OK Go Owes Bob Marley Some Money



OK Go is the band less known for its songs than for creating a viral video for one of its songs. For the band's new single, "This Too Shall Pass," they made not one but two viral videos—one marching band, one Rube Goldberg—both of which are pretty inventive, neither of which hides the bare fact that they stole many of the song's basic components from Bob Marley's "Mr. Brown." It's blatant, but just to make sure we weren't nuts, we googled "ok go bob marley," and this guy had already gone full Oliver Stone on the topic. Pretty damning. Watch and listen to both songs after the jump and put your two cents in the comments. Also, Marley family, can we get a cut of the settlement?
