I played through the entire Green Day: Rock Band career last night alongside Sean, Ben, and my buddy Ross to get the "Won't Make It for Dinner" achievement (reach the credits within 12 hours as part of a 4-player band) and had a great time. But I couldn't believe how much these guys have consistently and blatantly stolen from other songs throughout their career. Don't believe me? Take a listen for yourself.There are plenty of instances throughout the track list in Green Day: Rock Band that sound a little too familiar, but you just can't put your finger on it. The following examples do not fall into that category. These five comparisons showcase undeniable, brazen theft. How has Green Day not been busted after all this time?
[Note: I tried whenever possible to link to official band videos. In
Green Day's case, they have blocked embedding so you may have to follow
the link to watch the video on YouTube.]
I have GI's Matt Helgeson to thank for this first example comparing Green Day's "Warning" to "Picture Book" by the Kinks
