I just read this article about an artist and her record label to hand over $2.7 million for making a song that was too similar to a another song.

https://www.themix.net/2019/08/katy-...tian-rap-song/


Collateral is a small band,
I don't think Bon Jovi would like to sue a small band...
and they are actually fans of "Bon Jovi, The Eagles, Richie Sambora, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper and Stevie Ray Vaughn."

The Katy Perry lawsuit is ridiculous. There's a sample that's slightly similar to that of some Christian rapper but for whatever reason an expert claimed it was therefore stolen. That rapper's lucky the decision was made by a jury which once again shows regular people have no idea how music works and therefore most have no idea what's copied and what's not.

I also think once Bon Jovi would start sueing bands it'd open a can of worms for them as a lot of what they've done is either very similar or just "inspired" by other bands.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Actually, there are shitloads of songs by other bands/artists that sound very similar to Bon Jovi. For example, Saturday Night and ITA say hello here:

Yeah, that's the riff/melody of Saturday night note for note!
I had stumbled upon this [0:20 onwards], and noticed similarities with Bon Jovi's Unbreakable riff,:

‪that is not a so small band in South America, you can hear BJ in a lot of their songs... I think everybody knows, at least in SA, that they are big BJ fans and actually they opened for Bon Jovi in Argentina ‘17 and during their opening act they said so... I guess BJ are cool with that, I mean they at least would know who are their opening act.‬

Ben Atkinson (Collateral drummer): "Without Bon Jovi there wouldn't be a Collateral."

Thumbs down

I dunno, I think its definitely ok to be influenced by a band and have similarities in the sound, but to blatantly rip off songs note for note...if it was me, I would be embarrassed to be in that band! The saturday night riff in that song even has the same guitar tone, and the guy is trying (badly) to sing in Jon's style. It's just awful.

Another interesting thing about the Saturday night rip-off, it's playing it how it's played live. On the studio version the riff is played a full octave down on the lower strings and I feel like that's the version most people know.

And here's another BJ rip-off band singing in Spanish - play this song back-to-back with ITA and you'll be shocked by the similarities...

Btw, Airbag (the band behind the Saturday Night rip-off) also have a song called "Doctora", which sounds strangely familiar:

Bad Medicine aside, when the drums kick in during the intro, it's basically Enter Sandman.

The other track is just as blatant, even the bass drum usage is the same as for In These Arms. But I'll admit that the keys also readily lift stuff from Always.
