Top 10 Rip Off Songs

The Top Ten

1 Surfin’ USA - The Beach Boys (Original: Sweet Little Sixteen - Chuck Berry)

It's exactly the same song. I have to give credit to Brian Wilson for writing great lyrics and to the Beach Boys for really tightening the sound, but Chuck Berry definitely deserved the recognition he eventually received.

2 Born This Way - Lady Gaga (Original: Express Yourself - Madonna)

In my opnion these two are different the only thing that these two songs have in common is the same concept of the song I love lady gaga and Madonna but Madonna is always the queen of pop and always will be better

3 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin (Original: Taurus - Spirit)

There is no doubt that the opening guitar riff was from Spirit, that Page learned when they toured with Spirit.

It was established as not plagiarism already. Let it go.


4 Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio (Original; Pastime Paradise - Stevie Wonder)
5 Dani California - Red Hot Chili Peppers (Original: Mary Jane's Last Dance - Tom Petty)
6 Why Don’t You Get a Job? - The Offspring (Original: Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da - The Beatles)

"my friend has a girlfriend and he hates that bitch" need I say more

7 My Sweet Lord - George Harrison (Original: He's So Fine - The Chiffons)
8 Fergalicious - Fergie (Original: Supersonic - J.J. Fad)
9 Don’t Matter - Akon (Original: Ignition - R.Kelly)
10 Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice (Original: Under Pressure - Queen and David Bowie)

Ice Ice Baby is an insult to Queen and David Bowie.

The Contenders

11 Warning - Green Day (Original: Picture Book - The Kinks)
12 Coming 2 America - Ludacris (Original: Mozart’s Requiem)
13 Given to Fly - Pearl Jam (Original: Going to California - Led Zeppelin)

This is not a rip off song. Every song sounds similar to another - Sabbath

14 What I Got - Sublime (Original: Lady Madonna - The Beatles)
15 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj (Original: Baby Got Back - Sir Mix a Lot)
16 Best Song Ever - One Direction (Original: Baba O'Riley - The Who)
17 Stay With Me - Sam Smith (Original: I Won't Back Down - Tom Petty)
18 Someone to Call My Lover - Janet Jackson (Original: Gymnopedie No. 1 - Erik Satie)
19 Love Me Tender- Elvis Presely (Original: Aura Lee- Traditional)

It's not a plagiarized song!

20 I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas (Original: Take a Dive - Bryan Pringle)

Clearly this is fact!

21 Rock Me - One Direction (Original: We Will Rock You - Queen)

No, no, NO! This is bullcrap! And everyone, ' EVERYONE knows Queen's We Will Rock You. Why steal from a song that everyone knows?

22 The Police - Don't Stand So Close to Me (Original the Beatles - I Wanna Hold Your Hand)
23 Kid Rock - All Summer Long (Original: Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London)

This guy ripped off a very super underrated artist named Warren Zevon. Warren Zevon was so underrated and now that Kid Rock stole one of his songs and made it his own , people now aren't noticing that that song was originally from Zevon.

24 Ghostbusters Theme - Ray Parker Jr. (Original: I Want a New Drug - Huey Lewis and the News)
25 Down In It - Nine Inch Nails (Original: Dig It - Skinny Puppy)
