* The main riff in Music/DirEnGrey's "New Age Culture" sounds similar to the riff succeeding the chorus in {{Clawfinger}}'s "15 Minutes of Fame".

Added DiffLines:

* Wham!'s "Last Christmas" sounds like a mashup of Music/BarryManilow's "Can't Smile Without You" and Kool & The Gang's "Joanna". In fact, the writers of the Manilow song sued Music/GeorgeMichael and settled out of court.

* Assemblage 23's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azr7c5a_x9c "Otherness"]] is suspiciously similar to Depeche Mode's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxUpJSGpCWM "It's No Good"]].

** The instrumental backing to the verses in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_jQSp2vkM8 "Afterglow"]] is similar to the [[{{MOD}} S3M]] song [[http://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=168003 "Forbidden Night"]] by Mysterium.
** The intro chords of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5ovbeecQhk "Bravery"]] resemble [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3hc64wzTvE "Rapture"]] from ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}''.

* Swedish singer Ted Gärdestad's 1979 EurovisionSongContest entry "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EePXylI7TPI Satellit]]" is infamously similar to Music/{{Toto}}'s breakthrough hit "Hold The Line". Gärdestad's guitarist had jammed with the then-unknown Toto in Los Angeles, and unaware that they'd just started climbing the charts, figured he'd get away with borrowing the most striking bits.

* Howard Devoto was originally a member of the Music/{{Buzzcocks}} and came up with a certain ascending minor-key guitar riff. He left to start his own band, Magazine, and included the riff in his song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybUqM8jf3mU Shot By Both Sides]]. Pete Shelley, meanwhile, liked the riff so much that he used it in his own song, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKd--mBvG5I Lipstick]]

* The chorus from LadyAntebellum's "Need You Now" sounds a whole lot like the chorus from the Alan Parsons Project's "Eye In the Sky".

* Helalyn Flowers did this with at least two of their songs. "Your Killer Toy", particularly the chorus, is similar to Music/{{Pink}}'s "U & Ur Hand", and "Crystal Bullet" is this to Music/DuranDuran's "Rio" and "Sunrise".
