And my personal favorite:
Red Hot Chili Peppers

I'm glad we all got that out of our system. Now we can forever live in peace with this enlightening information.

We've heard about this over and over again. It's getting too repetitive. Some people have WAAYYY too much fucking time on their hands to sit and try to compare. There is a thing out there called jobs....... maybe the people that made these videos should look into getting one. :rolleyes:

Theyre both amazing bands, but im sorry, i just dont see the similarity. i hear it, but the sound is just too different. time signature, riffs, mosre of a ska sound all kinda make it no argument. the offspring arnt copying at all.


beatles kings of rock
offspring kings of punk.

period.

Those two sound nothing alike.


The Beatles:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=duyAHixppcM&feature=related

They sound similar, but I wouldn't say they ripped off that one.



Green day:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=iwug0okS0IM

I can honestly say they ripped that one off, but there was a theory that the song takes a shot at Green Day's success, and how it subsided all of a sudden. The "Rise and Fall" of American Idiot, if you will.



The Kinks:

That particular guitar riff is generic enough where there could be several of those! I hear variations of that riff in a bunch of songs. This guy's just nitpicking.


And my personal favorite:
Red Hot Chili Peppers
http://youtube.com/watch?v=V-bWqhbi4Nc


Yea...they sound similar. But just like the Beatles one, that could be just a minor coincidence.



I'm glad we all got that out of our system. Now we can forever live in peace with this enlightening information.

Anyway, just putting in my two cents! I hope this thread puts an end to the rip-off threads and maybe other complaint threads.

This thread was made to be a joke. The gust of wind was that fact blowing over everyone's heads.

I get what you were doing. I just felt like adding in a few thoughts of my own.

I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like too many people are thinking that The Offspring are ripping off other artists (in this thread) and it's really disturbing to be honest. Thought we were all here for the same reasons, not to "bash" or "putdown" (per se) The Offspring.

That was actually mostly for Sk8rocka, but whatever.


And did anybody catch on to the fact that Higher Ground was a cover to begin with?

Dur. I'm not even gonna say anything.



Red Hot Chili Peppers
http://youtube.com/watch?v=V-bWqhbi4Nc

I can kinda hear a similarity, but no shit there's gonna be a song that sounds like another song done before it. I actually made a thread about this song in 2006. I only asked "rhcp plays offspring?". It was actually the ending to Higher Ground. The video isn't available any longer.

the beatles have already done everything, everyone is just regurgitating their shit...
accept it and move on, and stop making fucking pointless topics on this bbs.

You didn't say anything new/interesting/relevant so stop fucking wasting your time.

Free?

There was somewhere an inteview where Offspring officially admitted that WDYGAJ was meant to be a parody on Beatles.

No no no guys, you got it all wrong...


...They ripped Mozart in the first place, for playing music...





Anyway, i get the joke, Thomas :D. I'm sick of everyone accusing The Offspring ripping off other bands, too.

Hah, yeah, this is insane. I know it's a "joke" thread, but I'm gonna write a few sentences here anyway:

Nirvana: Ehh, no?
The Beatles: Ehm, wasn't this kinda tribute to The Beatles?
Green Day: Ok, this may be the ONLY little "rip-off" they ever done, but it's just the feckin START that's SIMILAR.
The Kinks: Wtf? Maybe some similarities, but this is just stupid.
Red Hot Chili Peppers: That was actually very similar, but I don't know too much.

I'm sick of this bullshit that Offspring or other bands have riped off bla bla. They don't, they have their own style and music, and makes it their owns. Some similaritis, but not rip-off (except for the one little american idiot INTRO).

Thomas, I just read your first post and understood your intentions. Apparently you need to spell things out a little more clearly for those that lack the power of observation.

Same here. Don't worry Thomas, some of us got what you were doing.

Sadly, maybe you just shouldn't make posts like this? People will inevitably not get it. They'll assume you're band bashing and then start attacking you and getting defensive. And then it just gets reduced to tons of arguing.

I hope you're not talking about me, just because I wrote those few sentences? 'Caus I understand, but I just wanted to write it.

As long as you guys got it, I'm not gonna sweat it. One of them apologized anyway.
