Have Coldplay ripped off a Kraftwerk riff ????


Recommended Posts

Well they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery - but at least they don't just rip samples off and use them like so many recent rap & pop stuff.


I'd be interested in knowing specifics here ... we have the TALK > Computer Love link but what are the others i.e, specific X&Y album track > specific other artist/ track? Any ideas? :huh:

I don't think you can rip off a riff if you readily acknowledge that you have, which they have, in a few different interviews.


If they never made mention of it, then yes, but I look at it like an homage.
