Coldplay reportedly accused by Rage Against The Machine of Plagiarism!!


Recommended Posts

The legendary band, Rage Against The Machine, have reportedly accused Coldplay of stealing a large portion from their hit song 'Killing in The Name'.


They reported that the Coldplay song 'Postcards From Far Away', from the Prospekts March EP, contained large chunks of material from their hit song.


Martin denies this accusation however, although it is clear that almost the entirety of 'Killing in The Name' was copied by the English group, and tranfigured by Martin into an 'unoriginal' piano version.


You can hear each track here:
