Avril Lavigne vs 70's punk band

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"??
