Ripping Off the Hag

You hear it all the time, bands suing others that rip off guitar licks, song lyrics, etc.  But seriously, why would someone attempt to take a guitar lick from Merle Haggard & another from Billy Squier and then destroy it?  I present to you, Locash Cowboys song "Hillbillies with Guitars" on the Mud Digger 5 album, along with and Merle Haggard's Mama Tried and Billy Squire's Don't Say You Love Me.  See if you hear what I'm hearing.

Locash Cowboys - Hillbillies with Guitars Spotify Link & Amazon Link to listen (no video available)
