the band or the publishers, Radiohead has entered a legal battle over the similarities between their hit song “Creep” and Lana’s new song “Get Free”. Lana herself admitted to the news via her Twitter account the other day.

Now we love both Lana Del Ray and Radiohead, but we have to admit that when you listen to “Creep” and then “Get Free” you can’t deny the similarities in the music itself. Listen to the two and see if you can hear it.

Though the similarities are fairly obvious, Lana Del Ray’s fans took to twitter to bash Radiohead with the hashtag #RadioheadIsOverParty. To be honest, they were pretty savage, but Radiohead fans also fought back.

While the debate can go on and on, what we think is absolutely hilarious is that Radiohead wasn’t the sole genius behind “Creep”. Turns out Radiohead was highly inspired by the 70s classic “The Air That I Breathe” by The Hollies… especially the chord progression haha. According to an article by TIME, “Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, [writers of the song], sued Thom Yorke et al. for copyright infringement. The liner notes of Radiohead’s Pablo Honey now credit Hammond and Hazlewood as co-writers of ‘Creep’ and Hammond and Hazlewood split royalties with the band”.

What do you think about this whole situation? Are you Team Lana or Team Radiohead? As for us, we plead the fifth; we’re Switzerland.
