Devin Townsend & Machine Head’s Robb Flynn Speak On “Beyond The Pale” Allegedly Lifting A Strapping Young Lad Riff

The social media “riff police” has taken to calling out Machine Head’s Robb Flynn for allegedly stealing a riff off of Strapping Young Lad‘s track “Love?” in their newly released single, “Beyond The Pale“. Check out both tracks below, and read Townsend and Machine Head vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn’s discussion on the matter.

People asking me about riff similarities: I don’t have an opinion really. I’ve written riffs my whole career that sound like something else.

I’ve used whole themes from other albums, movies or soundtracks. Art is a collage of your experiences, you taking clippings and reassemble.

Heres the best part about comparison of MH new song to ‘Love’ I basically ripped off the SYL chorus from this song: https://t.co/0QWpBGowBD

Shout out to @dvntownsend for being so cool. The Riff Police pulled me over, I got a $300 infraction for that one!! Like Dime bag always used to tell me “we’re all just sharing riffs man”. https://t.co/DXO8BmqTLR

Got a lot of respect for you Devin, super talented musician, amazing producer (as the palaces burn production crushes all!)

And while I would proudly admit that I stole a Riff from you… Was just a happy accident.

Riff on brother!! https://t.co/G8NXNcJ9Ln
