There's come a time in everyone's life when you've thought to yourself "Hey, X's riff sound just like Y's!"

Here's a few that I think are actually viable

Wow a lot of those were just like yeah coudl definintly be nearly the same notes but rather different tune and whatnot. But some were just like HOLY f*** IT IS EXACTLY THE SAME. The Deicide v Shadows fall was the biggest one to me.

There are so many rip offs its not even funny .. If you go to a bar on the week end you will have 5 bands say " this is our new song " and it sounds just like something on youtube . Everything that can bne done on the guitar has been done , so were all just ripping licks off . But the guys that just change the name of a song and call it there own need shot !

I think that's kinda what's fun about music though. Is that it's taking what has been done and heard and re introducing it in a new way cutting and pasting into different arrangements.

It's also the same argument techno guys use against us is that "manual?" instruments have been used to the max and they are now useless and whatever. But I disagree, and digress lol.

The chorus of Are You Dead Yet by COB also sounds exactly like the Iron Maiden Papa Roach one.

It's not like these are very complex riffs or anything.

I was at a show last night, for Skindred, and I thought they were covering Pantera for a second.

The ones that pissed me off the most were Morbid Ange/Korn and Carcass/Children of Bodom because I could totally see the latter of both groups rip-off the former intentionally.
