I noticed this the other day but have been unabe to find anything about it on the web. The guitar from Iron Maiden's No More Lies is pretty dang close to Offsprings Amazed. At about 45sec of No More Lies it sounds the same as 17 sec into Amazed.

Anyone here know anything about this?

So like, I'll be polite, and just say no. To think a band like Iron Maiden, with a boat load of instrumental talent would copy from a pop punk band is pretty ludicrous.

I see where you're coming from, the melodies are slightly similar, but you'll find that alot of music sounds similar in one way or another, definitely not any copying going on here. I doubt any member of Iron Maiden has even heard "Amazed".

I guess Maiden had no more hope for better days.

That's a pretty ludicrous claim. Not that it's untrue, but just the claim itself.

It's not really, at all.

...If it's not untrue, then how is it ludicrous?:confused:

PS. It's not ludicrous.
