I think the Offspring might've done that on purpose, kinda like how they used the gibberish from "Rock of Ages" in the beginning of Pretty Fly...you know how they are

That's the first of four or five videos that someone put together about this type of thing. Most of them seem purely coincidental, but they're really interesting.

If you knew him in the slightest you'd know he was joking.

Joking? It's pretty well known that Dave stole some songs from Metallica.

Just look at Hangar 18. Total ripoff of The Call of Ktulu.

Technically, I think Nirvana 'stole' the riff of Come As You Are from some band about monkeys... Not The Monkees, somebody else.

Um... It's widely known that Jimmy Page stole a bunch of blues licks.

Coldplay VS Satch. Personally, I think it was just coincidence, but, whatever.

Puddle of Mud in general sounds (and looks) like Nirvana.

And for any of you into OLD rock, white guitarists stole black guitarist's songs all the time back in the 40s and 50s. Some in the 30s, but no outstanding cases I can think of.

Let's see... Oh, Ringo Starr stole the drum riff from "Get Back" and used it in one of his solo career songs, but he wrote the drum parts to both, so whatever...

And that's all I can think of. Might be able to think of more in the morning. I can't think at this unholy hour.

Oh, and this. On YouTube somewhere, Nirvana parodied that. I think in their Hollywood Bowl concert? Played the riff to Smells Like Teen Spirit, and started screaming out the lyrics to More Than a Feeling.

Laughed for ten minutes straight. Eh, I can't be arsed to look for the link, but it's on there somewhere.

Dude, no he didn't. He was just jealous that Lars was a better guitarist than him, so he stole all of Hangar 18 just to spite Jason Newstead, who replaced Cliff Burton as lead singer.


But hows Bob Rock tie in?

The absolute first song was Mechanix but Dave wrote it when he was in Metallica. When he got kicked out, Metallica made the riffs in the song more "gallopy" and changed the name to the Four Horseman. So more or less the riffs belong to Dave because he wrote them.

Anyone can correct me on the details on this story if I missed any.

Eighties by Killing Joke. No idea where you got monkeys from. Also, there's a song by The Damned that predates them both.

Nirvana admitted to stealing the riff. Killing Joke said they only wanted a confession. (I.E. too poor to sue.) However there are no harsh feelings as Dave Grohl recorded drums for their 2003 album.

The riff for "Are You Gonna Be my Girl" by Jet is very similar to "Lust for Life" by Iggy Pop.
