    On the flip side though, it pissed me off to no end on RAFRAG, with all the Green Day sounding stuff in the second half. Hypocrite is me.
    1. I'm gonna have to listen to Does This Look Infected? today. I haven't listened to it in ages, but hearing all this about Offspring influence makes me VERY curious.
    2. Of course it bothers you more when it's a band you're into! "Some band I don't care about is borrowing from other bands; whatever, I don't care. Some band I love is borrowing from other bands; wtf guys, can't you please write for yourselves??" That's how it should be. I think that's the reason people here act like the Offspring is the worst offender; people here CARE about the Offspring! We want fully original songs from them! Makes sense to me.

    I was a huge Sum 41 fan for a time, up until Chuck came out (blasphemy!), and I'm not sure about the Offspring influence - can you guys give us some song examples? - but yeah, for some reason DTLI? is my favorite album from them too, by far, and the only one I listen to nowadays. It could take some time to get into it, but I always thought it was something special and friggin' underrated.

    Wow, at first I was like "Meh, this doesn't really sound THAT much like Chop Suey. Maybe just generally like SOAD..." and then I got to the chorus. o_o
    My new album "Carnival of Monsters" is out now! Go listen to it and post in the thread!

    Microwave, dude. I'd forgotten the name of the album, but yeah, it's "Does This Look infected?" I wrongly thought it was their third, but seems it's the second one.

    The whole thing's pretty much Conspiracy-esque riffs and style. Obviously vocally it's...them, but there's a pretty big similarity. I wouldn't jump to accusations of it being intentional, especially since it came out in a similar period, but it's there.

    Not really my type of band, but that was their one disc I listened to quite a bit. The one after it, Chuck, is the same kinda thing, only it's "Sum 41 with Metallica influence".

    Kinda have no idea what they've done since then.

    Still Waiting by Sum 41...when that came out i was so sure it was a slight on "Dammit, I Changed Again" that I wrote a very English "rant" letter to Kerrang magazine.
    They printed my letter in the issue that they reviewed the Still Waiting single, and to show that they where the pinnacle of rock music reviews stated:

    "this song sounds awfully like The Offsprings "Low Self Esteem"

    I almost shredded the magazine in fury, such was the all encompassing love for the band at that point in my life.
    "Hey, I know you're upset, but if you ever mention my mother's loins or their frothiness to me again, I don't know what I'll do ... but it will be bad. Now let's go bury this dead hooker."

    Yep, it's pretty obvious and blatant. It's one of the few songs where I feel I can safely assume it was intentional.

    Can't agree more, it's such a great album with such great rip-offs. but sum41 is well known for doing that

    Wow, I listen to both of those songs quite frequently and I never even compared them before.

    It's an easy mistake to make with the whole "is it the second or third album?" thing. I often think of Half Hour of Power as their first album even though it's just a long EP. I often think of DTLI? as their third album mistakenly.

    In regards to new stuff, they released a mediocre record called "Underclass Hero" somewhere between 2008-2009 I think. Their most recent album, Screaming Bloody Murder (pretty good in my opinion), was released a little over a year ago.
