I'm not kidding. Listen to Zenon's melody at 00:45

and then listen to Skrillex intro:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSeNSzJ2-Jw

Notice the 5 month time frame between the two.

How do I report this? lol.

That's a coincidence, not theft.

even with headphones on, I saw little to no similarity let alone outright stealing of a melody from this tune. I pretty much doubt that Skrillex even knows what NewGrounds is!

Better report Skrillex to the NG Audio Mods.


Need some music for a flash or game? Check it out. If none of this works send me a PM, I'm taking requests.

I'm gonna put it blatantly... It's dubstep. Most of it sounds the same, especially if it's famous dubstep. It's like saying, hey that guy stole my drum beat! when using a 3 piece drum kit playing a punk rock song. You just can't call it out.

Skrillex signed up to Newgrounds in 2005, but he seemed un-active at 2006, but he might have logged on and found nothing interesting.

Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites took 3 months in the progress, and 3 months before it was released, came Zenon's track.

If he did log on during 2010, then the faggot deserves the cancer he has.

That's some intense detective work.

It was 2005, people were too busy with Billy Mays and the web.

Coming late on this thread, had to say, Verdict, No theft and Zenon wins with the better of the two tracks.

Um, last time I checked he doesn't live with Deadmau5 in Toronto. Also, 20 years old... seriously?
