    Okay, I've heard this song called The Hills about a thousand times around and it bugged the fuck out of me that it sounds like something I've heard before and I realized, that while it's not the same song....it sounds a hell of a lot like Depeche Mode's the Sweetest perfection and the sound is a complete ripoff...in my opinion
    What say you?

    Depeche Mode

    The Hills

    If the gimmick is making shitty music - then yeah... It's infringement, alright.

    At most it's the same chord progression. Which happens in music a LOT.
    But I hear it too.

    You must have listened to Violator a bzillion times to make the similarity between these two. :D

    I'd like to help you out but there's no fucking way I'm listening to either of those songs.
