I bet it's just a coincident, but the start of You're Gonna Go Far, Kid and the start of P!ATD's "Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off" sounds very much alike! Don't you think?

Also a bit of P!ATD's lyric from that song is this:

"Let's get these teen hearts beating. Faster, faster
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?

Dance to this beat
Dance to this beat
Dance to this beat "

Very similar to
"Dance Fucker Dance
He never had a chance
He never really knew
It was really only you"

Coincidents I'd say, but what do you think?

I know that song and I see no similarity. And there was not a new similarity thread lately.. I was starting to get scared there will not be another one:D

Not similar at all. If i read another comparison thread on this site, i'm going to jab a pencil in my eye.

i think THE START of both songs are similar, not the whole thing

The thing what came to my mind when I first heard "Youre Gonna Go Far, Kid", was "Reach For The Sky" by Social D.
But this chord progression "Ami F C G" has been almost everywhere. Every good punk band has at least one song with that progression :rolleyes:

I started the song on youtube, and it immediatly sounded familiar.
Log on on here, and find P!ATD, and indeed that's it. :')
But actually the rest of the song sounds nothing like it, just those parts of the verses. xD And that lyrics thing really makes no sence, so it sounds like "Fall OUt Boy - Dance, Dance" too? That's even more plagiarism, because Dexter says Dance 2 times, and FOB has it in the name twice! ;O

Offspring hasn't ripped anyone off. People need to shut the fuck up. Especially if the album isn't out yet.

Panic at the disco? are you kidding me?

both songs have the word 'dance' in it and thats about it. jesus christ lol.

Mods should lock these threads the moment they're made.

Stop tearing apart the songs and let them be what they are.

Guys, I heard this song on the radio and I think the Offspring ripped it off! It had guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, and there was a melody! :confused:

I had a listen to both, and I can see where he's coming from. It's definitely just a coincidence, but the melody of the opening verse is quite similar. Panic! seem to try and fit too many words to the melody however.

Panic! At The Disco basically stole the title of the song from the movie 'Closer'.

Not that I care either way, just saying.

hmmm honestly the intro vocals does sound kinda similar, and then the slow part DOES kind of sound like time is running our by the muse... but only like the first parts then dexter goes off into different stuff....

doesnt matter tho its not flat out the same, plus the other 2 parts of the songs (faster parts) are pure offspring. But i do see your point.

Get this guys, I heard the song Total Immortal by the Offspring the other day. They totally ripped off a fire inside.

ok, that was the most "fun" ive read on here for 7 years

So the common word "dance" makes them similiar? Ok :D

When I first saw the lyrics of You're Gonna Go Far Kid (I hadn't listened to the song yet) I was thinking about a Finnish band called Anal Thunder which sings "Dance motherfucker dance dance...", and that song even is kinda poppy/dancy as we were first told about YGGFK But in the end, there is nothing similiar with these songs, just a few words

I know that Panic At The Disco song really well but You're Gonna Go Far Kid didn't sound similar to it to me.

Clearly you haven't heard of the concept of a "cover"

allow me to explain. it's where one band plays another bands song.....so no shit that it sounded ripped of AFI coz ITS THEIR SONG JUST OFFSPRING PLAYIN IT!!!!

wot a douchebag!

I'm ususally all about calling shenanigans on these "similarity/rip off" threads. Most of the time it's total bull. But I will admit that when I first heard the verse to the song, I thought the vocal melody was similar to that of the panic at the disco song. Although I don't own any PATD songs, so I was purely working off of my memory of what I'd heard on the radio. Apparently everyone else is saying they aren't similar at all, so I'm going to assume that my memory deceived me.

If you hadn't noticed they've dun loads of covers...its not 'ripping off' someone else's song...the whole point is is that its the same song just plpayed by a different band

douchebag

Wait, like the 'hey joe' and 'i wanna be sedated' ripoffs?

I can't believe the offspring would make such blatantly copied songs.

By the way, I don't appreciate your sarcasm : /.

I think the first one who ever says the Offspring rips off music or otherwise should be banned and should receive capital punishment.

Or get banned, either way you guys should shut the fuck up.

Kay, thanks, bye.
