Radiohead Deny Lana Del Rey Lawsuit

Pop star Lana Del Rey says she's being sued by Radiohead for copying their breakthrough single, Creep.

We've reached out to representatives of Del Rey and will update this post accordingly if and when we hear back.

"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of past year with Lana Del Rey " s representatives", the statement reads. But 100%? That seems pretty greedy of Radiohead, considering some would argue that "Creep" is more similar to "The Air That I Breathe" than "Get Free" is to "Creep". She attests that she offered the band 40 percent of the publishing rights to settle the matter, but that the band "will only accept 100". "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court", she added.

Milner made no mistake with the spot-kick as he dispatched the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford with confidence. The breakthrough came five minutes after the half-hour mark when Liverpool were awarded a penalty by referee Bobby Madley.

The English rock band allege Del Rey lifted the melody and chord progression of "Creep", arguably one of the band's best-known songs, on her latest album. The dispute is over similarities between her song and Radiohead's "Creep". Hammond and Hazlewood also split royalties with the band. I just want to let you know ... that I am really going to strive for [those sentiments], even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record ...

These situation nearly always involve only melodies and chord progressions, and not other elements, less definable, elements of songs, which would open up a whole more lawsuits. She even said that this legal drama could force her to cut the song from the album. Ever since the estate of Marvin Gaye successfully sued over similarities between Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up", and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", there's been an uptick in similar legal action and settlements.
