Pop punker Avril Lavigne is being sued for stealing her mega hit "I
Wanna Be Your Girlfriend."
In 1979 the band Rubinoos released "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend," which has striking similarities to Avril's hit
This week, the bands founder Tommy Dunbar filed a suit not only against
Lavigne, but the songwriters and publishing company as well. Lavigne's
spokesperson said that although the songs sound completely different,
they would consider settling out of court.
