Did These Famous Musicians Steal Their Hit Songs?

We stumbled across an incredible blog post from the folks over at Cracked.com. Written by Mohammed Shariff, the article analyzes seven artists who practiced “legitimate theft” of music including:

  • Green Day
  • Oasis
  • Radiohead
  • The Beatles
  • The Strokes
  • John Williams
  • Madonna

Can you blame these artists? If you research the topic long enough you could easily find other songs that have been “stolen” over the years. Madonna is on the list above…but the circle continues with Lady Gaga “stealing” from Madonna with “Born this Way” (see the video comparison below). What other artists can you identify with similar songs and melodies?
