Pearl Jams Given to Fly sounds an awful lot like Going to California by Zep.

The riff from Jerry was a Racecar Driver by Primus sounds like the riff from King Crimsons Elephant Talk.

The verses from Pink Floyds Echoes kinda sounds like Across the Universe.

The riff to Warning by Green Day is pretty much a direct ripoff of Picture Book by The Kinks.

The bassline to My Guitar Gently Weeps, the riff to 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago, the riff to Brain Stew by Green Day, the riff to Last Resort by Papa Roach (lol, remember them?) and the heavy parts from Zeppelins version of Babe I'm Gonna Leave You all sound like the same melody.

Theres always someone saying SLTS is a "ripoff" of something else. I don't really get that one though, it dosen't sound like U Mass to me.

I've heard everything mentioned from More than a Feeling to Louie Louie to Godzilla (by Blue Oyster Cult) to Debaser.

Rock music just tends to revolve around very generic use of chords, I think more often than not its more coincidence than intentional.

i don't know about U-Mass but the heavy riff in smells like teen spirit IS a sloppy version of boston's 'more than a feeling'. chord for chord it's the same thing. then again, it's a very common progression. i've heard live mp3s of nirvana spoofing the boston tune before kicking into SLTS.

rape me also uses the same chord progression. same as 'self esteem' by the offspring.

it's about as common as the chord progression the chili peppers lifted from tom petty. Am G D

oh yeah - louie louie is a 3 chord progression SLTS is 4 chords.

The chorus riff in U-Mass is almost the exact same as the riff in 'Teenspirit.
I agree with The Offspring's Self Esteem though, very similer. Yeah Rape Me is pretty much the same too.

In the verse of "What I got" by Sublime there is a section that is identical to a melody line in "Lady Madonna" by the Beatles.
