Avril Does It Again!!!!

The alleged song thief does it again!

We try to avoid her "music" as much as possible, so we didn't catch on to this until it was just pointed out to us.

It has been brought to our attention by an astute reader that the beginning of Avril Lavigne's song I Don't Have To Try - off her new album The Best Damn Thing sounds IDENTICAL to I'm The Kinda by a true Canadian artist, Peaches - off her album Fatherfucker.

The first 20 seconds of Avril's song are a carbon copy - musically and thematically - of the Peaches track.

We don't care enough about Avril to make a side-by-side comparison.

If somebody gets around to doing this….let us know!

Update:

Thanks Jamie!

    i haven't read past posts about this but just so everyone knows, the "i don't like your girlfriend" song is identical almost to a song by a group called The Party that I listened to in around '91. The song was Hey You I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend. Guaranteed whoever wrote the avril song knew about The Party song. Such a copycat!!!! Disgusting!

  22. poopy says – reply to this


    22

    of all the people to rip off you're gonna step to peaches? dumb bitch. good luck– the only people more fierce and fantastic than peaches herself are peaches' fans.

  28. Katie C says – reply to this


    28

    Wow, it really is a carbon copy.

    I love Peaches and I'm neutral on Avril, but that's really shitty. I would only hope that she didn't know that it was copied and that someone else is responsible for it.

    GET OVER HER

    FATTIE WHY ARE U SO JEALOUS OF AVRIL?

    She's the best right now, u wanted or no…

    Ugh… can't say I'm surprised. She rips off another artist, and a Canadian no less! Who's next, Joni Mitchell?

  33. liz says – reply to this


    33

    avril's song is like… peaches.. then gob… (for the moment)… and just her squeaking and whining about how cool she is.. horrible.. horrriiible….

  34. CharLie says – reply to this


    34

    I heard the song now, AND IT TOTTALY DOESN'T SOUNDS LIKE AVRIL'S ONE F-R-E-A-K.

    And besides in that was true, she will be a "beat copier" F-R-E-A-K.

    AVRIL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. puhlease says – reply to this


    35

    oh come on don't try to stand up for that. most people don't actually copy songs believe it or not. but if they do cover or sample– not RIP OFF– a song, they get rights and give credit.

  36. tara says – reply to this


    36

    And she copies Alanis like no other…. all her movements and even the way she sings some songs are EXACTLY like Alanis. Very very frustrating considering I love Alanis more than life.

  37. Hollywud Babylon says – reply to this


    37

    Peaches could kick Avril's ass with both hands tied behind her back AND blindfolded… see if you can make that happen, Perez.

  38. gimme a break says – reply to this


    38

    okay, so people trying to stand up for her– that's really sad. if you like her music, maybe you should start listening to the people who made it first, so you can give credit where credit is due, something avril doesn't like to do. if you wanna cover a song or sample a hook then why don't you at least get the rights to it or… oh, i don't know, give some credit? or write your own songs. in avril's defense, i bet she wasn't the one who ripped it off, i bet it was the slew of people that have to do her writing– i mean, copying– for her.

  39. Brit says – reply to this


    39

    fuck you perez you're a fucking hater. leave avril alone. that shit sounds nothing alike. stop rubbing up on paris' cunt and get some fucking real news you fat slob. let's talk about you steal pictures and steal your friends' money for drugs. fucking fat slob. go get a coke habit quick. fat ass cunt

  40. t. says – reply to this


    40

    "carbon copy" is a stretch, fatso.

    similar, sure. strongly influenced, even. but the beat pattern isnt even the same, let alone the melody.

    she's said in interviews before its one of her favourite songs, so she's clearly not trying to hide anything.

    you're such a journalist, perez. so fact-based and accurate. love it.

    omg totally looks like she is cutting herself in the picture

  43. Lor says – reply to this


    43

    You can find both songs on YouTube.
    They sound VERY similar. What a fake.. I can't stand Lavigne. I'm so embarassed she's Canadian! :(

  44. Fatherfucker says – reply to this


    44

    The beat is the same. However Peaches' voice is smoother and sexier.
    As soon as Avril's voice starts it sounds like a whiney little bitch, ironically… or not.

  45. liza says – reply to this


    45

    it looks like she is cutting herself…probably because every1 knos she is a LIAR….Brit, LEAVE PEREZ ALONE..he is a genius okay

  46. Brit says – reply to this


    46

    I have no idea how this happened, but somehow I ended up with Brit's name and email instead of a blank sheet. Might want to look into this Perez.

  47. Angela says – reply to this


    47

    What a fucking CUNT!!! Peaches is the shit — if I were her, I would throw a bloody tampon at Avril. Poor excuse for a musician.

  48. Jane says – reply to this


    48

    Similar, yes . . . the same no.
    The beat on Avril's goes
    1-2-3-4
    1-2-3-4-5
    The beat on Peaches goes
    1-2-3
    1-2-3
    and then progresses to
    1-2-3-4
    1-2-3
    Not the same . . .

    wow…this is pretty ridiculous…its exactly the same…good luck explaining this one Avril

  53. Meg says – reply to this


    53

    Holy shit! It is the same…fucking thief

  54. v says – reply to this


    54

    Look up both the videos on youtube and it's pretty clear that Avril is, to what seems like a pretty high degree, ripping off/trying to sound like Peaches.

    I don't care if it's her favorite song or not, she still copied someone else's work without giving them credit. If she was a true Peaches fan, wouldn't she want to acknowledge Peaches contribution to the song? And anyone who has been to college in the past five years knows what a serious offense that is - it's a textbook definition of plagarism and, in that setting, would result in a failure or expulsion. . .

    Why does that make it any different for a pop star?

  55. Par Gell says – reply to this


    55

    Why do you hate Avril so much? Is it because Paris Hilton told you to hate her because Paris used to date Avril's husband and I guess dumped Paris for hotty Avril. You didn't mention that Girlfriend went to number 1 and her new album went platinum.

    that sad f*** perez is gonna give her a hard time no matter what she does.

    I'm sure if this spotlight was shone on any one else you could find as many problems.

    sure the songs sound the same, but he's only highlithgting avril's folly.

  66. Kel Kel says – reply to this


    66

    I enjoy the comment by "Jane" where she points out that the beats on the 2 songs are 'similar' but not the 'same'. Isn't that the same argument that Vanilla Ice used when he said he didn't steal the beat for "Ice Ice Baby" from Queen's song 'Under Pressure' ?

    She's completely shameful! Not just because of this, since you showcased that interview of her being a complete bitch Perez I've hated her. She's a complete embarrassment to Canada.

    72

    If you ask me Canadian princess Nelly Furtado copied Peaches "Operate", it sounds a lot like Maneater. Shame on Nelly.

  73. Kel Kel says – reply to this


    73

    The beats are not the same?? Really?
    Didn't Vanilla Ice say the same thing when he was explaining that he didn't steal Ice Ice Baby from Queen's "Under Pressure" ?

    Of course they're not the exact same! She's get in big trouble for that. But to change them just a teensy weensy bit is still wrong and shows a lack of creativity in not being able to come up with it on your own. Adding an extra beat to a pre-existing song doesn't make it creative.

  74. christie says – reply to this


    74

    thats so fucked up, i hope she gets in trouble for all this shit- and i love Peaches!

  75. Nick says – reply to this


    75

    The beat is very, VERY similar…but the bottom line…Avril's "I don't have to try" sucks! unlike Peaches' "I'm The Kinda".

  76. cyril says – reply to this


    76

    avril is a kid, much younger than virtually all of us.

    she deserves a bit on leniency. how would you feel if you had cameras, and fat, obese, disgusting bloggers bothering you all the time? Just because they couldn't fit their grotesque corpulence into a photo with you.

  77. jodie says – reply to this


    77

    Talentless Avril lost me a few years ago when I heard her say "That's so gay." Sorry girl. You'll never make it as a singer in the US if you're so disrespectful to the gay community.

    hilary doesn't sing or write her music - she lip synchs all of her"live performances" and all of her vocals have been tweaked via ProTools - why doesn't the media talks about her being a fraud - that being said - she is still one of the nicer girls out there

    u no these days everything is recycled,almost everyone is re doing stealing an getting songs wrote for them,like on the real its one of her albums out of many that has had contrevoursy,im not even an avril fan,but i tell it like it is,settle down,avril do your thang uve had more number ones then most an stuck around,the hate had to come to u sometime,now its just all about how u handle it,peace

    silly peaches tryin to jump that avril gravy train.
    HAHAHA.
    right.

    poor avril. Why don't her people steal songs from pop singers in remote locations like iceland or russia or peru … but noOOOOooo… Instead they steal from a fellow countrywoman?? Brazilliant. Have they not heard of the world wide internets?
    The avril lavigne gravy train must be payin' minimum wage.. cuz these song writers aren't trying very hard. Hello sweatshop.

  83. joey says – reply to this


    83

    ok.. so you don't like her.. great

    let me know when your album is coming our Perez..

    Also how many songs are truly original? Every rap/hip hop artist who raps over someone elses music.. or samples other artists music or words just to make a buck….

    It's to the point now.. where artists rip themselves off *sugar ray anyone*

    So you hate avril..

    i'm sure you've heard of metabolife..
    and herbalife..

    have you ever considered get-a-life.

  84. cyril says – reply to this


    84

    avril's done a lot for canadian music, a lot more than most.

    perez just picks on her because he likes a few people (like Mika, who's great) and despises everyone else who doesn't pay attention to him.

    he's become a sick self promotion train. he's no better than fox news.

  85. Jane says – reply to this


    85

    Hahahaha "Kel Kel"- yes that is similar to the Vanilla Ice argument. So funny . . . when he was like mine goes "ding ding ding" whatever haha. I remember watching that on VH1.
    But still, after listening to both songs a few times I am going to stand behind my previous statement regarding the beat. Not the same . . .
    I am going to have to let Avril off of the hook on this one, but as far as her other 2 plagerism incidents . . . she's totally guilty. She's incredibly bratty too.

    bitch needs a new weave! blah oh and I'm sure she has talent somewhere…. hahahahah who am I fooling? haha

  87. Candice says – reply to this


    87

    Is anyone surprised that this bitch can't write and steals half of her shit? First of all she has called herself a punk. That should have been your first clue to avoid this poseur. And then we have to look at the pop music industry as a whole. A lot of popular music today is completely ripped off. Nothing is original anymore. Hollywood is desperate for hit movies and the same for these popstars. Music is at an all time low these days. And when we celebrate useless cunts like Avril and Britney this is what we get. Avril is not the only one out there that is unoriginal and there are far worse problems like people who can't sing live. And yet we point fingers at the ones caught in the act but say nothing about Beyonce and JLO doing it. Fuck pop Music!

  88. Melit says – reply to this


    88

    First, both songs are bad..so she must have really been hard up to rip a song that is terrible.
    Second, I download both of them when I read this and they are similar. The beat is a little [emphasis on little] different and there is some stupid clapping in Avril's version, but the general concept is the same I think.
    Third, how likely is it that 2 [!] songs on her cd are similar to other peeps songs and she will STILL claim they aren't.
    Lastly, her voice is VERY annoying. You kno, it reminds me of a dog screaming when it's paw gets stepped on.

    to be fair, avril shouldn't get slammed on 'girlfriend' the band (…?) who wrote 'boyfriend' actually ripped it off of the stones.

    bitch please. I would like to see any one of you try to out perform her…or better yet, try to out write her. Most artists don't even attempt to write their own music. #uck all you haters! Why don't we harp on the black eyed pees? most of their songs are plagiarized..i have yet to see a single song of theres that is not sampled from another one. and Perez, what is your damn problem with Avril? She is far more successful than you will ever be. stop hating!

  100. Ayla says – reply to this

    I hate her so much. I bet this is just the beginning or people coming forward after being ripped off.
