    Default Coldplay accused of plagiarism

    The song they didn't write? Coldplay are accused of plagiarism by American band By Guy Adams in Los Angeles
    Thursday, 19 June 2008


    It was all going so predictably well. Coldplay's new album went straight to No 1 on Sunday, selling 300,000 copies in three days; concerts sold out; that iTunes ad was everywhere. Even their notoriously sniffy critics in the music press seemed, with the odd exception, unusually muted.



    Check out the utube video the "American Band" made - sounds like Coldplay ripped them off to me.

    Coldplay sucks
    It's no longer a dog whistle, it's a fucking trombone

    I dunno... lots of songs sound similar. Like that Amy Winehouse song.

    True, but this sounds like more than just a coincidence to me - I mean the Coldplay guy showed up at one of their shows when they played the song then suddenly he writes a song that sounds so similar?

    He stole it.

    Well, the guy said he thought Chris Martin was there, but who knows because "all British people look alike" -- lol

    Coldplay's about as fun to listen to, as chronic diarrhea. They stink about just as bad. :/

    yeah, my husband & i have been talking about this. it sounds quite a bit like both the satriani song & the creaky boards song. it'll be interesting to see what happens, but i wouldn't be surprised if they settled out of court like avril did with the rubinoos.
