*General Larry Platt is being called a beat biter by a Michigan duo who claims his “American Idol” audition song, “Pants on the Ground,” is a ripoff of their 1996 recording “Back Pockets on the Floor.”
The Green Brothers of Highland Park wrote to MyFoxDetroit.com claiming their recording has the same “intent, idea and message” as Platt’s ‘Pants,'” which has become a nationwide phenomenon. Gerald Green, one half of the brothers, says they wish Platt well but want the world to see their version on YouTube and compare.
