Rock Howard's theme music observation...
Chiba3010
This might've been pointed out before but I just noticed that a portion of Rock Howard's theme from Garou MOTW sounds an awful lot like the song "Children" by Robert Miles. Probably not a coincidence, particularly given that Rock is Geese's biological "child" and Terry's "foster child".

That Robert Miles song was quite a hit in Switzerland during the 90's, so I was quite surprised when I heard that Rock Howard tune for the first time. I wonder if SNK ever got legally approached concerning this vague case of plagiarism...?

Another copycat case I'm aware of is definitely King of Fighters '94s Jungle Bouncer:

Wow, didn't realize how blatantly SNK copied that Faith No More song! I'd guess no legal contention arose because, at that point in time, the gaming industry wasn't as lucrative as it is today, (with current big-name production budgets rivaling that of Hollywood films). Even if these snippets of plagiarism were brought to the attention of the original artists, back in the 90s they might not have seemed worth pursuing from a financial standpoint. Additionally, these examples of content-copying probably fall into a "grey area" of sorts since it's only portions of songwritings being borrowed, rather than directly sampled, and inserted into different compositions.

It's interesting. Clearly the SNK developers of old were music fans as you can find so many band names featured in the backgrounds of their games; Bauhaus, Joy Division... I know there are more examples but I can't remember them right now off the top of my head.

Yeah, it was pretty obvious when I first played the game. I think there was a thread created who people identified video game music that was ripped off form other artists. That was a pretty interesting thread.
