No Age have hit out at Kings Of Leon after claiming that they have ripped off their T-shirt designs.

The punk duo wrote on their blog Noageka.blogspot.com about the similarity between their design of one of their official T-shirts and that of one of the Kings Of Leon's shirts, writing: "T-shirt designs by the kings of originality. Looking good."

According to Spin, No Age began selling the T-shirt in 2007, while Kings Of Leon started offering it for sale in 2009. The Tennessee rockers have not commented on the statement.

No Age released their third album "Everything In Between" in late 2010 and have just finished an extensive world tour in support of the album.

Kings Of Leon are currently taking time off after completing their lengthy world tour in support of their fifth album "Come Around Sundown", which they released in October 2010.

Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    They're similar but I would hardly call it stolen. It's not like it's the most original t-shirt design in the world anyway. Hardly anything to get upset about.

    Those t-shirt designs are a dime a dozen. sure you can say they "ripped you off" but if you tried suing, you're going to be very disapointed

    I'd buy neither. They look like poor photoshop gradient pictures I could do within seconds.

    They apparently called the wrong number. Thank Pesci they didn't get a response. They almost got these ugly things instead of the actual badass shirts from the 60's.

    So, a band I've never heard of get some news space online, claiming that another much bigger, more well known band, ripped off their T-shirt design? I suspect that this is just a way to get a bit of free publicity for their band then.

    They both kind of look like the Rolling Stones' Forty Licks text graphics, which certainly wasn't orginal itself.

    Either way, Kings Of Leon are one of the least respectable bands on the planet

    No Age is so much better than KOL.

    The Kings of Leon are pretty original musically; whether they're good or bad, they're certainly distinct. It's not really fair to mock them for a lack of originality across the board.
