* Meshuggah, IllWill, Textures, and Gojira has some very similar rhythm pattern [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrOIl9xcEws as seen here]]. This rhythm pattern is popular among Technical Metal bands.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIxw6Ksrq68 Race Day]] is this to Music/TearsForFears' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST86JM1RPl0 Everybody Wants to Rule The World]].


Added DiffLines:

* Music/GloriaEstefan's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFjjF9tg5U4 Rhythm Is Gonna Get You]] quite obviously rips off Music/MichaelJackson's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Uj3zitETs4 Wanna be Startin Somethin']].

* "You're So Cool" by Nicole Dollanganger closely resembles "Robbers" by The 1975. One could dismiss it as a coincidence (since both songs fall under the IndiePop genre) if the final line of "Robbers" wasn't "you look so cool".

** "Riding On a Rocket" similarly has one that resembles TheWho's "Boris the Spider" quite closely.

** They've also, had other songs that sound suspiciously like others. Examples include [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdLdqeNl5nQ "Social Casualty"] having the exact same instrumental as Music/{{Fall Out Boy}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhG-vLZrb-g "Sugar, We're Goin' Down"]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T6o0iMfTbY "18"]] [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment randomly]] stealing the instrumental to Music/{{Foo Fighters}}' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBG7P-K-r1Y "Everlong"]] at 1:54, & [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0X7u_mmREE "Jet Black Heart"]] sounding like a slowed down version of Music/{{Panic! At the Disco}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk8jV7r6VMk "Girls/Girls/Boys"]]. It's a wonder they haven't been sued, or the fact that a majority of their fanbase simply [[FandomBerserkButton refuses]] to even remotely acknowledge the similarities, defending the songs with the "argument" that "there's only enough chords in the world", rather than demanding better from their favorite band.
