It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing - I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) January 7, 2018

Musician Owen Pallett observed that Radiohead's allegations are most likely to be based on the chord progression in the song's respective verses.However, he noted, the case might not be the result of "Radiohead sitting around feeling annoyed about a stolen chord progression, this just might be their lawyers being lawyers."

Wow

If Radiohead are claiming ownership to I-III-IV-iv, we should go through Radiohead’s catalogue and litigate their own lifts https://t.co/plqA5s4w2e— waluigi: my wah (@owenpallett) January 7, 2018

Interestingly, Radiohead themselves were successfully sued by The Hollies over Creep's similarities to The Air That I Breathe.Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood are now listed as co-writers for the song, and split royalties with the band.Radiohead have yet to respond to Del Rey's claims.
