    Car Seat Headrest has been forced to recall their new album Teens of Denial after it was found to carry an unauthorized sample from Ric Ocasek. Lars Brandle, writing for Billboard:

    According to a statement issued by Matador, a license for the contentious song (“Just What I Wanted/Not Just What I Needed”) had been negotiated “in good faith months ago, only to be told last week that the publisher involved was not authorized to complete the license in the United States, and that Ric Ocasek preferred that his work not be included in the song.” Ocasek, who has also served as a record producer and worked in major label A&R teams, has yet to comment on the matter.

    At first glance I literally thought this should have been posted in the General Forum in a thread for vehicles.

    is this happenstance or like dramatic irony or like what phrase/word do we use here? stranger than fiction? life imitating art?
