    Default Did Pennywise take from Offspring?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf0M3ddSEOc

    You all know Self-Esteem is from 1994 and Pennywise came out with the song "It's Up to You" in 2001 and the first four or five seconds sound very close to Self-Esteem.
    What do you think?

    Because I'm already sick and the color scheme must have set me off. Sorry about that.

    Then you should know that what he's saying is true. I haven't heard a single modern rock band that hasn't used that progression. Hell, the Offspring used it in all of the first four songs on RAFRAG (though they are in different keys). I can't stress how ridiculous it is to think that someone ripped the Offspring off with that. It's not even that it's simple, but it's just hella common.

    Actully It's not that ridiculous, I mean Offspring is like the most awsome band in the world (in my opinion)and I wouldn't be supprized if someone tried ripping them off.

    But...it...couldn't be ripping them off because it had been done numerous times before them. Plenty of bands have tried to rip them off, but it would have to be something more uniquely Offspring. Like that one car ad I saw that sounds exactly like Come Out and Play, or that Nazi band that has a song that sounds just like It'll Be A Long Time.
