Have My Chemical Romance Plagiarised The Zutons?

By Luke Lewis

Props to NME.COM user Erwin for leaving a comment on our recent MCR blog post, pointing out the striking similarity between Gerard Way and co's current single 'Na Na Na'..., and 'Zuton Fever', the opening track from The Zutons' 2004 debut album.



I'm guessing this is an unconscious echo, rather than a deliberate steal - I can't imagine MCR are big fans of Dave McCabe's mob. Even so, there's an uncanny correspondence between MCR's verse vocal line, and The Zutons' guitar riff. Don't you think?
