Third-Eye Blind...BLATENT S.B.S. RIP OFF!!

This may have already been discussed but holy crap...I can't stand the fact that I heard a Third-Eye Blind song on my Sirius radio that is a BLATENT rip off of Sunday Bloody Sunday!

If Joe Satriani can sue Coldplay, and Tom Petty the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, U2 should sue Third Eye Blind for this:

Listen to "Non-Dairy Creamer"

I really doubt U2 will sue anyone after the Negativland crap.

I don't hear it.

And Third Eye Blind haven't been relevant in over a decade, so I don't think U2 are that concerned.

Good point on the Negativeland thing....HAHA I almost forgot about that!

U2 really doesn't need to sue anyone and I wouldn't even suspect that to ever happen. It kinda pissed me off when I heard that Tom Petty was suing The Red Hot Chilli Peppers when both bands have had highly successful careers regardless of a recently "ripped off" chord progression. (Same with the Satriani/Coldplay situation that has been in the news!)

Call me crazy but the Third-Eye Blind "Non-Dairy Creamer" song sounds WAAY more like a rip off than any of the Coldplay/Satriani or Petty/Peppers rip offs!

I was just curious to see if anyone else agrees and hears the rip off!!

I don't hear it.

But I have to say, this is the dumbest song (dumbest lyrics) I've ever heard.

I posted about this in another thread but its more relevant here.

That lawsuit is so stupid. Even if Coldplay "ripped" the chord progression, who gives a flying f**k. As far as I'm concerned to non-music technical people like me, its a small part of a song, there are so many other things (like the other instruments, vocal melody, lyrics, the actual sound of the guitar, the effects, the actual notes played, extra layers, the mixing, etc).

Just look at U2's version of Elevation and the Tomb Raider mix. Its the same song but the album version is a mediocre song and the single version is scorching just because of the way its mixed.

And hell, if anyone was going to sue Coldplay, it would be U2, because Lovers in Japan has pretty much the same guitar part as ISHFWILF. However, its a totally different song because of what they did with everything else. In a way I like that they are kinda playing off" I still haven't found what I'm looking for", with a song that's lyrics allude to someone finding what they've been looking for.

Oasis' Bag It Up has some bits which kinda sound like SBS as well (chord progression might be similar? I'm not technical enough to know, and drums around 3:30 are similar) but it still is a very different song to me. Theres just too many aspects to a song to say this one thing being the same or similar = plagiarism.

Also I'd like to note that Bono has mentioned in the past that "we took the riff from so and so" so U2 also builds their songs off other songs once in a while.

I really doubt U2 will sue anyone when they have absolutely no reason to, either. I listened to the song, and it is in no way a rip-off of SBS. It has a completely different chord progression, a completely different bass line, a completely different drum pattern, a completely different vocal delivery, etc. In order to launch a successful plagiarisation lawsuit in the music business, there has to be convincing evidence that the offending melody has been intentionally lifted from another song; I don't even have to pick up my guitar and work out "NonDairy Creamer" to know that this isn't the case.

Soreplay really did rip Satriani off. Similarity is uncanny.

I want to sue Third-Eye Blind for making my ears bleed for the 15 seconds I was attempting to find more similarities to SBS than a somewhat similar chord progression during.

Remember when their lead singer dated Charlize Theron?

Third Eye Blind was always better than Matchbox 20 but worse than Goo Goo Dolls. Together those bands made up the Axis of Bland.

I will always like "We are the Normal" by the Goo Goo Dolls.

That is all.

That's a good tune. If I recall correctly, the Goo Goo Dolls were good at one point - though I could very well be confusing them with the Hudu Gurus.

TEV love U2. I have a live version of deep inside of you, where old-matey singer says to the guitarist 'do that thing U2 taught you!' and the guy plays I Will Follow. Then the singer says "thats the first song I ever learnt how to masturbate to!
