We did this thoroughly on the old forum thus it is down the memory hole.  However, I'll start by listing "Makes Me Wanna Sing" as a doppleganger for "Running Wild" by the Priest.

Foreigner has more than one song intro riffing that reminds me of another band

For example
Hot Blooded https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5c1m2BAg2Sc
reminds me of
DP's My Woman From Tokyo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-ScDz4Vj98

Alice Cooper feels strongly that this 1998 KISS song borrowed too much from his 1971 song.

A song called Enslaver of Lies by a band called Sadist from the album called Above the Light at around the 3:12 mark the riff is a little similar to Flashpoint by whitecross. Well sorta

Nile literally stole a Candlemass riff.

Alice Cooper and Judas Priest should have filed copyright claims against Kiss and Stryper, respectively. Good grief. Especially the Stryper tune - I had no idea they'd ripped that riff off Priest so blatantly.
