A first for “Ripped Off Riffs” category: An artist is accused of ripping himself off? John Hiatt just released his brand new album Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns with a grungy new track called “Damn This Town.” With its minor chords, chopping guitar and biting lyrics it furthers Hiatt’s reputation as a down-and-dirty story-teller. Only thing is… haven’t we heard this riff before? In 1993?
