Juice WRLD is reportedly being sued by the pop punk band Yellowcard over his breakout hit, “Lucid Dreams.” The Blast and Billboard report that the band claims the song copies their own “Holly Wood Died,” released in 2006, without permission. The band, which split in 2017, is seeking $15M in royalties plus co-ownership of the song.
Also named in the lawsuit are “Lucid Dreams” co-write Taz Taylor, producer Nicholas Mira, publisher BMG Rights Management, record label Grade A Productions, and Interscope Records, and more. Key to Yellowcard’s lawsuit is an interview in which Juice WRLD cites Fall Out Boy’s From Under the Cork Tree as an influence. That 2005 album was produced by Neil Avron, who also produced “Holly Wood Died.”
