Please tell me this is a joke. Metallica is claiming rights to the chord sequence E, F. Says Lars Ulrich:
We're not saying we own those two chords, individually - that would be ridiculous. We're just saying that in that specific order, people have grown to associate E, F with our music."
We're also coming to associate complete idocy. Keep it up.
Update: Probably a hoax. My bad. See the comments.
