Now what do you think this sounds like?
I wouldn't think anyone would miss the similarity!
I hope they gave them song writing credits.

One of my favourites is when Green Day BLATANTLY ripped themselves off



It's almost the exact same amount of time into the song too

Did they think no one would realise???

I love Supergrass’ pumping on your stereo - especially the simplistically brilliant film clip - but they lifted it from Rebel Rebel surely

I haven't read the entire thread (23 pages is kind of long) but has anyone mentioned "Bad Girlfriend" by Theory of a Deadman being almost exactly the same as "Fire Woman" by The Cult?

Wasn't "Going to California" a folk rip off also?

Page pretty much admits his influences. No shame in that as they made great music.
Page didn't admit to a damn thing until he got sued a few times. And admitting one's influences is VERY different from giving them the credits (and royalties) they deserve when they did the actual song writing.
