I think Sum41´s "Does This Look Infected" sounds a lot like something The Offspring would have recorded.

The Offspring sounds like Bad Religion and Social Distortion. Sum41 sounds like The Offspring.

Sum 41. The beginning of "Summer" is similar to the beginning of "Beheaded".

I say Sum 41 just because whathisface got that voice!

"Welcome To Hell" is definitely an Offspring song.
Anyways, I voted Bad Religion, because the chord progressions which BR use are almost the same as The Offspring uses. Ya know, Emi, C, G, D... :p

...and what about "Still Waiting"? Now that sounds even more like "Dammit, I Changed Again", when not judging the drumbeat.

Sum 41's album "Does this Look Infected?" was mainly inspired by the Offspring, which they have said themselves in commentary. That whole album is has all the songs you guys are saying sound just like the Offspring.

Personally though I'm not a huge fan of them after "Underclass Hero". Every song on that album sounds exactly the same. Liek the whole housr of it is just one big song with no change in tempo, or melody, and it's mostly whining about "daddy didn't love me". They just should've covered this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuTevbwE49A)

sum 41 tries something new with every album, they're each different especially the newest album, which would be ok except for the whining and love songs and overall girlness of it

does this look infected sounded the most like the offspring, definitely
half hour of power/all killer no filler sounded a bit like the offspring

anyway, sum 41 ftw, all killer no filler/half hour of power = their best albums
does this look infected = 3rd best album

I voted Sum 41, but I´m ready to explain why! :D When I was younger I new only some neo-punk bands and I meant that, that´s a real punk. :D I was a dick! But I still think that Sum 41 sounds sometimes like the Offspring. I liked them before, but then they totally screwed up with Chucka I guess?! Anyway I hate them now and never will respect them as a band again! :D Pennywise sounds awesome, but not like Offspring. They got their own style. Bad Religion the same. And Social Distortion? If I´m not wrong, their one of the reasons, why we´ve got Offspring today?! :D

How do The Offspring and Bad Religion sound like each other? They both have a different sound of their music, examples: Bad Religion's music is more hardcore and faster than The Offspring's, and The Offspring's music is more alternative rock/pop punk-ish than Bad Religion's. That's the difference between The Offspring and Bad Religion.

I think the same. Actually, my two favorite bands are Offs and Sum 41.

BTW Sum 41 said that their album Does This Look Infected is mainly influenced by The Offspring. That's why it's my favorite one.

Talking about songs, every offspring fan should listen to Still Waiting, No Reason, The Hell Song, Over My Head, The Jester, Count your Last Blessings or King of Contradiction. I'm sure you'll love them.

Other bands that sound like Offspring could be Sun Eats Hours, italians, and Millencolin's 'Home from Home' album.

I´m not really a fan of SUM41,but I admit they sound similar to The Offspring on some songs.It wouldn´t be a surprise if they were inspired by The Offspring.But Offspring´s way better than them:cool:!

Are you kidding? None of the above. No one. Hell, I wish someone did, so there'd be more music that has the power to repeatedly save my ass. But, no. No one gets me angry-and-in-touch-with-my-sense-of-humor quite like The Offspring. If I had a gun to my head and had to pick someone? Descendents, maybe? I'm thinking of The Offspring's older stuff when I say that, of course.

Bad Religion/Pennywise/Social Distortion all sound similar to the Offspring, as they all have that melodic socal punk sound.

The Offspring have been a large influence on Sum 41, hence Sum 41 in some ways sounds like the Offspring.

id say offspring fall somewhere between the pop punk of sum 41 and the more kinda aggresive sound of pennywise. they have quite a distinctive sound within the punk catergory!

Sum 41. Probably because they had a large influence by Offspring.

Listen to "Shattered Faith" by BR. That is pure Offspring inspiration.

A japanese band called Nicotine have some Offspring-ish songs. Like Perfect Crime. Worth digging.

I just found it amusing that as I re-read this post today No Reason came up on my MP3 player. Personally, I think the intro of 88 sounds a bit like Offspring. I also think The Jester sounds like My Chemical Romance. I don't know why.
