    What I like about the offspring is how awesome their guitars and vocals always sound. Their sound is so distinct, that even if they cover a song, you know it's the offspring.

    Who cares if something they play sound like something someone else played? It's still the Offspring.

    I actually think the bass solo leading into the guitars at the end of the song sounds like the Kinks, "All Day and All of the Night" - which is actually very cool. There is nothing wrong with having influencing sounds, especially from other great bands.

    But yeah, there are a few songs they have that are reminiscent of earlier stuff. I'mpretty sure they do this on purpose, since it's very distinctive.

    Smash/Trust in You
    Genocide/Change the World
    Dirty Magic/Have You
    The Kids Aren't Alright/Can't Repeat

    Am I missing any?

The song is totally awesome and that's it. Besides, I don't like that Nirvana song at all.
    I was going to say the same thing, It's so true.

    It's not just the riff that makes a song either, Just because it's the same rhythm doesn't mean it's alike at all. The drums, Bass, lyrics, Vocals, other effects or instruments; they all come into play to make the song very, very individual.

    Nah, Bach and Mozart weren't even the pioneers! There were much better composers before them! Bach sucked, anyway!
    But seriously, in the realm of such simplistic music (structurally), the stuff bands like Offspring, Nirvana, MCR, and Sum 41 write has SO LITTLE to work with that things will always sound similar to something else.

    In closing, the lyrics to a German pop-punk band, Wizo, come to mind.

    Hello, do you remember me? I'm a song that you maybe
    already heard from anybody else

    They took some other melody But it's still what it used to be
    Those same old boring three chords and a stupid melody

    There comes a middle part, this part will break my heart
    'cause I know that it used to be played so much better
    than they play it right now

    Hello, do you remember me? I'm a song that used to be
    already played by anybody else

    They changed some of the melody, but it's still
    what it's always been
    The same old boring three chords and a stupid melody

    There comes the middle part this part's gonna break my heart
    'cause I know that it used to be played so much better
    than they play it right now

    Hello, do you remember me? I'm a song you definitely heard
    already a hundred times before

    They stole some other melody but it's still what it used to be
    Those same old boring three chords and a stupid melody

    There comes a middle part (again) this time it makes me fart
    'cause I know that another band would play it so much better
    than they play it right now
