I dont know why but when I listened to "A Lot Like Me" it reminded me off the Linkin Park song "What I've Done." Did anyone else think the same thing?

I thought it was only me...:p

What matters is that it is a great song and I think you all agree me on that..

I only hear it in the last three notes of the chorus. But it's there.

Me too: I thought "This song could have been on that last LP album..." :p

It definitely sounds like something Linkin Park could have done, I thought the same thing on my first listen.

Offspring is 1000000 times better than Linkin shit. Please don't insult Dexter and the boys.

I don't hear too much similarity between the two songs,maybe the piano part.

It does remind me of What I've Done a bit... But just a bit. I can easily say that it is still played in offspring-ish style, though, apart from the piano input, which isn't bad at all. It's a great song, i liked it instantly.

WTF? How is it an insult (even though they are better). I like Linkin Park anyway.

If you listen to the two songs back to back they sound nearly nothing alike. The piano is the only similarity, and that's because it's a piano.

Although I have problems with my ear now due to middle ear inflammation,I still didn't recognize any similar notes in both song.Sorry,in my opinion it's different.

You're right, it doesn't SOUND like What I've Done, but it still REMINDS me of it. I don't know why, though, but the first time i heard it i got that strange feeling (but good feeling). It doesn't remind me of What I've Done so much now after listening A Lot Like Me quite a few times.

But they are completely different songs (rhytm and all)

Just at the very beginning it has that LP-ish vibe, but it goes away once the vocals start.

if a lot like me sounds like what iv done that means that a lot like me sounds like every linken park song ever made since they are all basically the same song written over again

He's saying every Linkin Park song is the same, so if A Lot Like Me sounds like What I've Done, it also sounds like every Linkin Park song written.

I'm not going to compare it to "What I've Done". I will only say that currently it's my least favorite song from RAFRAG. But don't lynch me for that, people! xP

That's the only similarity at all.


btw, A Lot Like Me is my favorite song on this new album, potentially in the whole world.

i agree...
the same as the beginning of Stuff is messed up sounds quite marilyn manson ish..
and the beginning of Nothingtown sounds like something andrew WK would do.
and that Rise and fall sounds very greenday.
Anyone agree?

Come on, stop talking about how similar to another bands RAFRAG sounds :mad:. In the end of XXXXX pages thread your conclusion will be that everything sounds like Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. This is not the first album with Offspring been influenced by someone else!

im not dumping on the offspring...
i love every single song on the album, they just remind me of other bands...
same as some other bands may remind me of the offspring...
its just a speculation.

Why do you always get upset when someone says "it reminds me of..."...

Even if that person says "hey, i love the song!. It sounds like (insert band name here), you blame him/her.

ps: Of course, I also hate those fuckers who don't have a life and keep doing videos suchs as "you mom ripped of my mom's hair"; and things like that.
