by JT

Did the boys from One Direction steal from 80s hair band, Def Leppard? The chorus of the group's new song "Midnight Memories" has a hook that is similar to Def Leppard's classic "Pour Some Sugar on Me."

According to reports, Def Leppard had asked its lawyers to look into allegations that "Midnight Memories" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me" bear striking similarities. However, Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell, the band's guitarists  have confirmed that they will not be pursuing legal action. Listen to both of the songs for yourself and you be the judge.
