Sampling is done ALL the time these days in subpar music, so this isn`t surprising... still, I think she needs to be sued so maybe she will stop making such bad music.

I doubt they will win the lawsuit. Queen lost their lawsuit against Vanilla Ice ripping of the melody to "Under Pressure" because there was one beat that was different. Besides the one phrase they are different lyrics. Perhaps the other group is doing this for publicity? I have never heard of them.

Her song mimicked the rhythm of the chorus. It`s true in that respect but the rest of the song sounds nothing like the other.

I can`t stand her but she doesn`t deserve to be sued over something so stupid.

Her music always sucked so why is everyone complaining about her turning to pop? As CW said, it was for more money and who would blame her for her flip flopping.

And she didn`t `turn` pop from punk. She is in no way shape or form punk

The only part that was the same was "Hey Hey, You You" and "I wanna be your.." You could find plenty of other songs that say the words "hey" and "you", etc. in them.

Plus, Avril`s song was better...which is painful to say--but that first song was boring as hell! She only turned to pop because it gets her more money, and honestly I don`t blame her.

Avril Lavigne rocks. She`s a little too girly girly now, but she`s still cool.

The only part that`s the same, via words and melody, is "Hey! Hey! You! You!". Besides that, it`s all good.

Funny that most of you haters are female. Well, guess what? I`m female and I like her.

Also, one of you said "I hope she dies". Um... we`re ALL gonna die someday, y`know.

These songs are NOTHING alike; get over it, outmoded 70`s band! Especially considering that folk and punk bands, SURPRISINGLY, use many of the same chord-progressions; it`s impossible NOT to do the same thing as somebody else when sticking so determinately to a particular genre, but the thing is, she`s NOT DOING THAT! There is not EVEN a recognizable chord-progression in her intro, and the one following is nowhere CLOSE to the original but pure, garden-variety poppy-punk, so how can they POSSIBLY claim plagiarism?

Everyone already knows that Avril Lavigne is a prime example of how horrible the music industry has become. She is probably the most fake person out there.

"Yeah, I`m fckin rock n roll because I flip the bird and spit at my fans, but my music is poppy bullsht that can only be marketed to 12 year olds."

I hate you Avril.

Hmmm does sound alot same.I know its easy to hear a song once or twice and later have it come back on you as writer even without you knowing it.I doubt it was on purpose,probably a subconcious thing.
Remeber George Harrison got sued and lost for "my sweet lord` sounding too much like "hes so fine" I seroiusly doubt George intentionally took the idea and melody,it just happens sometimes.

There is a similarity in the message and the line "hey hey you you", but other than that, the two songs are clearly different. Melodic chords are changed, and avril`s skanked it up. I don`t think that the lawsuit will win, but she`ll be careful about what she skanks up from now on.

"Newbert

the "hey hey you you" part is the same"

thank you captain obvious, i didn`t see that -_-

and lol yeah they`re pretty much the same for the hey hey you you, but like avril`s song is pretty original in itself, so copying one line shouldnt make much of a difference. and anyway who the hell even knew the first song -_-

I don`t see too much similarity, but I guess the chorus is quite similar. It COULD be a coincidence, but I don`t really care. She should get sued for the song being just plain annoying...

but I didn`t hate her. Now she just sucks.)

I mena i see the similarity in the hey hey you you part, but i dont see much else. I personally see it as different enough to be 2 different songs. Its like vanilla ice sampling a Queen song and not giving them credit then claiming his songs beat is slightly different. That was theft of the music, having the words "hey" and "you" cannot be sued over. Thats like if I made a song and said "Hell yeah!" in it, then getting sued by the metal band HELLYEAH, Sully from Godsmack, Stone cold steve austin and Rob Zombie. Gimme a break.

wat does it really matter? I mean, so many other popular artists out there have taken their ideas from other older songs, or even copied the whole thing (with their permission, i suppose...) and made it better. There are only so many catchy tunes out there to play with, only so many things to write about, and only so many words in the english language that make sense together. Plus, its not like anybody is listening to that other band anymore anyways. They should be happy that people in this generation still think the melody they came up with is catchy. And avril only really stole like one sentence, so the song people can go poo on themselves.

And stop beating avril up. Plenty of people i know like her in canada... She make me proud to be canadian. I like her music more now than before anyway. (I like it way better than hilary duff`s poo...)

I`m not saying I`m a big fan of hers, but they`re nuts. Other than the "hey hey you you", and the fact that they`re both songs, they have nothing in common. These losers need to go back to their minimum wage jobs and leave her alone.

I wanna be your boyfriend was also a song from The Ramones, and it`s vaguely similar to the one on here. I really don`t see a problem. I think it would also be more credible for the suers if they tried to sue earlier, it`s too late now.

It`s not just the "hey hey you you" bit. That could be a coincidence. But, c`mon, one`s titled "I want to be your boyfriend" and that is exactly what the other one is about, except girlfriend instead of boyfriend. She changed it enough so that she thought she wouldn`t be law suited, but she was wrong. Oh well, I hate her music anyway. I still can`t believe that that music video is the second most watched video on youtube. Just goes to show how f/ucked up the world can be.
