Default Living off the dead!

The other day I was listening to some music on my friends ipod. I first checked out his Nirvana tracks. Then I saw he had some Pink... I wanted to hear her new single. The one about "getting in a fight" blah blah blah.

When I heard the first tune, I stopped it. It sounded a bit like Nirvanas Breed! I thought that it was probably just a coincidence. Then I heard another of her songs called "Full Throttle" I think from the movie Charlies' Angels. It Sounded famaliar to me again! This time it was an exact replica! It was copy and pasted from Nirvanas "Stay Away"! That Cow! How could she do that. That was not a mistake surely... Listen for yourself and tell me what you think... She took the chorus and changed the lyrics. She gives Nirvana no credit... What else has she stolen and made millions from!

Wait a second.....Nirvana - 'The Man Who Sold The World' sounds a lot like David Bowie's song 'The Man Who Sold The World'.

I swear, you're going on 2000 posts and you still haven't made one remotely intelligent comment.

Well call up Joe Satriani and you two can have a heartful pow-wow.

Also, "Come As You Are" by Nirvana sure sounds a hell of a lot like "Eighties" by Killing Joke.

anyone ever notice the similarities between the chorus to boston's 'more than a feeling' and the main riff to nirvana's 'smells like teen spirit'???

pretty shocking stuff.

with all of 5 major chord shapes on a guitar and a whopping 12 tones to an octave i really can't see how ANYONE might ever end up sounding like someone else.... i mean a pop star with chord based hooks for her chorus ends up with melodies that sounds like a band that based their entire existence on chord based hooks? unpossible....

Everyone knows that the Smells Like Teen Spirit riff is a ripoff of like 12 different songs.

What I don't understand is who Nirvana actually ripped off. Mudhoney is the only grunge band that sounds like them, but Mudhoney really are remotely different.

They take influences from many different artists and incorporate them into a sound i dont think is really ripping anybody off. Cobains influences stretch as far as the Vaselines and Young Marble Giants ffs
