I'm so glad there were subtitles. Even after 30 years, I still can't understand James Reyne.

Same chords, same changes, very similiar vocal melody.. GNR have some 'splainin to do. They may be in deep doo doo.

Mmmmmmmmm there is only so many chords you can play so some songs are going to sound alike just due to theory and harmony
Had a listen and it's nothing like it apart from a typical chord structure a lot of songs use

"And even though the Aussie rock veterans were by no means huge in the US, it seems a 1984 compilation album featuring Unpublished Critics was released there through GNR’s own record label, Geffen."
And GnR site australian music as an influence
“the same chugging chord progression, a similarly-sweeping lead break, the verse melody, and the elongated one-syllable vocal in the chorus.”
So there you go, but we all know GnR are to honest to do that
