i think the offspring are a unique sounding band, and i've never heard any other bands that sound a lot like them

ya they have their own sound, but now some bands have been influenced by that sound, like maybe sum41...but i dont really think most bands sound a lot like em. not sure, never really thought about it.

-bad religion (the faster punkrock songs of both bands sound a bit the same)
-social distortion
-tsol

but they don't sound like offspring, offspring sounds like them

I have to say that out of all my music experiances the Offspring is the only band that sounds like the Offspring. I don't know of any other bands. Well that one song of A's is sort of offspring-like. I think that song is called Starbucks.

they don't really sound like anybody else, not even the other so-cal punk bands. i think it's because of the vocals, his voice is pretty unique

Yeah, Sum 41 some times.

But it's true, there aren't many bands that sound like as far as I know.

Personally, Korn and Sum should never touch this list. But blah, can't think of any bands that are similar. The Offspring is one of kind :)

Well they may be compared to Pennywise on some lengths.

musically, they sound similar to bad religion, pennywise, and social distortion;
but it's dexter's voice that sets them apart

i noticed something weird when i heard the new U2 song "vertigo" I think the bass riff sounds a lot like special delivery. the whole song kind of matches special delivery when you really listen to it. its kind of creepy...anyone else agree?

just to clarify, i was being sarcastic in my suggestion that korn sound like offspring. korn fucking suck.

The closest sounding thing to the offspring is NOFX in my opinion. oh and Pennywise

livecby
11-30-2004, 02:43 PM
yeah i agree pennywise sounds pretty darn close in some of their songs. especially F-Authority

krois

yes, i also think pennywise is sometimes a little bit like offspring

i don't think pennywise sounds like offspring much. pennywise has really hard and fast guitar riffs that are played at lower notes than offpsring, while offspring tends to use higher notes and not playing as fast. offspring does sound like social distortion's newer stuff. though offspring does have a uniqe sound compared to other bands.

I'd have to say Social Distortion kind of sounds like The Offspring. But the Offspring were influenced by Social Distortion, so The Offspring sound kind of like Social Distortion in a way. But yeah, the Offspring are unique. Nobody sounds alot like them and they don't sound alot like other bands. The closest I think is Social Distortion. Both bands kick ass. :D
