Honestly, that del Rey song sounds pretty similar. But Radiohead have a few songs that are dangerously similar to songs that came before too, including Creep. And they dont need the money. This seems a bit out of character.

It's probably the label/publishers who pick up on it, run it by the band who say 'whatever sure' then let them go in hard. Though Nigel has said before in an interview that Thom is quick to see stuff as ripping him off that he doesn't really think is warranted. Either way, even if some feel it's reasonable this probably isn't gonna be a good look for them publicly.

Huh, I didn't know that about Thom. The Lana song is definitely similar, but I don't think it's an intentional ripoff and Radiohead are asking for 100% of the royalties which is total bullshit. LDR offered 40% which sounds fair to me.

is it possible that the Hollies legal guys have started this and Radiohead are part of it as co-writers

Yeah I'm not quite sure how it works. Given Radiohead have a percentage of the rights to Creep, they can probably sue for what they see fit and then are obliged to distribute the royalties between themselves and The Hollies/Albert Hammond. The press coverage all suggests it was the band's lawyers doing all this. I really wish they'd just taken 40% or a little more if they must - 100% is disproportionate.

I hope Lana enters the courtroom wielding the lightning-power of Odin to cleanse Radiohead clean and that the matter is rightly crumpled up and thrown into the courtroom trashbin.

The only way Radiohead can win this is if they hire Azealia Banks as their lawyer like right now.
