SONG STEALING

The U.S. Air Force just pulled their Super Bowl commercial, which, according to the White Stripes, used the music from "Fell in Love With a Girl" without their permission.

And apparently Men At Work's Colin Hays appropriated elements of the Australian folk song "Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree" when penning the '80s smash "Down Under."

Is nothing sacred? Nope, which leads us to part four, due later today...
