One Direction Accused of Copying The Clash Subscribe | Send Chelsea a Tweet! | Follow Hollywire! |

It's boy band update time! So, you guys is One Direction really in trouble for a little copyright infringement!? That's the most recent drama surrounding their new single, 'Live While We're Young' -- and I've got all the details here!

Oh boy — it's another case of you stole my music! Social media was set a blaze this weekend by fans of the legendary punk band The Clash — who are claiming the opening melody of 1D's new single sounds too much like the classic 1982 track 'Should I Stay or Should I Go!'

While no one from either bands' camp has commented on the topic — it will be interesting to see how this all plays out, especially since it's fans of the punk band that are upset, and so far not the band itself. So do you think the two songs sound alike? Could 1D have really ripped off The Clash, or more likely, did the boys receive permission to copy the opening riff to 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go!?!
