We'd ask Justin, but who are we kidding, he had no part in the making of this song …

First it was Pharrell and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Then it was Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." Now, a grand story of musical theft comes from Justin Bieber and his army of writers, including Skrillex, on the hit single "Sorry."

Apologizing doesn't look like it's going to cut it this time. 

The current accusations come from an American indie-pop band by the name of White Hinterland. In a lengthy Facebook post, the act explains it reached out to various teams after the alleged theft of the track "Ring the Bell" was noticed. No one seemed to care, and further legal action was necessary to be compensated fairly.

Skrillex, one of the many writers on the track, doesn't buy it. He took to his Twitter to show the world how he created the lyrical ingredient and 'prove' the team didn't steal from anyone or anything.



But, that doesn't necessarily negate the similarities. At all. He knows this, or at least should. Just because you create something some other way than the original doesn't completely disregard the fact that the two parts sound exactly the same. 

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

It's not uncommon for things to sound alike, this is, after all, a market that's being flooded with new content by the second — and with the Internet now involved as heavy as it is, the likelihood of overlap is growing by the day. It's possible the similarities would have gone unnoticed, or just forgotten about altogether.

For what it's worth, Diplo — long time collaborator and inseperable BFF to both Skrillex and Justin Bieber — threw in his two cents to TMZ, and says that was likely the case: Somebody probably ripped it off and forgot to tell another person. He think the team will settle out of court and let the short term memory of fans do the rest to put it all behind them.

We'd be interested to hear Justin's side of the whole debacle, but let's be honest, everyone knows he probably has very little to do in the creation of anything 'his.' He's probably as clueless as his violent and bullshit fans are …
