Tom Petty & the Chili Peppers, together at last
If you've been paying attention to music news the past couple days, you may have heard that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are in a bit of hot water. It seems their current hit single "Dani California" may well be a blatant rip-off of Tom Petty's hit "Mary Jane's Last Dance" from a decade or so ago. You can read a bit about the controversy here.
In response, one of C&T's awesome readers, Los Angeles-based producer DR. DEUTSCH, sent me a mash-up of "Dani California" and "Mary Jane's Last Dance" that he created. It's called "Mary Dani Janey, CA" and it's badass. Although something tells me Flea would have a hissy fit if he heard it. Check it out:

I say this should be used as evidence in the civil suit. Kick their asses, Tom. See you at Bonnaroo.
