I'm not making any assumptions, but I thought this Why Go - Pearl Jam's intro bass riff sounded a lot like the groove main riff in The End of the Line. Could've been a mistake, could've been something else... but it sounds very similar.

There are a limited amount of notes, right? Therefore, there are a limited amount of riffs, particularly ones that sound good to the ear. It's probably a coincidence.

Yeah that's what I thought. Just wanted to post it to hear what people thought about similar riffs and stealage. Personally as long as it is cited I think it's fine.

First off, this belongs in the Metallica thread. Secondly, I think they're making such stale music right now, that this only goes to show you how dull it really is. I don't think it's stolen at all even though it's practically note for note, it's just Metallica writing boring riffs. I like Ten and that sort of riff fits there. Doesn't fit for Metallica though.

They're not stealing.

There is a difference between thievery and unoriginality.

Can you guess which one Metallica so graciously falls under?

Oh, and Metallica thread. Hurf durf.

Unoriginal band steals unoriginal riff - what a shocker!
