Hey (Hey), You (You)...

Power Pop/New Wave relics, The Rubinoos, are suing Avril Lavigne and another songwriter over Lavigne's hit, "Girlfriend", which they alleged is ripped off quite blatently from their own '70's non-hit, "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend".

While I agree that the Rubinoos have a pretty strong case, I still figure Jagger and Richards have enough money NOT go after the whole lot of 'em for infringing upon their classic, "Get Off My Cloud".

In the end, I still maintain that most lawyers simply don't understand how CULTURE works.

Hotcha! Hank
