Wow. I don’t know how Boys Like Girls is getting away with this one. The chorus of their recently released track “Love Drunk” sounds just like The Killers‘ 2004 dance floor jam “Somebody Told Me”.  Have a listen:

The Killers – “Somebody Told Me” (2004)
Boys Like Girls – “Love Drunk” (2009)

    It’s the same chords. It also sounds like !3oh3!’s Don’t Trust Me.

    Not just the same chords but it sounds like almost the same everything.

    How /are/ they getting away with that? Or are the Killers just not wanting into a huge thing with it?

    Boys Like Girls ‘Contagious”s intro sounds very similar with Bowling for Soup ‘High School Never Ends’

    Boys Like Girls are terrible, so leveling such a charge at them doesn’t seem unfair.

    Wow, pop music is becoming (or has been for awhile) so derivative! All you have to do these days to make a hit is copy someone. That’s such a flagrant rip.

    I’m a big fan of that Band of Horses track but I don’t really hear the similarity in “Decode”
