Creaky Boards Accuses Coldplay of Plagiarism

Coldplay recently released their new album, Viva La Vida, and, as is no surprise, it shot straight to number one. Now, however, there is a little known band that has accused them of plagiarism. There's a good chance you have never heard of Creaky Boards - I hadn't either, until I discovered that they have a song - a song they were performing over a year ago - that sounds eerily like "Viva La Vida." The song is called "The Songs I Didn't Write."

The lyrics are different, mind you, but the melody is ridiculously the same. The band remembers noticing Chris Martin in the crowd when they were performing at a concert in New York last year and feeling crazy flattered about it.

So you decide: are these guys simply trying to get their 15 minutes, or do they have a legitimate case?
