Jet is often accused by critics of riding down a well-worn musical path, essentially ripping-off their rock n' roll predecessors. The boys have always been quick to acknowledge their influences, from The Rolling Stones to AC/DC and The Beatles, but at times some mock the shocking similarities. For one, many have cited the beat in Jet's big hit "Are You Gonna Be My Girl
" and its striking likeness to Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life
." But Chris Chester shot back at the press on this one, citing a conversation he had with Iggy himself on the subject: "He said I was crazy. If you listen to a song like 'You Can't Hurry Love' by The Supremes I think you'll find its closer to 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl' than 'Lust for Life' ever was. And that's what Iggy said as well."
