When in Rome: Of Dirty Heads and Sublime


There's a new Sublime single getting plenty of airplay these days.  It's actually Sublime with Rome, since Bradley Nowell missed the 27 Club by thiiiiis much.

Here's Sublime with Rome's Panic.

Previously receiving plenty of airplay was Lay Me Down, a sweet little ditty by Dirty Heads featuring Rome.  Here's that one:

I happen to like both tunes, because I'm a bit of an idiot that way, but they sound awfully similar.  Sure, it's the same Sublime-esque sound and the same vocalist, but the similiarities don't end there.  Parts of the melody are nearly identical.

What do you think?  Did Rome rip off Rome?
