New Found Glory Claims One Direction’s ‘Steal My Girl’ Copies One of Their Songs

One Direction have a long history of very — too? — closely tributing their favorite artists. Most recently, the band almost had legal action taken against them by Def Leppard for borrowing chords from “Pour Some Sugar on Me” in their song “Midnight Memories,” and, before that, it was the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” that they were copying in “Live While We’re Young.”

Now, New Found Glory are alleging that they’ve been ripped off by One Direction.

The pop-punk band’s guitarist Chad Gilbert took to Twitter to call out the similarities between the main piano riff in their song “It’s Not Your Fault” and One Direction’s new track “Steal My Girl,” as Alternative Press points out.

“Props to the @onedirection “steal my girl” single for reworking the “it’s not your fault” piano part into a top 40 single. Let me get a cut,” he tweeted, before mocking One Direction’s fans and the track “What Makes You Beautiful.”
