    Default One song sounds like Jane's Addiction, one BonJovi, one Blind Melon, one Bad Religion

    Tthere's really nothing original on the new Offspring record. One song sounds like Jane's Addiction, one Bon Jovi, one Blind Melon, one Bad Religion. They've become an unimaginative copycat band...". - Greg from Bad Religion talking about Ixnay on the Hombre

    Which songs do you think he's describing?

    Wonder which one the bon jovi one is...bon jovi and the offspring aren't very much alike. I would guess the blind melon one to be gone away maybe...

    The "whoa" in "The Meaning of Life" reminds me of the "whoa" in Bon Jovi's "You Give Love a Bad Name".
    The founder of The Offspring Wikia, and looking for someone to help out, find out why at this thread.

    Who the fuck cares? Anyone can say that any song from any band sounds like some other song from some other band and someone will agree with it. That doesn't mean it was copied or stolen or referenced so who gives a shit?

    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I remember him (Bret) saying that in an IRC chatroom in 1997... under some stupid nickname like startrooper or something...

    It's true that it's not that important, but I just find it interesting because Brett from Bad Religion is a prominent musician.

    I can't figure out what the fuck he means with the Blind Melon reference. I mean, people really only know one Blind Melon song (No Rain), and the Offspring have never done anything like that as far as style and dynamics.

    Also, I find it quite a stretch to call them an "unimaginative copycat band" after the release Ixnay of all records. The change from Smash to Ixnay was probably the most dramatic change in their entire career. It's not groundbreaking music, but "unimaginative" definitely doesn't come to mind compared to the relative monotony of their previous work.

    The Offspring are a far cry from an original band - they've never had their own style, with every album sounding very similar to another artist or other artists, and they often recycle their own songs. However, these comparisons are weird. No Offspring song has ever sounded like Bon Jovi, and I haven't listened to much Blind Melon, but I absolutely do not see that, either.

    And saying an Offspring song was ripped off from a Bad Religion song is hilarious, considering Bad Religion isn't all that original, either.

    The Bad Religion song is obviously All I Want.
