In the world of music, there are always going to be songs that sound similar. But some of them are just too similar.

Can you think of any examples?

E.G. Linking Park - Castle of Glass = Wednesday 13 - Ghost of Vincent Price
Papa Roach - Kick in the Teeth = Halestorm - Freak Like Me
As I Lay Dying - Forever = Black Veil Brides - Let/Lay Me Down

The similarities of these examples can mainly be heard in the chorus, apart from the first which is the main melody for both bands.

*Edit: BVB ripped off AILD, Halestorm ripped off Papa Roach and Linkin Park ripped off W13 in the above examples.
**Edit: You are allowed to paste the URL of the songs you want to show. However, please only paste 2 URL's per post.

Lonesome Fiddle Blues and The Devil Went Down to Georgia
The Girl I Left Behind and The Rare Old Mountain Dew
Greensleeves and What Child is This?
Dueling Banjos and Feudin' Banjos
The Joker and Angel
Bittersweet Symphony and The Last Time
Stairway to Heaven and Taurus
The Russian and Soviet National Anthems
Sweet Home Alabama and All Summer Long

I heard a Jennifer Lopez song yesterday and I knew something was fishy because I actually liked the main tune. Then I realized it's straight out of fukin Lambada. No idea what the song is called though.

Listen to the chorus riff of More Than a Feeling, then listen to Smells Like Teen Spirit.

Quote by ChucklesMginty
It's a completely different chord progression and the vocals have nothing to do with each other. You can't give someone shit for using the same rhythm.


It's the same chord progression, but in a different key. I'm think Cobain even said he took the riff from it. I'm not giving anyone shit for it, I like both songs.

One time I heard this Opeth song that sounded just like a Wham! song. Totally ripped off George Michael.

Opeth rips off a lot of bands, but they always admit it. However I doubt that they consciously ripped of Wham!

Thank god, I already can't deal with the fact that their vocalist lost his mind. I didn't need them ripping off terrible bands too. :p

When the fuck are you idiots gonna get it through your thick skulls.
If your musical influences are any or all of these : The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, BFMV, Cannibal Corpse, Nirvana, Boston, Papa Roach, Coldplay. Mozart, etc.
Of course some of their songs and sounds and methods are gonna come out through your own music.
That's kinda how influences works.

First, please calm down. Second, haven't you ever heard songs which sound pretty much like another song by another band? Yeah sure you may listen to bands that influence you, but if you pretty much copy and paste what your 'influences' have wrote, that's not good.

You can tell when bands are influenced by other certain bands: 'Oh, that sounds like A7x', 'That drum part sounds like Suicide Silence', etc. but there are times when it's just ridiculous how they get away with such plagiarism.

There's this theory that music will soon sound the same because there's a finite amount of combinations one can use, at the moment, but we're not there yet so there's not much excuse for all of these songs ripping off another bands work, no matter how unpopular they are (as in relatively small fan-base, not well heard of).

Linkin Park pretty much took the main melody from Wednesday 13's song and used it in theirs. I can't tell much difference here.

The main riff from AILD was pretty much copied by BVB in their chorus.
