Matt's Work Plagiarised?

Recommended Posts

Well I for one will acknowledge that you are a fabulous bass player who I like to think has influenced me a little bit ;)

Thank you but Jaco was fabulous I'm pretty good...

there have been countless people on this bored who have brought this topic up, but even though it might get a little tiresome, i never get tired of how terrible the video is for "cry."

 

 

Please forgive my ignorance. I honestly didn't mean to bring up some tired old topic and waste everybody's time.

 

That said, it is a pretty bad video.

Really? I can think of three bands just from within the UK that are huge musical influences for me. In order I guess they'd be Porcupine Tree, Radiohead (not their new stuff), and Muse.

 

I agree though that Matt is definitely one of our best musical exports (even if he's only exported in very small amounts, like a great Belgian beer). Some of Canada's other recent contributions to popular music include Nickelback (the Stella Artois of our bands, massed produced shit in other words), Avril Lavigne, Simple Plan, Theory of a Dead Man, etc. You see my point.

 

It's not good to get down on your country's whole music scene though. Some of the better Canadian bands I thoroughly enjoy include Arcade Fire, Rush, The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Holy Fuck, among others.

Yep. Well, I can't help how I feel. Matthew Good and MGB are like a breath of fresh air to me. I don't have a downer on Brit music; I like Elbow, James Morrison, David Gray, Ash. The operative word is 'like'; I LOVE MG / MGB...

Coldplay and Joe Satriani should get together and record one song together because the mash up of If I Could Fly and Viva La Vida is fucking incredibly awesome and I love it. Haha!

 

If I Could Fly is actually my favorite Joe Satriani song, and I enjoy Viva La Vida as well.

 

My take on all this is everyone is bound to steal from everyone else, or basically there's so much shit out there you can't help but find some (coincidental) overlap.

I have made this point many times. Nobody is 100% original. Everyone is influenced by someone else. Beck got tips from someone....Led Zeppelin from someone....Beatles......same thing....it goes all the way back to the first caveman who beat two rocks together to create a rhythm who was heard by another caveman, who did it for his tribe.

I just want to make it VERY CLEAR...I am in no way claiming that I wrote the song...just the riff!!!! Matt wrote the "song" so in fact it was his property.Even if he hated it.There.

That's crazy and funny. I'd say it was plagerized.

Then you didn't read the thread.

It's one thing to sell riff, but am I the only one to whom it seems really lame to buy a riff? I would think you certainly couldn't walk around claiming to have artistic merit if you just bought the rights to someone else's work. I mean, I certainly wouldn't be able to call myself a comedian if I bought the rights to George Carlin's material or something.
