Default Rip Offs - 12-18-2008, 04:18 PM

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Musicians are notorious for taking this old adage to heart, liberally “borrowing” (either intentionally or subconsciously) chords, melodies and/or lyrics from each other. Some say that it’s, in fact, the essence of all forms of music, especially modern popular music. Sometimes this musical flattery is taken in stride, while other times it’s repaid with a big fat lawsuit. There are countless examples of songs that borrow from other songs.

The idea of this thread is to write ones you know and perhaps link to a music video or something so we can all compare and see who stole what from who else.

Fergalicious by Fergie is "heavily inspired by" Supersonic by J.J. Fad.

Kanye West's song 'Better Faster Stronger' or whatever it was directly ripped Daft Punk's song, "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" and to be honest with you, I don't care if it was consented "borrowing" or not, he could've at the very least done his OWN version of the background instead of just using the same one!



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

Anything by Rihanna is pretty much a rip-off of a song.
I absolutely loathe her.

Look up Tainted Love by Soft Cell versus S.O.S by Rihanna.
Pon De Replay, Umbrella, and... alot of her songs are ripped off from stuff from the '80s mostly.


John Bonham

Vanessa Hudgens' Baby Come back to me ripped of Avril Lavignes Complicated .


You played me
Betrayed me
Your love was nothing but a game
Portrait a role
You took control,
I couldn't help but fall
So deep
But now I see things clear
