    A Twitter Fight Between The 1975, Maroon 5, And Hot Chelle Rae Is Something I Never Expected To Happen, But Here We Are

    "I love that song about being in a phone box or whatever it is."

    Chances are you've probably heard of the English alt-rock band the 1975.

    If not, here are some of their most popular songs: "Somebody Else," "Girls," and "UGH!"

    Well, yesterday in a tweet, they announced their new single, "Me and You Together Song," with some cute 'n' fun cover art.

    No harm in that, right?

    But Maroon 5 saw it and thought it looked just a tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny bit too familiar and sent off this shady response:

    Twitter: @maroon5

    Fun fact: Kara's Flowers was Maroon 5's original band name when they first got together in the '90s.

    Then the 1975's frontman Matt Healy fired off a snarky comeback of his own:

    In case you didn't get the reference, Matt was referring to Maroon 5's 2012 song "Payphone," LOL.

    Needless to say, the 1975 fans started laughing their asses off.

    @Truman_Black Matty said I hate to say it I hope I don’t sound ridiculous idk who kara flower is

    @Truman_Black never leave twitter. this app needs you

    But the drama doesn't end there (!!!!!!), because Hot Chelle Rae hilariously chimed in with another very familiar album cover.

    @Truman_Black Well, this is awkward... one of us is going to have to change 😳👗 #whoworeitbest #whatever

    You remember Hot Chelle Rae, right? The rock band who gave us the ever-iconic "Tonight Tonight."

    And since last night, fans have also been responding with all other things that look strikingly similar to the album covers.

    IDK about you, but I am actually LOLing right now.

    The "feud" seems to have gone quiet for the time being, and Maroon 5 have since deleted their original tweet. But if any updates happen, I'll def let you know.
