Larry Platt's 'Pants on the Ground' Rumored to Be a Rip-Off


A song titled 'Back Pockets on the Floor' is outed by The Green Brothers with accusation that it's an original version of Larry Platt's hit song.

"Pants on the Ground", which becomes a viral hit after performed by General Larry Platt, reportedly is not written by the 62-year-old man. A duo called The Green Brothers accused the former human rights activist has copied their song.

The Green Brothers recorded the song when they were in their 70s. The duo then put out footage of their performance for people out there to compare the two tracks and decide whether or not the similarity is coincidental.

"This is in regards to the General Larry Platt 'Pants on the Ground'. His song is a take off of The Green Brothers song 'Back Pockets on the Floor'," they said in an accompanying message on YouTube. " 'Back Pockets on the Floor' was written by G. Green and was copyrighted and recorded by The Green Brothers in 1996. The General's song have the same intent, idea and in part the same message. YOU BE THE JUDGE AMERICA!!"

Earlier this month, Larry Platt claimed in front of "American Idol" judges that "Pants on the Ground" is penned by himself. At that time, he rapped it in an infectious energy which dragged Randy Jackson to dance with him at the end of the audition. Later on, the veteran hired a lawyer in a bid to copyright the track soon after learning that some people have remixed it.
