defleppardgroupblue400 There is some controversy brewing as Def Leppard are allegedly looking into legal action against Pop group One Direction due to one of their songs, Midnight Memories, sounding very similar Def Leppard’s, Pour Some Sugar On Me.

“Music lawyers will routinely scour hits like this one to see if there is any evidence that a band has either copied or cleverly mimicked a Def Leppard song,” a source tells The Mirror. “These cases can often take weeks to sort out because we are not talking about peanuts here – the 1D album is selling millions and if the title track goes out as a single it will generate even more money.”

Listen to both songs below and pay special attention to chorus.

    If you really want to hear 1D rip someone off, be sure to compare their “Best Song Ever” beginning to The Who’s “Baba O’ Reilly” They have no shame in their theft.

    This shouldn’t come as a surprise, 1D has been ripping kids off since day 1–by falsely calling themselves musicians.

  • Greg on

    Just like five finger death punch ripping off ozzy ultimate sin in their lift me up song

  • Bob on

    What about “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Werewolves Of London”?

  • Lee on

    A lot of these rips are settled before legal action like sports/entertainers on whoopins & sexual escapades…..how this one escaped means the One Direction dudes think they can win.
