One Direction ripped off Def Leppard and you also have to give credit to the artist that have permission to redo a song like Eminem redid Toy soldiers. which was sang in the 80s by Martika about drug addiction.

#62, you are my new best friend! Hating Nickelback is just some stupid fad.. Their songs are similar because it's what their fans like and what they like to play. Some people I swear..... *tsk tsk*

What? Like Flo rida, eminen, pit bull, Acon etc... The list is never ending. If you like an artist-- then like them. Don't stop because OTHERS tell you, you shouldn't.

Off the top of my head, (I'm sure there's more) in the song "You're Never Over" he took the song "Cry Little Sister" which I recognized from the "Lost Boys" soundtrack and "sampled" it. Personally I don't care and love both songs. Just saying it's done more than you know by many artists.

sampling songs is different than ripping them off. doing a cover is a tribute, doing a bad cover is an atrocity and charging money to people for doing a bad cover is an act of war. rap music mainly uses electronic synthesizers and music samples to make beats because it's supposed to showcase the poetry, not the music. EDM mostly takes original work and tries to give it new life in a new genre. Flo Rida takes EDM and tries to put poetry over it like rap so you get a weird fusion there. sometimes

Look on the bright side. Now you have a load of new, 'original' artists for you to look up that you will probably enjoy if you enjoyed the bands that supposedly copied them
