I was listening to the smashing pumpkins earlier and Jellybelly came on and suddenly realized "oh ****, saliva stole that riff for Click Click Boom!"

i noticed a long time ago that the beastie boys butchered the smoke on the water riff for Fight For Your Right To Party.

anyone else have any? and I'm not talking about chord progression, 'cause obviously a lot of songs use the same ones, I'm talking about riffs or melodies.

Some peculiar cellphone sound, mostly used for text messages; sounds exactly like one of the riffs from PONR Part 1: Mute Requiem by Quo Vadis. I always tense up when I hear it, because that song is awesome.

Searchbar and overused witticism.

Mother by Danzig and some song a friend of my friend wrote. Uses the same exact ----7-------3---5---7-------3---5---7-------3---5---7--- pattern, except played on a bass.

Elton John's Have Mercy on the Criminal uses the lick from Clapton's
Layla, although it's in a completely different harmonic context, so it doesn't really matter.

Bad Seed was written first. Therefore Audioslave ripped off metallica.

Welcome Home (Coheed and Cambria) sounds like Led Zepellins Kashmir.

Let's not forget their theft of this song:

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Actually no, they are quite similar.
Take the first guitar you here on Crazy Train and compare it to the first phrase the lead guitarist of Bloc Party plays. It may be higher and possibly in a different key but it's very very similar.
