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.

    This isn’t a rip off. It just sounds like a bad formulaic hard rock. There’s hundreds of songs that sound like this. I think DL are embarrassing themselves by saying this is a copy of PSSOM.

    Are you kidding me? All that’s similar is the beat during the chorus. I’m not a fan of One Direction but there is no problem with this. And yes, I am a fan of Def Lep.

    Many of Kiss ‘s songs over the years have followed nearly every trend…it seems to have worked for ’em though…
