Can you think of three or more songs by different artists that sound alike? Don't put stuff like "rap!1!1one! htey atempz potry lawlz!.1! but phail."
An example I can think of is Name and Number by Curiosity Killed the Cat, Ring Ring Ring by De la Soul (I know it's rap, but what I meant was not putting all rap songs in general into this category), and Don't Lose my Number by Phil Collins.
Part of the Conan O'Brien is a genius group.

RHCP have also said Dani California's guitar riff is accidentally similar to Sweet Home Alabama.

The solo was ripped from Purple haze as well. John confirmed it in an interview a while back.

'The Passenger' by Iggy Pop and 'Holiday' by Green Day.

Cause Green Day are uninspired plagiarists.


My friend and I once had a discussion about Greenday ripping off songs a few years ago. We found about 5 songs of theirs that were rip offs, and Holiday is actually the same as a couple of different songs. I'll try and find some proof of that if I can remember any of the songs.

Edit: "The solo was ripped from Purple haze as well. John confirmed it in an interview a while back."

lol John Frusciante is very unashamed of the songs he has taken from. He has also said the intro chord progression to Under the Bridge is taken from a David Bowie song, and another part in the verse of UtB was also copied from another song.

The Joker by the Steve Miller Bang, Angel by Shaggy, and Angel of the Morning by Juice Newton.

The first and third don't sound alike, but the second is basically the other two stuck together.

I don't know songs but the first time I heard Panic! At the Disco I thought they were Fall Out Boy.
