It’s not called ripping off music, it’s called “Sampling”. Of course. Because creativity and originality have become so pointless in the music business that they’ve even came up with a creative name for stealing. Everyone hears similarities from time to time, but after hearing some surprising nuances from this creative mash-up video, the problem may be worse than we all thought.
Lady Gaga stealing from Madonna, Sublime from The Beatles and even Vanilla Ice taking the riff from David Bowie/Queen are somewhat acceptable because the final product is still decent. But Nickelback ripping off Nickelback? Shocking they didn’t see how much the first song sucked and still decided to repeat everything. Would be like modern day society making a clone of Hitler.
