Following a lawsuit claiming Avril Lavigne stole a chunk of a 1979 Rubinoos’ song for her recent hit ‘Girlfriend’ which sold some 2.6 million copies worldwide, now some fans of Peaches are claiming Lavigne’s song ‘I Don’t Have To Try’, which appears on ‘The Best Damn Thing’, is a rip-off of the track ‘I’m The Kind Bitch’.

YouTube videos depicting the connections between the two songs have received 1.4M views:
