Radiohead Are Suing Lana Del Rey And Her Fans Are Not Happy
“She was a voice for so many and we really love, appreciate, admire, and respect her for that.”
You can hear a comparison of the two songs here.
"I've been a huge fan of hers for almost six years," he said. "As Lana fan, I felt a need to defend her and her work. The easiest way to do that is by memes. Everybody on Twitter love memes and everybody can relate to them in some way. Actually, I was a little bit surprised when I saw how many likes and retweets my tweets have. To be honest, I can hear the similarities to 'Creep' but I'm pretty sure it's just the progression. 'Get Free' is one of my favorite tracks from her Lust For Life LP and it really makes me sad that the best track is being sued."
And across social media, Del Rey's fans flooded any social media associated with the band.
However, despite multiple Del Rey fans saying that their campaign against Radiohead was mostly humorous, Radiohead fans have hit back at the fandom.
But this hasn't sat well with fans of both the artists. Lian, a 19-year-old Del Rey and Radiohead fan from Greece, called out Radiohead on a supportive meme page.
"I saw the post from that Radiohead fan page and there were people who supported Radiohead's move on the matter. I felt surprised at people being in favor of some already super-successful multimillionaire band suing a young and relatively recent artist for having a song similar to theirs, which ironically enough was similar to an older one," he said.
"Come on, there are thousands of songs out there with the same chord progression and even melodies. 'Creep' had immense success, and to this day it's being listened [to] and acclaimed. I'm one of those who listens to this song extremely actively too. But going after an artist who created a similar song and asking 100% of the song's publishing profit is crazy. "
