Does One Direction's "Midnight Memories" sound like Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me?" 1D is under fire for ripping off the 80s hit. One Direction Midnight Memories Pour Some Sugar On Me
Is One Direction's new song, "Midnight Memories," a rip-off of Def Leppard's 80s hit "Pour Some Sugar On Me"?

Initially, we thought "No way," but upon a closer side-by-side comparison, we can definitely hear some similarities.

Will Def Leppard being taking legal action?

According to a report from The Mirror, a source says, "Everyone is staying silent at this stage but it's clear the two songs sound alike--which has been enough for Def Leppard's aides to pose questions to their legal team."

If all this buzz about 1D ripping off a song sounds familiar, you may recall that they took some heat for the "Best Song Ever" intro sounding like The Who's "Baba O'Riley."

Okay, what do you think? Did the 1D guys borrow heavily from "Pour Some Sugar On Me," or do you think "Midnight Memories" draws just a little inspiration from the hair metal hit?
