The Kids Aren't Alright's chord progression is Bb->F#->C#->G#.
Reach for the Sky by Social Distortion is the exact same, and the pre-chorus riff in Reach for the sky is the same is the outro riff in The Kids Aren't Alright, just an octave lower.
Also, Can't Repeat is very similar lyrically to Reach for the Sky.

What do you guys think?

Maybe so.

They used to love Social Distortion - thats what inspired them to form a band, so I guess its bound to be similar.

this is strange because lately ive been hooked on the kids arent alright, cant repeat, and reach for the sky...

It's been brought up before. A lot.

I think a lot was resting on Can't Repeat to be popular with the fans. TKAA rips up most 'best song' polls so it's no crime that they made it similar.

Hmm, I never thought of Can't Repeat being similar to Reach For The Sky, but I guess it is. I did notice that it was similar to TKAA, but that seems to be their most popular song, so I guess that makes sense.
