Did Lana Del Rey's 'Get Free' rip off Radiohead's 'Creep'?

Radiohead is suing melancholic pop princess Lana Del Rey for allegedly ripping off their giant '90s hit "Creep" in her song "Get Free." Del Rey says she came up with the song on her own, and that even though she offered Radiohead 40 percent of the publishing rights, they demand 100 percent. Critics say no musician owns chord progressions, and point out Radiohead was sued by the Hollies over the similarities between "Creep" and "The Air That I Breathe." What do you think?

Consequence of Sound created a handy mashup of the two songs: listen and see what you think.

Del Rey insists she came up with the progression on her own—and in any event, musicians don't own the rights to chord progressions. 

#TeamRadiohead

But Radiohead fans say it's not just the progression. Her melody is way too similar to the one Thom Yorke sings on "Creep."

#TeamLana

Del Rey's fans clap back. Radiohead ripped off the song from the Hollies, and ended up giving them publishing rights after a lawsuit! Who's the real thief here?

 Radiohead fans say Del Rey is being ridiculous. She lifted everything from "Creep," progression and melody.
