If you're gonna create a thread that asks for examples, you should give a few of your own to get the ball rolling.

U2 - Vertigo

Sonic Youth - Dirty Boots

Not lyrically but the guitar riff was stolen by edge, but he made it sound so much better

If you're going with this, you should also include in that list:
The Supremes - You Can't Hurry Love
The Jam - A Town Called Malice
Elvis Costello & The Attractions - Love For Tender

The Pogues - 'Turkish Song Of The Damned'
Flogging Molly - 'Another Bag Of Bricks'
Manic Street Preachers - 'Tsunami'

And there's probably only been four Ramones songs ever written, but that's not a bad thing. Gabba gabba hey.

Some good examples...


And some, I'm convinced don't know the true definition of a melody.


Come on there has to be other examples.
