The melody to the Offspring's song "Gone Away" is a straight rip off of Tears for Fears 1983 song "Mad World". I wonder if they knew that? I heard the Gary Jules version of Mad World at the end of Donnie Darko and actually thought that he had done a slow acoustic type cover of Gone away. I swear you can interchange lyrics. Check it out.

im checking it out....i highly doubt it lol, even if its similar, offspring would never intentionally take a melody, therefore it cant be a " rip off " , only a coincidence, theres trillions of songs in the world, i bet lots share traits, your point is invalid

.................wow he has an imagination indeed

I can't believe people actually use this board!? Wow. I didn't know the Offspring had any new material since '93. You all need to get some real fucking taste in music. Do you all visit the Creed website too? Sorry that your favorite mainstream shiteating band copied an even shittier-eating band like Tears for Fears, but what are you gonna do?

Bye-bye
