10. Coldplay Vs Joe Satriani
When guitarist extraordinaire Joe Satriani heard the new Coldplay song Viva La Vida, he was rather taken aback as he thought the song sounded rather similar to his own instrumental, If I Could Fly. Satriani took legal action, but the case was ultimately dismissed and it's thought that there was an out of court settlement.
