Muse - Knights of Cydonia ripoff ?

My brother stumbled across this breaks record today that blatantly uses the progression from KoC (with different lyrics).

I like breaks, and this song is awful.

 

Think the guys are aware of it? I bet their record label would be if they weren't asked for permission.

Whoa, that's pretty blatant. I think anyone marginally familiar with KoC would hear that & think it's a techno remix of KoC!

 

I'd say Muse/Warner have a solid copyright case with that one (if they care to pursue it, though who cares who this dc breaks is)

No silly I mean what song from Breaks are you guys talking about.

 

 

PS. Apologies for sounding like a dick, having an off day. :$

 

Naa, it's OK. :)

 

I was being daft, that's all. Long day and I'm bored. :p

No they don't, the lyrics are different, despite being the same melody and the bass is different and shuffled patterns like that have been popular for a while now.

 

But yeah, they have clearly been listening to Muse.
