Music from Bullet the Blue Sky was lifted from Ted Nugents song Stranglehold

It really is amazing how they lifted the music from this song and used it for Bullet. I'm surprised Nugent never sued them. Just listen from the 2:30 - 5:50. That's the basis for the guitars, drums, and bass for Bullet the Blue Sky.

They credit naked funk on pop for DYFL don't they...
I've heard some people say that their copies of Pop read "inspired by Naked Funk" but others don't see that.

I am quite sure that in the credits for it in the cd inlay there is a paragraph to that effect and maybe  more...

I hear a few modern songs that rip off the opening of Streets.  The Edge called out The Tender Trap for ripping it off on their track Sweet Disposition for the 500 Days of Summer Sndtrk.
