1)"They ripped off everything!" - It was dumb of them not to credit, and they probably deserved most of the lawsuits, but they made most of those songs their own, IMO.
2)"Tolkien!!!" - Christ, this is like three of their songs, and not even their most famous ones.
NP: Joe Jackson - "Steppin' Out" - God this is one of the weirdest hit songs ever.
