A few years ago, there was a lot of hubbub over the similarities between the Red Hot Chili Peppers song "Dani California" and Petty's "Last Dance with Mary Jane," and this week, Petty's in the news again, this time because Sam Smith inadvertently aped Petty's 1989 single "I Won't Back Down" with last year's hit "Stay With Me."
But things have come to an polite end: Petty and ELO's Jeff Lynne, who co-wrote "I Won't Back Down," are now listed as co-writers of "Stay With Me" and will receive royalties going forward.
