    If the Damned had a dollar for every time they were ripped off, they wouldn’t have to put out so many compilation albums of all their genius.

    Take note of Sigur Rós’ “Olsen Olsen”. [released 1999]
    It’s most similar to the Damned’s Life Goes On.
    Here’s a youtube video with the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2GjOC79gVI

    That’s interesting. Another use of this so successful riff. And all songs made of it are completely different but all good, although the ones I prefer are those by KJ and Nirvana.

    That sounds more like “Message in a Bottle” by the Police than “Come as You Are.”
