Now one of the musical world’s favourite punching bags, Coldplay, were hit by Joe Satriani for apparently ripping off the legendary multi-instrumentalist’s track ‘If I Could Fly’. Not because Miley is a superstar with the Disney machine behind her and Lustra are just some band trying to navigate the obstacles of the music industry, but mostly for the way in which they handled this one. If in the past ALO had a kind of Doobie Brothers jamming around a campfire appeal, on their fourth album, Sounds Like This, they get a little freakier and add all sorts of sonic weirdness to their sound. Avril is probably too busy making another horrible music video and if we know Peaches like we think we do, she probably wouldn’t give a fuck even if they knew. Oddly though, the music is supremely uplifting. It's easy to write off ALO (and any Brushfire artist) as merely a bunch of stoners who make albums for lazy, dazey times, but when they make an album with as many hooks as Sounds Like This, with as much sonic care and feeding, with such strong songs and performances, that's really not a fair assessment at all. Of course, this was all nonsense with Parker himself believing it was all some big joke. We don’t know whose side we’re on in this case, because quite frankly, we don’t know whose song is cheesier. Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker was accused by many of plagiarising Argentinian Pablo Ruiz’s 1989 song. In the early 2000s, many claimed that The Strokes had ripped off Petty’s opening to ‘American Girl’ note for note. They also have a nice kitchen-sink approach to the arrangements, throwing in all kinds of goofy stuff (clavinet solos, dub reggae breakdowns, silly raps, cheesy synths) that keeps the mood light and fun throughout. Meanwhile, the Red Hot Chili Peppers were also suspected of pulling from Petty’s 1993 tune ‘Last Dance With Mary Jane’ for their hit ‘Dani California’. But it must be just a coincidence, right? Even their 2009 mega-single ‘I Gotta Feeling’ sounds an awful lot like this track by some dude called Bryan Pringle. 25Music will forever be fraught with both fans and artists arguing that one band ripped another band’s riff or chord progression off, which at times, cannot be helped – sometimes we create songs from influences we don’t even know had a subconscious impact on us. Mixing blues-riff guitar workouts with strutting disco jams and loose-limbed funk jammers with synthy Steve Miller-influenced pop, the band sounds more invested in making music that will inspire feet to get moving instead of creating a laid-back, laid-out mood. Who knows, but it sounds an awful lot like this song from "The Simpsons." It may just be the single most famous riff in music, and it really, really, really, really sounds a lot like ‘Maria Quiet’ by bossa nova singer Astrud Gilberto and pianist Gil Evans. Tame Impala – ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards’ vs. Pablo Ruiz – ‘Océano’ Remember the absurd controversy surrounding these two tracks? The topic spiked our interest, and so much so, we decided to compare some of the most hotly debated same-sounding songs written, from contemporary musicians to jams that were first recorded ions ago, generating a list of the most similar-sounding songs in music. To start off, I think the riff to Beating Around The Bush by ACDC is similar to the riff in Oh Well by Fleetwood Mac. Sure, the record works fine as a soundtrack for lying in the summer grass doing nothing, but it also works as a heady, brainy, silly, and fun slice of modern rock, too. 16. Honestly, they’re both pretty bad, but we probably have to side with Lustra. He’s allegedly plagiarised everyone from obscure rappers, to Daft freaking Punk. While we’d hate to accuse one of the most original songwriters of his generation a plagiarist, one can’t deny the similarities between the riff to Nirvana’s classic single ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘Eighties’ by UK post-punkers Killing Joke – both songs even have the same watery guitar effects. You be the judge. After noticing the similarities between the two tunes, they decided to ditch the legal mumbo jumbo and instead challenged Miley to a live song-off instead. Listen to Music in the largest collection of songs that sound like other songs. A lot of the tracks deal with the pitfalls of making music and being in a band, with a healthy dose of rueful bitterness that makes you think that maybe they are second-guessing their career choice. This is one of those cases where no one’s lawyers got involved, and it’s not known if either artist was entirely aware of the similarities between the two tracks. The late Tom Petty has made headlines before for his quiet legal action against Grammy Award winner Sam Smith, for the similarities between his song ‘I Won’t Back Down’ and Smith’s hit ‘Stay With Me’. In this case, Peaches’ extensive online following were up in arms about the similarities between the Canadian popstar’s fairly awful ‘I Don’t Have To Try’ and Peaches’ characteristically sultry ‘I’m The Kinda’. Of course, the track did eventually get released a single and sure enough, word got to Killing Joke, who decided not to file a copyright claim. It’s the riff everyone cites when someone asks what the hell a riff is. Of course, there’s no way of telling if an artist actually ripped off a fellow performer without actually being in the room when they do it and hearing them exclaim something to the effect of, “I’m going to rip off this song, not credit the original artist, and make a lot of money!” followed by maniacal laughter. This one is likely unintentional, as we reckon Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys were too busy listening to the likes of The Replacements and Descendants to paw through their parents’ record collections and find this classic Chicago cut so they could rip it off. It’s not like Deep Purple’s keyboardist was a jazz aficionado who came up by playing jazz clubs, right? The song where the guy says "I'll be there" over and over again. Of course, this was all nonsense with Parker himself believing it was all some big joke. Find album reviews, stream songs, credits and award information for Sounds Like This - ALO on AllMusic - 2012 - If in the past ALO had a kind of Doobie Brothers… Well, that may not be so. In this case, even the lyrical subject matter is pretty much the same. Remember the absurd controversy surrounding these two tracks? Since the song’s release many have noticed striking similarities between the trash legends’ timeless riff and the riff from ‘Tapping Into the Emotional Void’ by punk-metal fusion band Excel, who even considered legal action though nothing seems to have come about. So much so, in December of 2008 he filed a copyright infringement against Coldplay, who naturally denied they’d taken from his 2004 track. Yes, the single most famous guitar riff in rock history is very likely a rip-off of an obscure jazz tune, but surely one of Metallica’s crowning achievements is an entirely original composition, right? This is a strange one, because we reckon that these two really sound quite a lot alike. They haven't totally ditched the core elements of their sound and there's still a ton of warmth in the way the band is recorded, in Zach Gill's burnished vocals and in the hippie-deep lyrical sentiments. It’s the riff that anyone who only kinda sorta knows how to play guitar is able to play with expert proficiency. Damn. Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker was accused by many of plagiarising Argentinian Pablo Ruiz’s 1989 song. Celebrate the moment when you figure it out - 'I knew I heard something like that before!' Mistake or not, there have been plenty of songs over the years that sound for the most part, creepishly similar to other songs, which have lead to long-winded disputes between creatives and even worse, actual copyright cases from one artist to another. That said, the opening chords of each song sound remarkably similar, and it would hardly be the only case of alleged plagiarism ever to hit the band. That said, will.i.am, or Will Je Suis as he’s known in France, kind of has a history of doing this sort of thing. There's also a left-field approach to the songwriting this time. However, the courts apparently didn’t agree with Suni, throwing his case out. But it’s hardly the first time that listeners have noticed similarities between Petty’s work and songs scaling the charts. Get the latest Classic Rock news, features, updates and giveaways straight to your inbox. What they were doing listening to an Avril Lavigne song that wasn’t a single, we’ll never know. In saying that, the chorus’ both do follow a very similar vocal progression, some may even say close to identical. In the end, an out of court settlement was agreed upon between both acts. While it may or may not have been because of the subtle differences between the two tunes, we reckon it’s because Suni is simply too obscure for Furtado or Timbaland to have ever possibly heard before. They won, too, and the liner notes to Radiohead’s debut album, Pablo Honey, now credit Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, the duo that penned ‘The Air That I Breathe’, as co-writers of ‘Creep’, and the band split all royalties from the track with Hammond and Hazlewood. Yes, it’s the first riff that every guitarist plays. It helps make the album's long running time (over an hour with most tracks over five minutes and one even pushing ten) seem a lot shorter than it is. Janne Suni, the Finnish composer behind ‘Acidjazzed Everything’, the spiralling chiptune track you can check out below, even took Nelly Furtado and producer Timbaland to court for stealing the “original and central identifying melodic, harmonic and rhythmic components” of his song. View this video on YouTube youtube.com. I mean, it’s not like Metallica are known for being litigious, right? Online commentators have accused the band of ripping off everybody from Bryan Adams and The Kinks, to The Hives. Besides, it turns out the band noticed the similarity too, and were weary of releasing the track as a single for just that reason. At this point we’d sort of like to apologise for ruining everything. When The Hollies first heard Radiohead’s breakthrough single ‘Creep’ and noticed the similarities between the alt-rock classic and their song ‘The Air That I Breathe’, they were so flattered that they immediately slapped Thom Yorke and co. with a lawsuit for copyright infringement.
