Radiohead Sues Lana Del Rey For Copyright Infringement

The songs share a similar — though common — chord progression.

Radiohead is suing singer Lana Del Rey, claiming her song “Get Free” is a ripoff of their 1992 hit “Creep.”

Del Rey confirmed in a tweet that she was facing a lawsuit:

The songs share a similar — though common — chord progression.

Radiohead previously faced a lawsuit over “Creep” due to similarities with The Hollies’ 1974 song “The Air That I Breathe,” which was written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood. The songs also shared a similar chord progression.

After an out-of-court settlement, Hammond and Hazlewood were listed as co-writers of “Creep” on Radiohead’s Pablo Honey album, Pitchfork reported. Radiohead also had to pay royalties to The Hollies.
