The guitar line in the chorus of this piece of shit:



is a complete rip-off of the melody from this:



I think there are similarities throughout, actually.

I seem to remember they openly admitted that when the song came out, saying it was a "homage" or whatever.

More than a homage, the melody is exactly the same. If they're not paying Kraftwerk royalties, they should be.

I assume, it would have had to be cleared with the copyright holders before it was released.

After a quick look on Wackypedia, it seems that Kraftwerk "gave permission" for the tune to be used. They have subsequently gone down in my estimation.

Riff round about the 2:20 mark

The Imperial March from Star Wars.

I always wondered if it was only me that had noticed this, but apparantly not.

Sorry W, the Imperial March in Pure Holocaust is very well noted indeed. I spotted that when I first heard the track on the first Blackend compilation (I think) in the late 90's, and I've heard it pointed out shit loads of times since then.

True though, obviously.

I pointed it out before Immortal were even formed and also before George Lucas was born.

At the risk of playing upto my Forum Role too much, though, my reply to WATP was a bit wankery, sorry. No kitten .jpg, though.

Somebody once pointed out that Megadeth's When sounds like some Metallica song at some point but I can't remember which one.

Another Metallica sound alike is Die Happy's Real to Enter Sandman.

That's a coincidence, I think Mustaine mentioned being in Metallica once.

Its more Diamond Head than Metallica, but then its a song Metallica covered. Some people have mentioned that part of it recalls The Call of Ktulu too. I don't know about that, but the long, nasal, whiny intro made me want to punch him square in the face.

He was really reasonable about it, though, and don't seem bitter or obsessed.

Well you know Mustaine, such an easy going and humble chap.
