Miley Cyrus Stole Song? - A Top Story This Week
The band listened to both tracks and realized the similarities themselves. "Scotty Doesn't Know" was recorded for the movie EUROTRIP, starring Matt Damon, which was released in 2004, and well in advance of Cyrus' "Rockstar", released in 2006.

The band also noticed something on the Billboard Magazine charts - "Scotty Doesn't Know" was at 75 while Ms. Cyrus was just starting to work her way up the charts - her song "Who Said" was at 92.
