Well, there's been a lot of talk about how much these songs sound alike, which i agree with. So which is better?

I rekon The Kids Aren't Alright.

P.S Sorry if there has been another thread like this, i couldn't find one when i searched for it.

Same here. I wouldn't have discovered the Offspring, or punk music at all, had it not been for that song.

I like Can't Repeat because it picks my mood up but I also like TKAA because it's the original "favorite song" from The Offspring. Nowdays, though, I'd say Can't Repeat because it gives everyone an idea of how The Offspring have changed their sound since Americana.

kids... my fave song by them

Rancid_Guyxxx
07-09-2005, 09:43 AM
I think the reason why the songs sound similar is because
1. The drum beats are almost exactly the same
2. Both songs have about the same tempo
3. The chord patterns for the guitar are almost the same
4. In TKAA the chorus and the verse are the same, just the verse is palm mutted, and its the same with Can't Repeat.
5. During the verse in both songs, theres a "Whoaha" in between chords.
6. After the chorus in both songs there is similar guitar riff
7. Both choruses are very similar when it comes to vocals

TKAA, no question about it. I listened to that song like a million times every day back in `99.
I like Can't Repeat alot though.

07-14-2005, 06:23 PM
Fucking hard question, both songs kick ass!!!!!

Can't Repeat is a great song, with some of the best lyrics ever IMO, and TKAA has great lyrics too... oh well... but I choose TKAA I guess... I've always loved that song, and Can't Repeat is a new song, so maybe in a few years I won't like Can't Repeat as I do now. And, since 1998, I've always loved TKAA. So, here goes, TKAA!!!

07-14-2005, 07:06 PM
I like the solo and in intro, and the whole arrangement better in TKAA but Can't Repeat has better lyrics in my opinion.

:confused: When it come form the band called The Offspring,I love all the song including these 2,TKAA and CR...But,I preferred to TKAA with a good music setup and lyric..But,CR is also best,juz the background music almost and exactly same.Anyway,CR is juz like second TKAA i think.... :D

Can't Repeat.
yo bd007h, you list kids arent alright as the best song ever in youre sig, but cant repeat is better ay?

kids arent alright. i bet that if the same question was asked 6 months later, 80% would say TKAA. i like cant repeat, but it irritates me because its a rip of TKAA, not to mention the lyrics are terrible.

The best time to make the comparison between Can't Repeat and TKAA is, indeed, in a few months... 'cause now is natural that many people say Can't Repeat, it's still a fresh song... I like it a lot, I really do, but TKAA is mythical.

As for the Can't Repeat lyrics... I totally disagree, I think they're the best of the past few years... and even though Can't Repeat has some resemblances to TKAA, I think that saying Can't Repeat is a rip of TKAA is ridiculous

oh come on, people are comparing these two songs why? because they are so similar. its widely acknowleged that TKAA is one of there most acclaimed songs, and probably there best effort. of course theyre going to try to emulate that success for can't repeat, theres nothing wrong with that, but for me id rather the band try something new than just rehash past success. my opinion.

Vaya_con_cornholio
07-16-2005, 02:23 AM
In my opinion tkaa is better song although I listen cr oftenly. Maybe cuz it is a new song. Cant repeat is to easy. The rythm guitar always plays on the same notes that makes this song less dynamic. In tkaa there are more backvocals (verse and chorus) and i like it. There is are also solos which sounds very good. I think that vocal in both songs sound good but the lead guitar plays much better in tkaa. Lastly I want say that tkaa has a great video so 3 :1 for tkaa

TKAA for sure, SO fun to play live, Can't Repeat is an amazing song though, they're my two favs. Also, I'd like to say now that the guys pissed me off when they made the intro so tough, took me a little while to learn it

IllBeWaiting
07-17-2005, 10:14 AM
The kids arent alright is an amazing song, easily the best on americana. Its funny because before reading this thread i never thought about how similar they are, yet for yrs TKAA was one of my favs, and im not really a big fan of cant repeat.

05-08-2007, 02:30 PM
TKAA are what got me into rock music in general...

I'd only heard pretty fly before that back in the Nineties.. and like many i regarded offspring as a piss around band until an american i knew sent me TKAA and it converted me to rock music and stuff...

But now... i actually prefer Cant repeat.. but TKAA for old times sake..

Old thread, but I think TKAA is a much better song than Can't Repeat. Even before I realized they sounded similar, I disliked CR... I disliked it the first time I heard it. It just felt like it's completely uncreative. There wasn't even the slightest notion of anything new in that song.

RODNEYMULLEN
05-08-2007, 06:29 PM

Tkaa ftw. First song of theirs I had heard (or at least the first I noticed). I actually don't think its anything that great anymore having heard their other songs, but its always got a special relevance for getting me into them. Anyway, its sure as shit better than Can't Repeat, I find the name ironic in that the song is a fucking repeat of tkaa.

05-12-2007, 08:54 PM
TKAA is 50 bazillion times better than Can't Repeat. Ironically, all Can't Repeat does is repeat until the very end. The bass line is boring beyond belief.
