Greenday was well known to steal their songs... Greenday being most Friday when they would wag school and smoke weed instead, listening to some old songs, they must of learnt the guitar riffs from them and then forgotten about the original song the next day and thought they where just geniuses about coming up with them! Haha, they did at least make some reasonably decent songs out of them at least.

stole the riff from .........



The Montrose song is a bit trippy at the start but the riff starts at 0:50.

I actually knew the SLF song years before I heard the original, I heard the Montrose track on the radio and thought "Holy crap, they just totally stole that riff from Stiff Little Fingers" LOL! Then I googled the dates...... sad.gif

Wow it's pretty close isn't it? I love that old Montrose album, you know that's Sammy Hagar on vocals right?

Well to be honest i doubt its "stealing", probably not related at all, but i like how both these songs share dat same feeling

Ok back on topic, Robin Thicke vs Marvin Gaye. My lady Stacie pointed this out to me , but apparently it goes even deeper than she thought.

Hehe - it's fun to assume things like these and it's even funnier that we will never know the truth behind the assumptions smile.gif

There's a big chance for someone writing a tune, to have another tune so well imbued in the back of their mind, that they would use parts of it unconsciously in the new tune smile.gif I think this is happening A LOT smile.gif

And famous Metallica - Enter Sandman , released in 1991

Very interesting topic!
This has always fascinated me - are these just musical coincidences or...?

There is so much music out there so it is not like the odds of compositing something that was already done are non existent but stil... This is usually the case with pretty famous songs. It would really interesting to hear thoughts from the bands involved on this.

Another example :



RHCP's version :
