    What I hate is when people bash songs and say it sucks because it sounds like something else. Happend to the first song, which is now called Days Go By.

    My message was intended only to those who come here just to say negative stuff.
    My point exactly.

    Yeah, but I still notice more similarity than Savior and The Future Is Now. It has an obvious explanation, but that riff is still a nearly perfect copy of As Long As We Can

    Okay, the verses are somewhat similar, but that shit happens in songs. Not really a big deal. Nothing to get all worked up over. Hopefully we hear the whole song soon.

    this is an updated more accurate version of lyrics

    This city's made of diamond
    And tomorrow the glass will grow
    All the freedoms that divides us
    it's coming after me

    Flashback 1984
    Now who's now, knock knock, knock'n at your door
    fuck? stripes? traps? riot? DD
    They are coming after me

    Now! Life is not the same
    I'm one (maybe i admit?)
    Sparks turn into flames

    now you take what you can get
    wakes? makes? me...dead?
    The future is now, now I disappear
    Now take...
    Save me from the liars
    The future is here, this is how I disappear

    Money down the spiral
    with the lie, a better man?

    I love coming here for the whole "we love The Offspring" experience. Love these new songs coming out and everyone enjoying and getting excited and such.

    But when people come and start saying negative crap, it really puts the mood down. People start arguing and now when we listen to the new songs we'll be thinking "does this sound like that other band" ? You know what, I dare you to write a song that doesn't sound like something else.

    I love Rise Against, and if it's a bit similar, hey that's great.

    Haven't they changed just the main riff? The rest of the song stayed pretty much untouched from what I remember. Maybe people getting upset was the reason to change it. In this case I liked the change, but not because it would be less similar, I simply liked the new riff more.

    Constructive criticism is ok yes. But do comments like "oh noo, it sounds exactly like that song, why did they do it because it sucks" count as constructive criticism?

    Well, if you haven't noticed, my post wasn't meant for you.

    But Dan M., I agree with your "second" post:

    I'll be honest with you though, the first time I heard that song, I didn't notice any similarity to any other song. All that was going on in my head was "wow this is awesome, great offspring sound".

    Only later did I compare it to Times Like These, because of all the comments. And then of course after I listened to it again, it did remind me of FF.

    Funny how these things work, because I'm a huge FF fan and I play instruments and such, and to me it was just a great song.

    Sure, when criticism remains constructive, no problem, but don't come here just to ruin other peoples experience and joy you know?

    I wasn't sure, so I just wanted to point out I have no beef with you, and things are cool

    I honestly think that some of you guys (and gals) need to calm down a little bit, whether you hear the similarities to another song(s) or not.

    Those that are nitpicking for the sake of finding a reason to have their voice heard aren't really worth addressing anyways.

    Those who, like me, found an actual similarity the very first time they heard it are simply mentioning just that - a similarity. I also went on to say that I'm sure the studio version will sound great! I'm convinced of it!

    If you don't hear it - no biggie. Anybody that wants to argue with you only to convince you that they sound the same needs to find a couple of other interests.

    I don't mean to be preachy - but there is already a sense of animosity that has arisen in this thread. And that's despite the fact that everyone fucking loves the song, even though some find it lacking in originality.

    Be cool people!

    They are. Don't wanna beef with anyone.

    And I really like the first version of "Days go by". Nevermind the "Times like these"-theory. It was a great song, maybe a great bonus track. "Rise and fall" sounds like "American idiot", but The Offspring gave a shit and put it on RafRag. So, why did they changed "Days go by"?

    Whatever, I'm really looking forward to the release of the new album.
