i dug up my dads old record collection and player and i found the clash's double single straight to hell so i put it on and it strangely sounds just like M.I.A's paper planes
i haven't seen this addressed any were on UG
so i wanted to know do you think bands just blatantly disregarded the song there copying and said to hell with that old song ours is better or do you think its was just a coincidence that they sound alike?

im not flaming M.I.A for this because this could open the eyes of most of the youth today to different genres of music
what do you think?

yeah I noticed that too, but they couldn't really sue for royalties or anything. no melodies or lyrics in common really.

In before Cold play and Satch.


I can't remember it but there was an Iron Maiden song that sounds like the intro to Rory Gallaghers Moonchild.

Edit: 2 Minutes to Midnight is the song.

Wow, I looked that song up, and as soon as i heard it, it sounded like Paper Planes. Mabye MIA used the intro as a sampled background, like vanilla Ice using under pressure for the only song he did.

Yeah, M.I.A just sampled it. I thought it was cool.

A lot of songs rip other songs.

For example, Coldplay's Viva la Vida sounds enough like one of Satriani's songs (something along the lines of If I Could Fly... it's something like that) that he's suing Coldplay.

I dunno, I don't really buy into all this st33lin business. If everybody got all up in arms when someone makes a song that sounds similar to something already written, we will run out of songs to write.

There's also an Iron Maiden song that sounds like a Venom song.

EDIT: It was also 2 Minutes to Midnight, they ripped Welcome to Hell off.

Megadeth's Skin o My Teeth sounds just like 2 Minutes to Midnight. Well, at least the verse riff.

Butterfly by Crazytown = Pretty Little Ditty by RHCP

Butterfly is just Crazytown's interpretation of a good song.

here's what you do
1. Take a fork, preferably metal.
2. Put some tomato sauce on it.
3. Let tomato sauce on fork dry.
4. Turn it in and call it: "The Spaghetti Massacre."
