Default The intro to Zwan's "Settle Down" is a rip off from New Order's "Dreams Never End"

I never noticed. Mostly because I listen to Movement much more than Zwan

Breaking news. Every led zep tune is a reworked blues standard.

Every song that is a rip off of a New Order song ends up being 10x better than the New Order one so its a wash.

Show me a rip off of 1983's "Blue Monday". Must be the ultimate song.





Oh, they ripped off themselves a few times..more. 1988...1995...

New Order is cool with me. I mean, I dunno about anything after they reformed or whatever like 2001 to present, I don't really care. But their OG stuff is legit.

eh, billy worked with them on one of their albums around the time he was in the zwans, so maybe they never even considered it or maybe never even heard it. because this would 100% be a winnable lawsuit.

to think otherwise is bananafish.

Absolutely a rip off. They should sue. Songs that hardly were ripoffs won big. Bigly. Huuuge. Believe me. No one understands that better than me. Im the best. My hands are huge too.

It's similar, but Settle Down is better.

"My Sweet Lord" was also better than "She's So Fine"...
