Green Day songs that sound like other songs

150 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Oh Love sounds like The Morlocks  "Get Out Of My Life, Woman" - the guitar effect of the Buzz - The Morlocks are 80s Garage Rival band that guitar Buzz is expected.  

Stray Heart sounds like "A Town Called Malice" by The Jam and that song "Are Going to Be My Girl" - very over-used rhythmn

BOBD - the first part sounds a slowed down version of "wonderwall" at the start by Oasis

The forgetten reminds me of John Lennons Imagine - the rhymn of the paino is simular.  

The drum riffs/rthymn in Know Your Enemy is stereotype and simular to many songs another over-used rthymn - Songs like the rthymn from both Ocean Colour Scene "you've got it bad" and "Travellers Tune"  etc etc.....over-used rhythmn/Drum pattern.  

Christie Road gituar at the last part of the song sounds little like "Wild Thing" but with different chords and ever-so-slightly changed rthymn -  and a bit faster 

 

 

OOOps I did it the wrong way around.  

 

 

Also the Punk Pop/Pop Punk and boybands with gituars usually write and seem to strive to sound like Green Day.  Those copycats came after Green Day and music journalists decided it would a cool idea to put Green Day in the same Genre while they took a retrospective look at the band and their biographies.  Started in the early 2000s and it stuck to them like glue ever since and now if anyone says that they arent Pop Punk get cyber-slapped.  A majority of those bands like Good Charlotte and Sum 41 and Blink etc and including Brittish Boybands With Gutars like McFly and Busted do not seem to have an orgin or scene they have had played within.  Now if you say that Green Day are not in this catagory you get it from people - it was those music journalists who pushed them into that genre in the early Noughties and the label stuck.  Every time I point this out, I get it from people and then I get  blocked and removed.  Its true.  The journalists in the 90s labels them as "alternative" and then 2000s as "Pop PUnk" and in the 2010s full circle back to their orgins.

I've always thought "We're not gonna Take it" was very similar to "One For The Razorbacks" :)

All The Young Dudes by Mott the Hoople has a similar chorus melody to 21 Guns.

And this is clearly American Idiot:

Sex, Lies and Audiotape (Zebrahead) sounds very like East Jesus Nowhere in parts. But it's a great song anyway :P

Also so many people say the Stray Heart bassline is like Town Called Malice, which it is, but The Jam weren't the first to use it either.

She's A Rebel sounds like Boxcar by Jawbreaker, and Brain Stew is very similar to 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago. Which incidentally has the most retarded song title of all time.

Also Horseshoes and Handgrenades is just Main Offender by The Hives

Listen to Rebel Girl by Bikini Kill and it's almost the same son as Know Your Enemy. She even screams revolution in the same way

I don't see that one either. The chord progressions are completely different and the melodies aren't particularly similar. 

 

If you want a song that sounds like Hey Jude go listen to You And I by Lady Gaga :p

You sound like my grandparents trying to talk about Pokémon.

 

The games are called Diamond and Pearl and the music is Route 209.

These were both very intentional, and Sam Cooke even has a writing credit on Tré.
