I'm almost dizzy from all the irony of a white band that got famous from making blues music suing others for copyright infringement.

You could make a case for virtually every song ever created is a 'ripoff' of something else. That's kind of how music works.

Of course there's a fine line to balance but still...

led zeppelin too

their first two albums were basically just loud, heavy blues covers they tried to pass off as original songwriting. compare the songwriting credits on the original vinyls to what you see on the CD reissues after they got sued.

Maybe the Black Keys are just smarter than all of us, and they realize their music has no substance whatsoever so they are trying to get every last dime before they slip off into irrelevancy.

I'm an old school White Stripes fan what can I say.

Well this isnt a lawsuit on other bands..this is when a beer commercial makes a song that sounds just like Nirvana's "smells like teen spirit" and changes one note of the bass line and the ringing guitar part..just a bit....but you know what it is trying to be. That particular song was used in ESPN highlights..radio shows..just a sad ripoff.

Didn't see that... that's completely different and justified...
