For all of you whiny bastards who think certain offspring songs sound alike, here's your own special thread to post your songs. Really though, who gives a damn if two offspring songs sound alike? Like I said before in another thread, the songs kick ass, leave it as that. But Hopefully making this will just clean up all the other offspring songs sound alike threads.

Anyways, if you're going to post the two songs you think that sound alike, at least contribute something to the thread and put up an mp3 of both of the songs and the parts where you think sound alike. If you don't know how, then just try to describe why it sounds the same. Please no retarded crap like "can't repeat and long way home sounds the same cause they both have that guitar thingy."

Here's mine -

Spare me the details and She's got issues.

Well heh.. they're both songs about girlfriends and the riffs at the beggining kind of sound similar.

The intro to Dirty Magic is very similar to Vultures. Also, the chorus of dirty Magic was recycled for have You ever.

A simple idea, yet very good. I was tired of replying to every topic about this. An unified thread will spare us some work.

I agree with dain84. I'd like to observe the similarity between Million Miles Away and Nitro - Youth Energy. Theis chords obviously aren't the same but they do follow the same logical sequence, as follows:

MMA: F#m A E F#m A E F#m
ooo, ooo, A million miles away, (oooh, oooh)a million miles away
A B D E F#m
I can`t stay, I can`t stay, (oooh, ooohh) a million miles away


NYE: Fm G# D# Fm G# D#
There`s no tomorroww (ooh), there`s no tomorrow(ooh), there`s
Fm G# A# C# D# Fm
no tomorrow, ooh, o-o-o-oh (o-o-o-h)

See?

Ok, Nitro has a riff...but the logical sequence of the chords is equal to MMA`s.

Way Down The Line and The Kids Aren't Alright
Genocide and Change The World
Long Way Home and Can't Repeat
Have You Ever and Dirty Magic

Those ones sounded similar to me. Some by lyrics, some by notes.

Bad Habit and Americana-

Slow Intro followed by

Shouted Lyrics (When I go driving...) (Well I'd like to tell you...)

followed by a succession of powerchords.

Eventually the music stops and Dexter shouts something (Well don't blame me) / (Stupid dumbshit goddam motherfucker).

Wow, I never realized how much Bad Habit and Americana are alike.

No one said the obvious choice, Genocide and Change the World.

Before anyone mentions them, Why don't you get a job and the Beatles 'Ob la di ob la da' sound similar, only because Dexter "borrowed" part of the rhythym.

Even though they're not offspring songs, There is a strange resemblence between Green Day's 'She's a Rebel' and Nirvana's 'Molly's Lips' and a song by rancid. Its on the Out come the wolves album, although I have no idea of the name.

We're not doing just Offspring songs? Ok then...

"She's a Rebel" by Green Day sounds like "Motivation" by Sum 41.
"Holiday" also sounds like "Hitchin' a Ride".

For some odd reason, Self Esteem reminds me of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. :eek:

Well, I've only heard Can't Repeat once, and it was a while ago. I remember it almost sounding like TKAA. I'm probably wrong. You have seen my other posts in this forum. Most of them are retarted anyway. Look at my newest thread, for example...

Is it only Offspring songs? Because I was going to say "The Answer" and "Whisper in Time" both by Bad Religion are very similar.

Without the lyrics, Come Out and Play and Pretty Fly sound alike.

If you are talking about bad religion "You"and "Big Bang" have practicaly the same start.

And Offspring song the Solo For genocide is at the end of Smash on its own and is then reused for the start of Change the world. Plus htey contantly reuse things jsut in a different key or octive or somthing. Most bands do. But can be quite suttle i dont notice it with offspring much. I hardly even noticed the Genocide Change the world thing.
