Tenacious D and Nirvana

Wow. I dunno if anyone's figured this out before, but I just realized that Tenacious D's song "Kickapoo" borrows a riff from Nirvana's song "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle".

Still, the D song is better by far.

UPDATE: Wikipedia says that "[t]he song took some part of melody from famous Pinball Wizard of the Who's rock-opera album Tommy." I haven't heard the song, but that may well be the case. Regardless, if you've heard both "Kickapoo" and "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle", you can't doubt that Tenacious D borrowed Nirvana's riff.
