Does anyone believe Staind ripped off Black Hole Sun with It's been Awhile?

#1
I was just playing It's Been Awhile on guitar and it sounds almost exactly like Black Hole Sun.

They sound similar, but every time a song sounded similar to each other we would have practically no original songs. No more blues really

I shouldn't have used ripped off. more like borrowed. Not really mad or anything just curious if anyone hinks they sound similair.

Maybe.

Also, I was just playing that Slayer song, Skeletons of Society, and I think they ripped off Slayer, with that Disposable Youth song.

And Papa Roach ripped off Iron Maiden, Between Angels and Insects sounds a lot like Prowler.

And there's tons more, I just can't be assed rmemebering them

The intro to Machine Head's "The Rage To Overcome" is uncannily similar to Death's "Flattening of Emotions".

And the bridge riff in Lamb of God's "Black Label" sounds almost the same as Meshuggah's "Future Breed Machine".

And for some reason, most riffs on the Sepultura "Roots" album follow the same pattern.

Hell, I love all those bands.

Meh. They're similar sounding songs, but Staind probably drew inspiration from the song from Black Hole Sun. Bands do it all the time. Only time it's ripping off is when they recycle absolutely everything (maybe shuffle the order of things) & try to pass it off as their own.

We know.

But you know how much the thread would suck if all we discussed were those two songs.

So now your thread is "Songs you think sound similar".
