    Hi all,

    i just realized and made the (tenuous?) connection of a instance that Dinosaur Jr.’s song "WATER" on their album GREEN MIND was stolen by a japanese band. the japanese band in question is L’Arc~en~ciel, and their song name is "LOVE FLIES" on their album "REAL"

    Dinosaur Jr. "Water":

    L’Arc~En~Ciel "Love Flies":

    notice the chorus part of LOVE FLIES rampantly steals the song WATER from dinosaur jr. the guitar solo also follows closely from "WATER" as well

    what do you guys think after listening to this back to back?

    It sounds pretty similar.Lots of songs are recycled and most times no lawsuits are filed

    I know this is an old topic, but for another example of this sort of recycling check out Performance And Cocktails by The Stereophonics for the chunks of songs shamelessly ripped from Without A Sound.
