...How the main riffs to Take the Power Back by RATM and By The Way by RHCP are almost identical? I just thought it was kind of funny, because Tim Commerford only slaps on that one song because he doesn't want people to think they're Chili Pepper knock offs, and the one song he does, RHCP release a song a few years later with a nearly identical bass line. Do you think Flea just did it because he thought it would be funny, or was it really just a very ironic coincidence?

BTW, I'm not ripping on Flea. I actually love both bassists and, if he really was doing it as a joke, I would probably have done the same thing given the chance, because it would be really, really funny.

I can see where the TS is coming from. It's the same key, pretty much the same notes, but different phrasing (the main riffs from each song now).

Who the hell thinks that...?

They are entirely different bands.

Tim himself actually said that in an interview at one point.

I do.

Bloody Chili rip-offs.

I see what the TS is saying actually. It's tenuous, but it's there.

Cochise and I'm broken(pantera) sounds the same, timmy C definatly ripped off pantera for that song..

I dont think they sound that similar that you would think they are rip offs.

I guess that's the only reason Zack doesn't sing like Antony.
And the only reason Morello doesn't play guitar like Fruciante.

Seriously, I can't see any sort of resemblence between the bands at all.


I don't either, but Tim is paranoid about being "original" (and not being copied, but that's another thread entirely)
