    Backstory: my girlfriend likes boy bands. we were listening to her ipod on shuffle in the car and this came on. i shit some bricks. she had no idea how i knew the song. maybe we were all wrong about one direction they clearly have great taste in music.

    I'm going to assume they've never had 2 tickets to Iron Maiden (baby).

    They didn't get paid for the rights...

    But they are getting paid from all the new fans that know now they exist and buy their albums, merch and concert tickets.

    After investigating the situation, I understand Wheatus is not crying at all. However, they're not swimming in coins with Scrooge McDuck either.

    Smile

    I mean if they gave them permission to cover the song but not take their rightful fee they are not very smart.

    For the most part, its the label's call.

    I mean the video you posted seemed like a live cover from a concert. Which honestly if it was something they never planned to officially release, I'm not even sure they have to pay Wheatus anything.

    Now if they covered it and released it, yea, payday for Wheatus.

    My friend is going to check into it tomorrow. But he did tell me that if you cover a full song at a concert you have to still pay for it. Also it was in their movie. I'm hoping Wheatus is getting their pay out.

    Oh if it was in the movie they made bank.

    Also I also just assumed you could cover whatever you want live since bands seem to do it all the time. I guess it's a pretty nominal fee.

    I believe you're "supposed" to pay a fee for covering songs live, but it really isn't enforced.

    To quote my friend, Wheatus is "getting all the moolah". He can't see how much because they're BMI and 1D is ASCAP.

    "In this case they sing it and BMI pays Wheatus because it's their song and not 1Ds."
