    As if AFI, or anything other band, has a patent on whoas and ohs.
    Rise Against is my favorite band of all time (The Offspring is a close second). There's no comparison to Savior. At all. I'm sick of hearing that.
    People are just hearing what they wanna hear because of suggestions.

    Hey, Spawn is a rip-off of Spider-Man! Not really, but, if I said that, people would notice their almost-similar masks and claim that it's true. People only cry "rip-off" because some dick mentions if first and they think they hear/see something. Just no.

    Haha, what Little Miss said about them being The Offspring and Bad Religion in a blender is so true.

    TFIN sounds like the child of TKAA and Have You Ever.

    Saviour sounds like what TKAA would sound like if Bad Religion wrote it with The Offspring.

    Spawn's not a rip-off of Spidey. He *is*, however, basically Ghost Rider, Venom, and Batman mashed together in a half-assed fashion.

    And it makes sense to like Rise Against. They're not really my thing, but whatever. Just recognize that it's more along the lines of a variation of The Offspring's own sound than anything.

    People accused James Cameron of copying fucking HALO, of all things, with Avatar. It's a similar thing, just coming full circle. 'Cause, like, not like half the Halo shit didn't come from Aliens anyway. If this track has a resemblance to Rise Against, it makes sense, since Offspring are pretty obviously a big influence on those dudes.

They didn't just sing "whoas". And if just using whoas on a song could get you called out for ripping people off, everyone mentioned in this song would be totally fucked.



    I didn't say it - I agree it's true, though.
    Can you please post the song, then?

    You missed my point entirely. He's not a rip-off. Because they have barely similar masks, if someone did publicly declare him a rip-off, some cunts would agree. He is not, though. I'm talking about the power of suggestion.

    Off-topic admittedly, but seriously, Spawn's mask is the only similarity you see to other high profile comic characters?

    Spawn is basically McFarlane running with the living-suit Venom concept from his run, put into a Ghost Rider mythology. Throw in some 90s-fad anti-heroics, Punisher style, and some Batman goth-ery, you've got the Image flagship. It's the most cynically "we'll make the most badass guy eveeeerrr, dudez!" hacked-together thing the industry's seen with a major character.

    That's seriously different to an Offspring song sharing similarities with a band who...took influence from The Offspring.

    Just forget Spawn. I'm saying that, if you claim something is a rip-off of something else because of a tiny thing (or nothing at all sometimes), there will always be people who join in like idiots with cries of "rip-off" for no good reason other than they think there's a ton of similarity because someone else said so. I hope I'm clear.

    Not at all. There are plenty of cases where accusations of ripping people off are valid. This just isn't one of them.

    Could it be At A Glance? It has got some whooas in the end anyway... That's the only song I can think of that's on the Black Sails cd.
