Band Calls Metallica Song Theft Reports A Lie 2017 In Review

Band Calls Metallica Song Theft Reports A Lie was a top 17 story of April 2017: Metallica made headlines late last week when several media outlets reported that they were served with a cease and desist letter claiming a song on their latest album was copied from a track from the 1980s metal group Incubus.
