The first riff from Stuck With Me is similar to the first riff from Welcome to Paradise.

 

I still don't get WHY people are still confused about 99 Revolutions and Lazy Bones drum intro. Here's the difference:

Lazy Bones - You hear somekind of clacking in the drum intro, like, "Ba-dum-dum clack ". And it's also slower too.

99 Revolutions - The somekind of clacking shit is gone, plus it's faster.

 

Shoplifter is a mixture of Dirty Rotten Bastards, Amy and Blood, Sex and Booze.

 

Troublemaker's guitar intro is (to me) similar to Fuck Time's intro. Troublemaker is faster than Fuck Time.

 

Makeout Party's intro backwards is similar to East Jesus Nowhere.

This might just be me, but my dad noticed something I didn't. Stop Drop and Roll!!! was playing in the car, and Dark Side of Night was on, and he pointed out a similarity in the melody to the one in East Jesus Nowhere:
"There's a rain tonight falling from the stars"

"A fire burns today of blasphemy and genocide"

 

Also, the riffs for The Pedestrian and Cigarettes & Valentines.

And the phrasing of these lines

Extraordinary Girl: "Some days he feels like dying, some days it's not worth trying, now that they both are finding"

Sweet 16: "'Cause you will always be my, well you will always be my, you will always be my sweet sixteen"

 

 

Prosthetic Head and Horseshoes and Handgrenades 

Troublemaker, too.

Letterbomb and Viva La Gloria sound a lot alike at different points throughout both songs. 

And Scattered, and Rusty James. Chord progressions are nearly identical in all four of them.

The choruses of Nuclear Family and Scattered both have a vocal break in the middle with the exact same guitar part.


 

  • I don't know what it is, but something about Fuck Time reminds me of Sally.

 

Sounds pretty personal.

One day I happened to compare a few songs Uno, Dos, and Tré with other songs by Green Day, but those old albums. Here are the similarities that I found with these songs:

 

Carpe Diem = Suffocate

Let Yourself Go = Maria

Fell For You = Pulling Teeth, Worry Rock

Troublemaker = Warning

See You Tonight = Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)

Wild One = Walking Alone, Rotting

Wow! That's Loud = Hitchin'a Ride

X-Kid = The intro is similar to the song Why Do You Want Him.

A Little Boy Named Train = Know Your Enemy

Walk Away = Hold On

Dirty Rotten Bastards = There is a part of the song similar to the song Jaded and also is similar to Platypus (I Hate You).

99 Revolutions = The final part of the song is similar to the final part of the song Chump (when this starts the song in Longview).

The Forgotten = Last Night On Earth

 

Guys, what do you think? I would like to have your opinion. Help me.

Not 2 green day songs but the solo in Tales of another Broken home always reminds me of the vocal melody of the verses in Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash

Just noticed this. Sweet 16 and Sex, Drugs and Violence both have that same quick drum hit, then launch into the song.

I actually took the time to really listen to the intros of Lazy Bones and 99 and they are different but it was impossible to tell till I consciously did it


Also Troublemaker and Alligator remind me of each other which is funny cause I hate them both.

 

 

This might just be me, but my dad noticed something I didn't. Stop Drop and Roll!!! was playing in the car, and Dark Side of Night was on, and he pointed out a similarity in the melody to the one in East Jesus Nowhere:

"A fire burns today of blasphemy and genocide"

I think that's a little nitpicky they kind of sound alike but not really

The bridge/solo in Prosthetic Head is nearly the same as the riff at the beginning of Horseshoes and Handgrenades.

To my untrained ear, part of Sassafras Roots is somewhat reminiscent of Pinhead Gunpowder's Life During Wartime. And Android from Kerplunk vaguely sounds the same as 27. I could be wrong though.

They're pretty similar, yeah. They both use a I iv V progression during the verses.

Jaded, In The End and Take Back are all quite similar.
