Are today's recording artist so lazy they can't even mask ...

the chord progressions when ripping off a song? You can't just use Radiohead's instrumental track on Creep ... change the lyrics ... and claim it as your own. Even when you steal, you have to try. What the hell was Lana Del Rey thinking (Get Free)?

And I'm fully aware that Radiohead bit off a chord from The Air I Breathe when they recorded Creep. However, they still gave the original writers credit even when the chords were well masked and only hints of it in Creep.

  Vanilla Ice was sampling, not stealing. ** -- JMHoo 01/12/2018 1:50PM
