Amid allegations that she blatantly ripped off 70′s band the Rubinoos, Avril Lavinge is under scrutiny for stealing another song.
Avril claimed there was no way she could have stolen the Rubinoos tune “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” to make her song “Girlfriend,” because she never heard their song before. Sheâ€™ll have a much harder time denying she stole Peaches’ song “I’m the Kinda.” It sounds suspiciously similar to Avril’s 2007 suck-job song “I Don’t Have to Try.” In an interview with InStyle Magazine, Avril listed the 2003 song as one of her top seven “songs that inspire.”
I guess it inspires the theft of intellectual property.
Take a listen and tell me what you think.
