On this day…

On this day in 2003, The Flaming Lips released the single “Fight Test” from their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. When the band recorded the song some members thought that it sounded a bit like the Cat Stevens song “Father And Son” but didn’t think to get clearance from Cat Stevens’ record company. Cat Stevens sued the Flaming Lips over the song’s similarities. He won the lawsuit and received 75% of the royalties from “Fight Test”.
