Is One Direction's New Song Too Similar to Def Leppard's Old One?
Should Def Leppard pour a little litigation on?
The biggest boy band in the world has a new song. And it’s more than a little similar to one of the biggest hits of the ’80s.
Fans have already put together a ton of side-by-side comparisons, and while we’re strictly armchair musicologists, we do have to say they sound more alike than different.
An unnamed source told the Mirror, “Everyone is staying silent at this stage but it’s clear the two songs sound alike – which has been enough for Def Leppard’s aides to pose questions to their legal team.”
