Friday Exposed - Rebecca Black Ripped Off Bob Dylan?

The parallels between Bob Dylan and Rebecca Black are obvious: Gifted storytellers with deep, expressive lyrics, anti-establishment non-conformists with the courage to express their art in an inimitable style, and the ability to convey the angst and dissatisfaction of the youth of an entire nation.

The similarity of critical reactions is striking as well - "they can't sing".

Now we learn the shocking truth - not only do these arists have so much in common, but Rebecca Black's stirring anthem "Friday" was actually originally written and performed by Bob Dylan:

"Which seat should I take?" - an existential quandry if ever there was one.  Fun, fun, fun, fun, indeed.
