After 24 years of making great music, some songs are bound to sound similar.
This is the thread where you should post two or more Offspring songs that, either because of the lyrics, or the song itself, just sound kind of like they could be put together.
((I sincerely apologize if this has been done before, I didn't see anything like it! ><))


Smash totally sounds like Trust in You
Never Gonna Find Me totally sounds like Staring at the Sun
Dirty Magic totally sounds like Vultures
Why Don't You Get a Job? totally sounds like The Worst Hangover Ever


Post your ideas and if I think you're right, I'll put it in this post! =D

I remember back when Can't Repeat came out, someone said that it sounded like Reach for the Sky by Social Distortion. I still don't see it.

I feel that Stiff Is Messed Up is pretty much like Americana.
But the good thing about The Offspring is that they don't tend to repeat themselves like Bad Religion or Pennywise, so I think this thread will be dead soon.

I find that Bad Habit and Americana are kinda ressembling... I can't listen to one without thinking of the other.

I think Bad Habit sounds like Special Delivery and YGGFK like Kick Him When He's Down! :D

Gotta get away and A lot like me, but just for the lyrics...

Amazed and A lot like me (for the vocals)

Take it like a man and Hammerhead (for the guitar riff)

Takes me nowhere and (can't get my) head around you

Have you ever and Hammerhead (song structure, with the second half being different from the first)

Oh and a critic from montreal compared the chorus of trust in you with the chorus of All I want. (It is true that they are similar, even though the guy is a bit stupid to have compared Trust in you with All I Want, but not with Smash)

What happened to you and Don't pick it up

I don't see a similarity there, one song is about being paranoid and left alone, the other is about illness of society.

Yeah, you're right, but i don't know, I always associate those two together. Maybe because of the same rhyme (head-bed)... When I hear the songs, I have the same image, of a guy stuck in his bed because he's too depressed.

Wow, funny those are my 2 favourite songs. Never really found a comparison between the 2 sounding the same.

They use the same chords, but not the exact combination. But Reach From The Sky uses the exact same chord progression like YGGFK(Ami F C G), to mix things up :D

Oh yeah, I see it now, rhymes are similar for sure :)
