    Avril Lavigne – Girlfriend (2007)

Quite the furore was furored over this little gem. An anthem of the ‘90s, yes… but also a clean rip-off of this much-loved Stones studio session. 

It caused quite a big fuss but we think everyone’s over it now, although it did take sticking the Rolling Stones on the royalty list to sort it.

The Rolling Stones – The Last Time (1965)
