anyone else think they sound the same? maybe this has been pointed out long ago or its just me but thought i would put it out there. i noticed when i was singing the lyrics of "what happened to you" in my head and i accidently sang it to the rythem of "dont pick it up"

Yeah, this has been covered plenty in the past.

Essentially the two songs have a very similar chord progression. They are also both picked in the ska fashion, so they have a similar 'feel' to them.

theres been quite a few threads about similar songs although id never thought about those two songs until now! as long as they work thats all that matters!

Kick Him When He's Down is also 'skaish'.

I beg your pardon, what is "ska-ish" about that song?

Alright,it is bi-skaish.
