Joe Satriani Sues Coldplay Over Viva La Vida


Satch is suing Coldplay over their mega-hit Viva La Vida.

Seems like a blatant rip-off to me.

Same melody, same chord progression, same key, and same tempo. Whisky Tango Foxtrot?!

Hope Joe gets a fortune for this. People who rip off other people’s music and claim it as their own are lower than lawyers.

    They’re too similar to just be a coincidence.

    I think Coldplay’s originality (if it can be called that) ended when Chris Martin and Gwenyth Paltrow named their kids Apple and Moses.

    Looks like Satriani will definitely be getting his money. It’s equally as blatant as when Vanilla Ice ripped off Queen.

    And a better version of “Fix You”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwvs_8Q6I6k

    Cheers
