The Grates Slam Weetbix For Stealing Their Song

Written by John Ritchie on March 27, 2012

Brisbane band, The Grates, have hit out at Weetbix for using a track for a commercial that sounds very similar to the band’s 2008 single, Aw Yeah.

The Grates claim that Weetbix had actually contacted them asking if they could use the track. However, The Grates refused, but it looks like Weetbix went ahead and did it anyway.

When one of their followers tweeted the ad, the band replied in anger:

@thegrates: They asked us if they could record a version of this song for the ad. We said no. Can’t believe they did it anyway, jerks.

What do you think?
