Tom Petty Vs RHCP


Recommended Posts


Have THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS ripped off TOM PETTY's famous hit 'Mary Jane's Last Dance'? What is being dubbed as "damning evidence" has been made available in MP3 format courtesy of the Dan Gaffney Morning Show on American radio station WGMD - you be the judge...

Wow, that's a bit ridiculous that they've just blatantly ripped that off. What are the chances they could get sued for that?

On another note, do all US radio stations start with the letter W? And do they all have at least one DJ who sounds like that? Seriously, that could be any generic radio station in the US.

Plenty of artists do it.

They just get away with it.

Most of them are "influences" - another way for bands like Puddle Of Mudd to rip off Nirvana. But in the case of this, the sound of the song is too unique for plagarism to be accidental.

I get the strange feeling to blame John Fruscinate (sp?) for some reason...
