I can't believe it! One Direction ripped off "Baba O' Riley" which is my favorite song by The Who. I'm talking about the intro to "Best Song Ever". It sounds like they took the synth/piano intro from "Baba O' Riley" and modified with a computer in a failed attempt to cover up their plagiarism.
Apprently The Who planned on suing them and getting the Youtube video removed. How did the Directioners respond? They made #DontTouchBestSongEver a top trend and made violent threats against The Who. Sadly,they backed down on the lawsuit.
In my opinion 1D are worse then Justin Bieber. At least Bieber didn't plagerize other people's songs. The UK gave us Black Sabbath. Ireland gave us My Bloody Valentine. Sadly,both countries are responsible for One Direction's existence. They really should issue a formal apology for One Direction's existence. It would help a lot.
