The riffs to "16" and "When I Come Around" are the same, "16" is just faster and a bit different. And "Lazy Bones" sounds a hell of alot like "Give Me Novacaine" when the guitar comes in before the singing.

The one that really annoys me: "Lazy Bones" and "99 Revolutions" have the same drum intro. The exact. Goddam. Same. You cannot tell the difference between the two until the guitar comes in.

Actually, if you listen really closely, the intro to Lazy Bones is just a hair faster and a lot less staccato than 99 Revolutions.

The most obvious examples:
 
"Deadbeat Holiday" 's verses and "American Eulogy" 's verses sound almost identical.
 
"Shoplifter" and "Dirty Rotten Bastards" have incredibly similar verses, and "Amy" 's chorus sounds just like "Shoplifter" 's (thanks to Ceadog for bringing the latter to our attention).
 
"Church on Sunday" and "The Static Age" are in the same key and have very similar-sounding portions.

WICA = G-D-E-C

 

16 = B-A-E

 

Really not the same.

Theres a little solo in Angel Blue that sounds like one they sometimes played in live versions of American Idiot.

 

The second riff in All The Time sounds like the riff in Westbound Sign.

Okay, listening to them just now, not as close as I remembered (I haven't listened to either one in ages), but they're still similar.

Stop when the red lights flash verses and Nobody cares from Homecoming are really similar. I've though that for absolute ages. There's an extra A in SWTRLF and a wee half beat extra in the strumming

I agree with all this except the last one. It is the same beat and similar as hell, but in the Lazy Bones intro Tre is doing eighth note rimclicks, while in 99 hes just doing the backbeat. just puttin my four heypennies in there.

the beginning of Sally has the same chord progression as the chorus of Fuck Time. It's E-G-A-C. It's also used in the chorus of Welcome to Paradise

Easily missed really, it does have a slightly different feel with the shift to the B chord after the C. I only noticed because I learned them on guitar on the same day!

Also in shoplifter, that one little bit sounds like another little bit from blood, sex, and booze, when he says "All the blood, sex, and booze, you give me". You probably noticed, too.

Another that is really interesting is that the guitars of almost all of the song Fashion Victim sound like the beginning of the section right after the "rock and roll" section (where it's all like "I got a rock and roll girl friend" really obnoxiously) in the song Homecoming.

That section is called "We're Coming Home Again", and yes, the first three bars of the first phrase are rhythmically similar to Fashion Victim. Two strums of a chord, then a triplet of mutes. I think it's in swing time too, but I'm not entirely sure.

This one I don't get. In Lazy Bones, Tre has a beat bu either hitting his sticks together or the rim of something on his kit, it's very distinct.

Try to put together the begging of Holiday, then Lazy Bones, then 99 Revolutions, and The Static Age.

Lazy bones and 99 sounds the same but it isn't the same
They don't match up when you mix them together

 

ever time the intro to one of them comes on shuffle, i challenge myself to guess which song it is & i'm right like 99% of the time :lol: i can't even tell the difference, if you asked me what it was i'd have no clue but i can tell them apart most of the time.

Lol yeah they are alike but they do have some differences I've never been into drumsbso I couldn't tell ya what exactly is difference

But if you took just the drums intro and load em into a music editor and let em play they don't match up except for a second in the middle (I was bored on day)

Really not the same.

The similarity I can see is the strumming pattern is pretty close, and on both riffs, when you play the E chord, you play the high notes too. Or I do anyway.
