The feud between The Killers and Panda Express ended in the best way possible

The Killers may have just become the greatest band ever. The fight for free chicken is underway.

Basically, it recently came to the attention of American rock band The Killers that Panda Express has been selling fortune cookies with potentially plagiarised quotes, or song lyrics in this case.

The band has taken offence to the fortune cookie saying “Smile like you mean it,” which anyone from generation Y could attest to being a reference to the band’s popular song of the same name.

Apparently, this is not the first plagiarised song title to be released from the restaurant. I’m thinking that Smash Mouth definitely has a greater chance in court for royalties.

“Smile like you mean it” is fairly generic. “Hey now, you’re an allstar” is very clearly a copy.

The beef – or should I say, chicken – between the two parties, however, has been resolved.
