Did Guns N' Roses Rip Off Australian Crawl?

Listen to what J&A think about these two songs, plus hear some other songs they think are pretty similar!

Is Guns N' Roses' 1987 hit Sweet Child O' Mine a rip off of Australian Crawl's 1981 classic Unpublished Critics?

Max TV has pointed out similarities between the two songs - from the chord progression to the lead break, verse melody and one-syllable vocal in the chorus.

And while when you listen carefully, there are definitely some similarities, the overall consensus is it's purely a coincidence.

Nonetheless, it's a great excuse to listen back to these classics once again!

Compare the two songs for yourself...
