The band Skeezix has posted 2 original recordings on their ReverbNation.com page that were actually recorded by another band - Crash Dummy's - in the mid 1990's. One of the songs was written and copyrighted by Brian Falor and the other written and copyrighted by Matthew Faske. Neither of the songwriters is a member of the Skeezix band and the Skeezix band did not record or re-record the songs, gain permission to use them or list due credit to the songwriters. This is illegal and immoral. It is the equivalent of starting a garage band, posting a couple of Aerosmith tunes and claiming they are yours. I would like to petition this band to do the right thing and either remove the songs from their webpage or re-record them using their own band and give songwriting credit where it is due.

      Matthew Faske is my dad...I knew the lyrics to those songs when I was 5... My dad and Brian need to be awarded the credit that they deserve. I am DISGUSTED at the fact that these skeezix people are trying to say that they wrote those songs.

      I tell all the musicians I help with social media to use ReverbNation as a source to share their music. We need to give proper credit in order for the site to remain viable.

      Skeezix should be ashamed of themselves for stealing someones else's original song and remove it from their reverbnation page. They need to be held accountable for their thievery.
