Green Day songs that sound like other songs

150 posts in this topic

Posted

What other songs have you found that have bits in them that sound a bit similar to Green Day songs? I know there is a Kinks song that sounds like Walking Contradiction, but have you found any others?

Edit: Or it can be any other pop punk song.

Yeah, "Do It Again" is the same riff as "Walking Contradiction". Another Kinks song, "Picture Book", sounds a shit ton like "Warning". "Hitchin' a Ride" sounds like "Stray Cat Strut" by the Stray Cats, except "Hitchin' a Ride" has a faster tempo. I could probably think of more if I tired...

Billie Joe strums the A in walking contradiction more times than the kinks, but other than that yeah, stray cat strut sounded pretty alike. The song "Pretty In Pink" by the Psychedelic Furs has a riff in it that sounds like a slower "Stuck with Me"

I swear to god every time I hear a Blink 182 comparison to Green Day it takes a little piece of my soul away.

I don't know if they sound alike but here is a dope mash up of two of my all time favorite bands. Green Day and Queen. And Billie definitely respects and pays homage to Freddie Mercury in many ways both live, lyrically and musically.

"I don't want to die but sometime's wish I've never been born at all" is one of the greatest lines in music history IMO. It sounds so simple but it's so very deep.

But anyway...This..

Proof positive that Novacaine and Bohemiean Rhapsody are definitely in the same vein although completely different.

I feel like I'm going for the award for obscurity here.

The Network's Right-Hand-A-Rama (at 16 seconds)...

...sounds like Formula V's Eva Maria (mostly at the beginning and at 1:22).

Sort of. I knew it reminded me of something but I just couldn't figure it out until a couple of days ago. Such a relief. And it was my favorite song when I was 5 too :P

(I can't embed. Sad.)

Oh yeah, forgot about this. It's pretty undeniable.

I knew I hated BOBD for a reason.

Oasis makes me want to punch babies.

Anyway, much like the Bohemian Novacaine above, I don't think it's as much of a perfect match as everyone makes it out to be. I think it's just makes for a good (or bad) mash-up.

As long as were posting mash ups. (This one is off key)

This one is just an Eminem accapella thrown in. Nothing amazing.

Not a direct similarity but I always thought Bad Religion's To Another Abyss had kind of the same chords like Boulevard of Broken Dreams

"Everybody's got their problems, everybody says the same thing to you"

The rhythm guitar in The Offspring's "Race Against Myself" sounds like Boulevard.

Or should I say sounds like Wonderwall.

Oh, I thought you were saying Nickelback sounded like Green Day. You're just saying that Sum 41 sounds like Nickelback, which I wouldn't know or care about.

How very special for them. :toocool:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PCnHR-tEFc

Check one of those guitars, it sounded very similar to Brain Stew's riff.

I noticed that as soon as I heard it on Infest.

Very similar. And then there's that song by that band with Chicago in the name and something about 25 that Brain Stew sounds like.

Someone knows what I'm talking about.

You're thinking of Take a Look at Yourself ;)

The whole song doesn't sound like Castaway, only the intro and some other bits.

Hey guys. So i saw the recent topic posted about Green Day songs sounding a lot like other Green Day songs, and i thought maybe i could start a topic about songs by other artists that sound like Green Day songs!

So here are the ones i figured out:

-American Eulogy sounds alot like We're Not Gonna Take it by Twisted Sisters

-See The Lights sounds like ACDC's You Shook Me All Night Long (i love that song.)

-Here's a funny one, my friend made me listen to this Pokemon Game Music, the piece is called Diamonds and Pearls, and he linked it to 21 Guns! And the thing is it actually does sound like 21 guns!

-He also linked the song to Full House' Theme Song "Everywhere You Look". To be honest i don't know about that but maybe you guys would find it similar

-I also linked 21 Guns to Mott The Hoople's All The Young Dudes, its somehow similar if you listen carefully

-There's also The Kink's Picture Book, it sounds so much like Warning!

-There's also The Beatles' Hey Jude, it sounds like When its Time

There's a bunch more but you get the point xD

So do you guys know some other songs we can share together?
