View Full Version : Similarities between songs from RAFRAG, and old Offspring songs

06-18-2008, 01:45 PM
I noticed a lot of similarities between Trust in You, and Smash (the song), at least the begining, and thought it was pretty cool. Any other songs that have uncanny similarities with older Offspring songs?

Trust in You reminds me Smash and All I Want at some point.
Takes Me Nowhere kinda reminds me Kick Him When He's Down.

You're gonna go far, kid - Self esteem, The kids aren't alright ;)

A Lot Like Me - Gone Away.

Same thing over and over with minor change, bass verses, the second guitar (the part playing the higher part of the barre chord).

Half-truism -> come out swinging
Trus in you -> All i want
Hammerhead -> the meanning of Life
A lot like me -> Vultures
Takes me nowhere -> I choose
Fix you -> Denial Revisited
Lets hear it for rock bottom -> living in chaos
rise and fall -> walla walla

You're gonna go far, kid reminds me of Kick him when he's down somehow. And Kristy reminds me of Gone Away.

Aww, does somebody dislike pop music? ;)
I do see the similarity. Plus I'm on a Nothingtown spree right now. I love the song. It brings me back to how I got into The Offspring, through the song Want You Bad.

Trust in you - start of smash
alot like me- gone away / lightning rod chorus
you gonna go far kid- hit that (because of the catchy beat)
half truism- faster version of amazed
stuff is messed up- i choose/bad habit

A Lot Like Me - Gone Away.

More like Fix You, when you consider the lyrius.

06-19-2008, 03:42 AM
Nothingtown is so similiar to want you bad

Once i got over that fact i cannot stop listneing to NOthingtown, its like, most played in my car

06-19-2008, 04:36 AM
I just noticed that many of the songs begin with word "one" or at least have it in the first sentence. That brings "Not The One" in my mind... :D

Trust in you: Splinter sounds mixed with hints of the smash sounds
Takes me Nowhere: Ignition sound with a bit of CO1 souns in the chorus.
Stuff is Messed Up: Americana

I don't think any of the songs besides Nothingtown are really that smilar to other songs they have done just similar sounds to their past sounds.

Yeah, I get a tremendous Ignition feeling out of Takes Me Nowhere.

Trust in You= Smash verses + All I Want chorus + out-of-this-world bridge

A Lot Like Me - Amazed and Gone Away feeling to it.

Stuff is Messed Up - The lalala's that that we love, and only theOffspring can up with.

Trust in You: Smash / Long Way Home
Hammerhead: I dunno sounds kinda Ignition-ish to me (the first 1/2)
Alot Like Me: Amazed
Fix You: Denial Revisited

If you sing the lyrics to A Lot Like Me to the tune of Gone Away, it fits nearly perfectly.

And it feeeeeelllss and it feeeeeellllsss like Heaven's so far awaaaayyy!

And the raaaaaaaiinn (and the raaaaaiiin) comes and the world is on my head!

And it stiiiiiings yeah it stiiiiiings how the world is so cold now that you've gone away!

Craaaaaaveee (yeah) Craaaave the sun but I can't get out of bed.

To me the whole fucking album is like a new shit. Completely different music. Great! :D Except Trust in you, that´s a classic Offy song to me! :D But there´s maybe a similiar stuff between Stuff´s and L.A.P.D?! :D And Trust in you sounds like Smash (song)

07-30-2008, 02:01 PM
The intro on Fix you, kinda reminds me of Dirty Magic. X)

07-30-2008, 02:46 PM
Everything is a rip-off.

Stop this kind of shit. Thank you.

Self-Esteem & Stuff Is Messed Up both have that la la la thing going.
