So if you haven’t heard yet, Stone Temple Pilots are back with a brand new single called Between the Lines. Local radio station 106.7 KROQ started playing the song recently and after hearing it for the first time I found a distinct similarity between it and Nirvana’s “Stay Away”.
Any die hard Nirvana fans that have heard the song probably picked up on the similarities as quickly as I did. When Between the Lines reaches the bridge it goes into a sequence that is very reminiscent of the verses to Nirvana’s “Stay Away”. Below are clips from the new Stone Temple Pilots song Between the Lines and a clip from Nirvana’s “Stay Away”. What do you think? Strong similarity or blatant ripoff?
