Last week, One Direction premiered their new song, "Best Song Ever," and it sounded kinda familiar to me. That's because it sounds a lot like a song from The Who called "Baba O'Riley." "Baba" came out in 1971, was a HUGE hit, and is arguably one of the greatest rock songs ever recorded, but the producer of "Best Song Ever" says the similarity between the two is a coincidence. Really? I don't know if I believe him.
Listen to both of them below. Did One D rip off one of the biggest rock bands of all time? Or is this just a big, old coincidence?
