Once again, they have been busted for stealing from other bands, and this time its ABBA!

I have just had it pointed out to me (by none other than our very own Disclaimer_07) that You're Gonna Go Far, Kid sounds remarkably similar to Dancing Queen.

Seriously, from "Steal the way" to "You're gonna go far kid". It was too funny to not post it here. It really does make me think of Dancing Queen now.

Dammit! Now I've got ABBA in my head...

No one would think about it, until someone makes the connection for them. Doesn't it remind you of it now?

I always knew that the guitar riff from "and now you steal the way" to "you're gonna go far, kid" reminded me of something. But it was only yesterday that I discovered it was Dancing Queen! Haha. I still wanna laugh when I think of it.

This may have already been pointed out before, but since we are on the topic, Why Don't You Get A Job sounds nearly identical to Obladi by the Beetles. If I remember correctly, one of the band members claimed this was intentional. Anyways, see for yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44m-8RHM2t0

I think it's closer to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaNfQCqclW4 (starting from 0:42) than to Abba. I'm quite surprised about how many of you didn't know that song.

I dont see the connection.
i havent rocked out / jammed to Dancing Queen in a while though.

I only realised like 6 months ago Twinkle Twinkle Little Star has the same tune as the ABC.

The next thing we'll hear is that The Offspring has ripped off just about every artist out there with every single one of their songs that they wrote. It gets tedious after a while........... and really quite sickening and boring to hear the same shit over and over again by people. :mad:

I used to know a song from Green Day I used to think of I Want You Bad when I listened to it but I can't remember what was the song :D Seriously, I don't care, songs tend to sound like others quite often, it happens, since there are not that many chords.

Joke or no joke. I personally don't think it's funny. I have the biggest sense of humour that you'll ever 'meet' but like I said, it gets tiresome really damn fast.

Aha aha! I didn't feel like I've lost any respect towards the band when I noticed those similarities/influences. But it's pretty silly to deny them, when someone will put "Steal away" riff from Muse's "Time is Running Out" and then YGGFK, it'll be lame to say that you see nothing similar at all, or not to say anything instead of admitting that Offspring's music always been influenced by other bands. Like those other bands were influenced by other other bands (Muse and Radiohead) :).
