I hate these guys. I really do. It's bad enough that there music is lame and faggoty, but the fact that they rip off so many other bands just adds insult to injury. And then they have the nerve to say Nirvana "sold out". What a bunch of pompous-ass hypocrites. I've started hearing their new song on the radio "what have you done" or something like that. It's the biggest Beatles ripoff I've ever heard. With each new single from these losers, I get more and mroe sickened.

Anyone else feel the same way?

these guys used the riff from the Ramones song "The KKK Took My Baby Away" and a few other songs from other bands. they truly are a ripoff band. they recycle stuff used by other bands.

If you're going to say Oasis rip off the Beatles, you're wrong. They really don't sound anything like the Beatles.

Dive, I've heard about Zeppelin stealing melodies from other bands that weren't famous...could you give me some examples? I don't know why I'm even asking this, I don't even listen to them so it doesn't really affect me, I'm just curious.

i seriosly dislike jet. they are so fucking crappy. i hate it when people say a band just sucks all together, because its all opinions. but there is bad music, and good music, and jet is just plain bad music. they dont do anything remotely original. they sound like they would be from the 80s. the type of music they play has been done to death. all in all they deserve to rot in hell......

Oasis haven't just ripped off the Beatles, but several other bands.

check these websites out, it shows what they have ripped off:

Oasis and the legacy of borrowing (http://www.zoo.co.uk/~z0001530/magpie.htm)

there was this one good website that I found a few months ago, but I can't seem to find it now.

i dont think ledzep stole melodies n such, but some of their songs are covers, albeit way different

songs such as babe im gonna leave you, whole lotta love, and when the levee breaks
