`Down Under'

Men at Work Stole Most Famous Tune

Australian rock band Men at Work had a massive hit with their 1980s song "Down Under" about a vegemite sandwich and the world’s other temptations. It turns out they had some help as an Australian judge ruled Thursday that the group's famous flute riff was ripped off from a folk tune. The owner of the song, the entertainment group EMI, may have to pay up to 60 percent of the earnings they made from the international smash. "It's a big win for the underdog," said one lawyer.
