According to the Toronto version of the National Post, Avril Lavigne is being accused of copying at least parts of her hit song "Girlfriend" from a 1970's punk band:
"This is not so much a Toronto-centric issue, but because Avril Lavigne often calls the city home and was born just two hours outside of it, we'll cut her a little slack.
Unfortunately for Ontario's pop princess, the 1970s band the Rubinoos are not as kind as PostedToronto. The U.S. songwriters behind the group allege Lavigne's hit single 'Girlfriend' is a ripoff of their 1979 track 'I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend'." Avril Lavigne and the Rubinoos
Youtube user bruman79 has posted a convenient side by side comparison of the two songs...
But don't both songs kind of sound like Ashley Simpson's "Boyfriend" off of her 2005 release "I Am Me"??
