Coldplay have achieved massive success in the wake of the release of their fourth studio album 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends', coming in at #1 in the UK off just three days of sales, moving 300,000 copies, which was more than the next 5 charting albums combined. But their success has been undermined by claims by Brooklyn band 'Creaky Boards' that Coldplay ripped off one of their songs, ironically called 'The Songs I Didn't Write'.
The band have posted a clip on Youtube which compares the similarities between that song and Coldplay's chart-topping 'Viva La Vida'.
They even claim that Chris Martin may have been in the audience at one of their shows back in October 2007.
"We were flattered when we thought we saw Chris Martin in the crowd that night. He seemed pretty into it. Maybe too into it," they state in the video.
However, a Coldplay representative has denied the claims, stating that the song was written and demoed back in March 2007.
