I listened to this one but most of these don't sound ripped off to me.
Must be because I'm used to worse, more blatant rip-offs.
I immediately recognized Ishin Denshin's similarities to Dr. Mario
Dr. Mario seriously just sounds like Dr. Mario
That's just called "arrangement" (trembling voice)
Conversely, don't you actually think it's amazing that they turned that Dr. Mario music into a song? w
I don't think they'd be bashed as much if they came out in this generation
They were already copying on purpose, what with the title "Locolotion".
They were a band with that kind of stance and should've been recognized for that, but then tons of stupid people started bashing them left and right.
You can't call "Locolotion" plagiarism, that's more like "sampling".
They just didn't get permission.
They just stood out too much.
It may be called plagiarizing, but I think they still have talent for being able to compose catchy songs like that
One's view of them will change once they get to listen to the album
Most of the things that become popular are being accused of plagiarizing something else
I think they're just enjoying their lives since they've already amassed quite an amount
It seems that Orange Range are being considered good again because of how horrible Japanese music is these days.
People make fun of them, but their melodies are actually quite nice
I just think that they should change their stance once the guys they copied from directly file a complaint
They did say that it's all about ripping off stuff.
Their downfall was that it wasn't categorized as "arrangements".
You can't call that sampling. It was clearly ripping off with malicious intent. Of course they'd be criticized for that.
But even before talking about plagiarism, why the heck were people praising them despite that bad singing and playing?
I played quite a lot of Dr. Mario, but I never noticed what they copied from that.
The comparison videos too troublesome so I haven't watched it.
I used to like Orange Range's songs.
Their melodies were good.
Their presence really was amazing at one point.
Now they've just disappeared, as if everything was a lie.
Honestly, I think Orange Range would still be popular if they came out now -- even if they were still in their early days.
There are a lot of dark and gloomy men who played in bands, but these guys were really pleasant.
They ripped off, got charged, settled it out of court, and then suddenly said it was a cover.
That gave them the worst image.
They even made the title sound like the original, so it's too much if you start calling them rip-offs
Rip-off aside, they left strong impacts with their memorable melodies and their lyrics without messages combined with the horrible singing voice and interesting sound. They must've actually been an amazing group, in a sense.
Can you even consider Orange Range as a band?
I always thought they were just some musical group who sounded like delinquents rapping.
They rapped and called themselves MCs, so even the hip-hop crowd dissed them
People who are serious with music hate them.
They were only going for entertainment value with their cheapness.
But it's not like ORANGE RANGE were the only group who plagiarized.
There are almost no singer/songwriters you hear of who came from music universities, yet look how some of the ones we have are been coming up with all these good songs one after another.
People say you can imitate the chord progression but not the melody, but I still don't get the difference up to now.
I hate how they're being recognized again these days.
People are too fickle-minded.
If there are different artists who plagiarize, the difference in their character must be what separates the ones who get criticized from the ones who don't. I think that The Flipper's Guitar and Kenji Ozawa would've been bashed as much if they came out during the same time as Range, since they've all got annoying characters.
Even Spitz has a lot of rip-offs, but they're not being criticized because, well, they're not annoying.
I do find it amazing how Orange Range's songs are so catchy and memorable.
ONE OK may be popular now, but they're not that catchy, and once their populairty passes, I think people will forget about them.
Plagiarism has been around since the time of the Beatles so there's no more point in making noise about it. Orange Range was just too blatant.
I liked all the songs in their album MUSIQ
They were popular, hence they were bashed.
Fate of those whom people become jealous of.
I did like how they didn't have any sort of messages in their songs, and it seemed like these youngsters tried to live life to the fullest during their youth.
It's impressive how they became that popular despite being really technically bad.
Aren't they technically the worst band ever to become popular?
When you try to make a song that sells, you'd eventually wind up with similar chord progressions so everything sounds the same. That was like an unwritten law within the music industry, but these guys went out in the open and said "We copy stuff", which is probably why they're hated.
Orange Range was horrible.
It's just that the current mainstream music scene is in such a catastrophic state, that even a band like this is being reminisced.
