In this corner, Devo's "Gut Feeling/(Slap Your Mammy)":

And in this corner, Neil Young's "I'm the Ocean":

Gut Feeling/Slap Your Mammy is the greatest Devo song of all time. It STILL kills me.

I don't think there's any theft here. It's a chord progression that's so beloved and effective it seems like public domain.

neil gets a pass...just for being neil. And he collaborated with DEVO, giving him a DOUBLE PASS
