Compare Tom Petty and the Red Hot Chili Peppers latest smash and make your mind up.

Anyone else recognise a couple of songs that are too close for comfort?

Of course its a borrowing, even a plagiarism - its the same tune
Rick Rubin produced both records
John Frusciante has used similar 'borrowings' before: and at one point he dresses like Tom Petty in the video
 - the question is - is it invalid to do it!
