Kings of Leon steal No Age's logo?

Kings of Leon t-shirtNo Age's rainbow logo (see below) has become somewhat of an iconic image of the modern punk movement. I, for one, remember when Colin Greenwood wore a shirt with the logo on Radiohead's In Rainbows tour four years ago. Today the LA duo accused Kings of Leon of lifting their logo for a design on one of their own shirts. In response to this apparent fashion plagiarizing, No Age Tweeted, "Imitation is the highest form of what now?"

As Pitchfork notes, this also prompted Fleet Foxes' frontman, Robin Pecknold, to join in on the Followill bashing by Tweeting "THEY ARE THE WORST". Above you can see the Kings of Leon design and judge for yourself.
