U2 accused of stealing number one hit, 'The Fly': Compare them yourself...

U2 have been accused of stealing a song for their iconic 1991 album, 'Achtung Baby'.

And this is not just any song, we're talking about 'The Fly' - a UK number one hit. And it is British singer-songwriter Paul Rose who is said to have filed a lawsuit in New York City yesterday claiming that the band used elements from his song ‘Nae Slappin’ for ‘The Fly’.

Billboard suggests that Rose has alleged that U2 heard his demo tape after they signed to Island Records in the late ’80s. He is said to be suing for $5 million (£4 million) in damages and a songwriting credit.
