    I was gonna add "Satisfaction" to the cover songs thread as a goof, since it always sounded suspiciously close to "Nowhere to Run" to me.

    The wife then suggested this thread idea.

    Music is really funny when it comes to what is stolen and what isn't. Isn't something like 5 notes max can be repeated from an existing song?

    Derp.

    I thought I posted this in the music forum. Someone wanna move this for me? :facepalm:

    I think you're right, though, Vashier.

    IIRC, Vanilla Ice attempted to defend himself by claiming he added a sixteenth note to the bass line of "Under Pressure", and thus did not rip it off.

    Suge Knight really should've dropped him.
