They were plagiarised and settled out of court

plagiarised? More inspired I would think.

Although now you just have to use the same chords and you are in court.

Jet Black looking nervously towards his drumkit...

I guess GreenfieldĀ didnā€™t spot HughĀ playing the keyboards with a drum stick then!

Mind you, I thought Dave looked pretty convincing as frontmanšŸ‘.

Plus one to that. As much as I like the stones in particular I think the Vikings did less plundering. Then there is Led Zepā€¦

Ā tenuous link I'd say, now Duchess and the Manics Tolerate is another story altogether.

And listen to the bassline line to Nice & Sleazy, then to one of the mid section breaks in Carry on Wayward Son by Kansas and thereā€™s not that much difference. Similarly the verses onĀ Duchess and Surrender by Cheap Trick bear more than a passing resemblance. Should point out Iā€™m not knocking The Stranglers here, great band, loved them since the late 70s.

yes, see what you mean with Surrender, one of my justifications for nicking idea's when writing a song is they probably stole from someone elseĀ šŸ˜ƒ

Playback is not their thing for sure.Ā šŸ¤£

I love the wine bottle fiddling by a ... wine seller : excellentĀ way to loop a loop.

Loved the Stranglers until Hugh Cornwell departure.

That said, Muse (that I don't like at all because they have just copy-paste Ultravox! and never cited them as an "influence") have taken the playback joke a step ahead with great fun up to the interview...

On the subject of 'Inspired by' I always thought there's a touch of the Dr Who Theme in that one...

Ā The feel of a song will get you sued. Although I reckon the woke mobĀ wanted this one taken off the airwaves.

Quite right too - 4 and a half minutes of dreadful misogyny. My daughter was raped while out of it, does that make her a 'good girl'?
