Boy band One Direction have been accused of ripping off the Clash on their new single ‘Live While We’re Young’.
We don’t really mind this kind of thing. Pop music is full of nicks and the riff in question was maybe borrowed by the great Mick Jones for the Clash song.
What do you think?
Does it matter? Should someone cough up to the Clash or the Sharks or whoever wrote the riff!
Mick Jones is a genius and One Direction are a very successful boy band who don’t write songs and wont even know where the riff came from…does that matter?
In two years will anyone care who One Direction are…
