Some of Led Zeppelin's hits were ripped off from other people, and they failed to credit them. I still like Zeppelin though.

"Dazed and Confused", music originally done by Jake Holmes in 1967. Jimmy Page stole all the music.

There are others, like the intro to "Stairway to Heaven" was ripped from "Taurus" by Spirit:

versus

I know that Zeppelin also stole "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" and only credited the original writer many, many years later after they were sued.

Another rip off I found was "Some Nights" by fun. Sounds exactly the same as Simon & Garfunkel's "Cecilia"

versus

Burning Down, I did NOT know any of that. Very interesting! I guess it's easier to ask 'Who HASN'T stole their songs from someone else.'

My little heart is broken...I've heard Greenday and now the mighty Led Zeppelin are guilty of song snatching!

I'm gonna lay in a corner and cry!

I've always given zeppelin a hard time but they were still a great band. They could take all those songs and do it a hell of a lot better than the originals. They were great, just not the most creative.

I know that this isn't the right thread for that, but take a look at this article if you haven't:
The Jimi Hendrix Murder Conspiracy, Was Jimi Hendrix Murdered?
It made me hesitate and since I read it I don't know what to believe about his death.

And, on the topic, soon I watched a very interesting video. Some of you may have watched it, but here it is:

Why are you guys laughing at MURDER or is it my noob question about editing the title thread?

I didn't know murder was so funny...I should start a thread called 'Why murder is funny in at least a hundred ways -- your thoughts'.

I'm picking at you guys...
