U2 Seeks To End Lawsuit Claiming They Stole 'The Fly'

U2 asked a U.S. judge on Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit by a British songwriter and guitarist who claimed that the band lifted large parts of one of his works for a song on its 1991 blockbuster album "Achtung Baby." The song, "Nae Slappin" was written by Paul Rose in 1989 and he claims U2 used his song idea in their 1991 hit 'The Fly' from U2's album 'Achtung Baby.' You may be able to hear similarities between the two songs but do you think Paul Rose actually has a case against U2 or do you think the judge should throw it out? Take a listen below.
