[QUOTE=TheBig3;1256186]7 Famous Musicians Who Stole Some of Their Biggest Hits | Cracked.com

Dude amazing link! I did NOT know Greenday was such theives!! I LOVE Greenday!

Also whatever happened with the Tom Petty and Red Hot Chili Peppers? Because honestly I don't see how that would hold up....

Some of the other posters hinted on this very heavily, a lot of this sounds like similar progressions and not neccessarily rip offs.

What I can't play a G chord then a C chord then a D chord and palm mute it because someone else did something similar twenty years ago? By the way I have no idea what I just said would sound like so don't try it. Or do, if you want to laugh.

With the coldplay cases they stole everything! The beat, the progression, the way the vocals harmonized with the hook/melody. EVERYTHING. There was simply no denying it was right out STOLEN. And with our 'sampling' scandal of Ice Ice baby, that is simplying lifting the sample from one track and remixing it and doing your own thing around it, so that's obvious too. But with the case of Tom Petty and the Red Hot chili peppers it just sounds like they have similar chord progressions. The vocals are not alike in ANY way, the feel of the two songs is completely different with the different beats and tempos. Coldplay would plagarize the entire work, tempo, beat, vocals, everything. You could play the songs side by side and instantly say YEP that's stolen!


In your link some of those cases fall into that category of 'don't you think they are just playing similar chords and not meaning to steal'. Or hey what do I know, maybe they got stoned, listened to it and was like heck yeah let's copy that.

Amazing stuff! Keep it coming!

Edit: Well I take that back, some man slaughter sentences are not that harsh. I don't see how or why the law is this way, but you could kill someone and not serve that much jail time. It's all in the circumstances, how much money you have, how famous you are at the time.....OHHHHHH I GET IT NOW MR DAVE....you just blew my mind.

OMG my new favorite word!!!!!

but here's a perfect clip from youtube to illustrate the difference from something being 'similar' OR being able to play two songs side by side and thinking 'Holy shat, they stole that!'


creaky boards + coldplay + itunes fiasco - YouTube

you can decide....

pj harvey uh huh her - YouTube
Actually I've never heard the PJ Harvey song you quote ... no wonder, it was never released! Thanks Uh Huh Her is an album with no song of the same title.

The Kills' song just sounds like PJ Harvey, like a song she might have written a bit earlier than Uh huh Her. I can't find exact tune, maybe this comes close:

vktr, yikes you are right, I guess that was the album and not the song...hey I was tricked! I took that right off a music critic with a link that said uh huh her....dang! sorry!

I was struggling to find the common thread there too, no wonder!

thanks bud!
