Okay.. I just noticed the riff at one point in the background of Beethoven's C*** is part of the solo in Streamline by System of a Down... except slowed down a bit....Stealing from your own band?!! or a mere coincidence..

If your band wrote it, then it can hardly be called stealing. It's called recycling riffs.

It may be the same notes, but it's not the same. Eddie Van Halen took a note sequence from a Violin piece and sped it up. It's not the same if it doesn't do exactly, and I mean exactly, what the original does. Remember there are only twelve notes and how you use them is key to wat you make.

Tom Morello does that too, I believe.

If he just went outside of the pentatonic, maybe everything wouldn't sound the same!

Everyone does that, why do you think bands like metallica use the open e so much?

At any rate, if you own the writing credits, you can't steal it, it's yours to do with what you want.

Pfft, hey, at least he's straying from the typical nu-metal formula and actually doing some borderline art rock.
