From the first riff, I'm hearing the primary chord progression from a little known performer named Tommy Faragher, whose claim to fame was a Grammy nomination for some of the best tracks in John Travolta's follow-up to Saturday Night Fever, called Staying Alive. The track is "Look Out for Number One," and is worthy, not just as my proof to the lift but, because it's a fun trip back to see a 30-year younger Travolta.
And, the minute Sevenfold's M launches into the lyric, it's totally Metallica's "Enter Sandman."
It's not that A7x hasn't been accused of lifting others' riffs before...but, they don't really care.
How many other songs do you hear on this Music Friday?
