Hayley Williams Accuses One Direction Of Ripping Off New Found Glory Riff That Rips Off Journey
Re: "All Apologies" featuring a cello, "an addition to the band’s sound that might have seemed unimaginable only three years earlier." Um, there was a cello on "Something In The Way" on 'Nevermind,' an inclusion that I certainly took notice of, and for me, makes that track the amazing piece it is. (Also, you've got "No Apologies" in place of "All Apologies" in the first sentence. Would be great for SPIN to employ some copy editors/proofreaders.)

The xx – “Sunset (Jamie xx Edit)”
Since k.d lang and Melissa Etheridge made the list, perhaps 'Svede' is really the lesbian jazz chanteuse who successfully sued the London band Suede over the rights to the name in the U.S.? (The London Suede was never quite as catchy.)

Say Hi – “Devils” Video
No, I think you're right, Alan. The original performance is from another BBC program called "Something Else," hosted by Tony Wilson. Looks like at some point the original footage -- seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_4pScqkaa6Y -- was rebroadcast under the John Peel In Sessions banner, which is what the German guy used for the basis of his stop-motion animation piece. Regardless of origin, this Playmobil translation is amazing.
