+10 points if you can tell me which modern rock band nicked a melody from this song

That would be coldplay. Did they at least have the balls to admit they nicked the melody this time? Or did they just rip off yet another artist to line their own pockets? I think their plagiarism law suit count is now at 4.

Apparently Kraftwerk gave permission. Wonder if they get any royalties?

 

The band received permission from the electronic music German band Kraftwerk to use the main riff from their song "Computer Love" (German: Computerliebe), from their 1981 studio LP Computer World (German: Computerwelt), for "Talk", replacing Kraftwerk's synthesizers with guitars.

wow - i didn't know that; I am used to hearing Kraftwerk inspired synth-pop, but it makes a change to hear their stuff inspiring a guitar band
