Alternative band Radiohead looks adamant that they’ll be suing pop star Lana Del Rey after accusing her of copying their hit song ‘Creep’.
It was just last that Thom Yorke made headlines after having a heated exchange with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters and now, the Brit singer looks certain to go down and dirty again by pointing to Lana Del Rey, suggesting that she ‘copied’ their hit song ‘Creep’ to write ‘Get Free’.
The news first surfaced on Pitchfork, but was later admitted by Lana herself on her Twitter account, which claimed to have offered Radiohead 40% of the song’s publishing rights, but they insisted 100% instead.
It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.

Ironically, Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ is also awfully similar to a song by The Hollies called ‘The Air That I Breathe’, which they were allegedly on the process of being sued for, before settling it out of court by making Mike Hazlewood and Mark Hammond as the co-writers of ‘Creep’.
So are you on #TeamThom or #TeamLana?
