Angry Rip off of "Rhinoceros"

I don't know how many of you have heard of the band Flickerstick before, but they were on that VH1 show where the bands battled it out a couple of years ago. Anyway, this guy at work plays their cd all the time. There is a song called "Coke" (I think). At the end of it he sings "And she knows, she knows, she knows.............." over and over again. Just like in Rhinoceros. Everytime I hear it I cringe, because I know he had to have taken it from that song. Has anyone heard it?

Sorry, I just had to post again about this. Even the fuckin drums are identical, lol. I did a search and came across a post on a Biff Naked message board about this topic, and they all turned on the guy who posted. They're like "it sounds nothing like it, and even if she did take it, so what, haven't you ever heard of inspiration?"

Such bullshit, lol. Take away all that sounds like Today in that song, and all you're left is some shitty ass vocals with lines like "things like this happen to me." lol.

Not a rip off, but definate similarities...

Cemetary-Silver Chair w/ Disarm
Emotion Sickness-Silverchair w/ Tonight Tonight

Home by Econoline Crush came out in 97 I believe, it has alot in common w/ TEG!

My roommate used to listen to that flickerstick song constantly and I would always think durring the "she knows" part like "Damn, he's listening to Rhino! Sweet!" This happened about 17 times over the course of the year.

Still, its a catchy song either way. I dig that "I'd like to buy the world a coke" part. But the ending is way too Rhino for my tastes.

Maybe, since its so fucking similar, it wasn't a rip off but a homage. . .

What about Collective Soul? They'd fall into the 'repeat offender' category, I believe.

Shine = Drown

one of those songs they had around 1996 or so (Breathe, I think?) = a toned-down version of Cherub Rock

Then, right about/after the time the Pumpkins release Machina, Collective Soul releases Machine and I'll be damned if the first single "Blender" doesn't sound just like "The Imploding Voice". Seriously, what the hell?

The Verve Pipe did that song "Villians" which basically sounds like the soft Part of Starla.

The beginning of that new Chili Peppers song is most definitely Cherub Rock.

Then there is that Tori Amos song that reminds of of "Obscured".

oh yeah, that one is incredibly close to Imploding Voice. I mean, TIV is a pretty simple song, but still...

You really don't see similarities between the very beginning of the new Chili Pepper song and the beginning of Cherub Rock? I wasn't talking about the whole song--just that beginning part.

yeah. especially when you're aware that the forumula for a typical song by most bands is "verse, verse, chorus, verse, chorus chorus, slow verse, chorus, chorus" or some veriation there of. Mind you, Blink 182, SR71, Gob, Treble Charger and Sum41 are completly interchangable. Which isn't the case, usually.

Its all about the style and histrionics of any given song I suppose. While were talking of Collective Soul. There song Listen reminds me of Cherub Rock with Bury Me's second solo. Shine is very CR, Drown, and Rocket-ish. There song heavy, which came out years ago has alot in common with TEG.

That Bif Naked cover is horrid. Holy shit. She had a decent foundation to steal from, so I don't know how she managed to fuck it up so badly.

if you can download a live version of howie day's ghost. usually live he tags on a song called beams of light. i swear it is the opening today riff speed up really fast.


he is one a man show though and uses a lot of loops, so it is quite possible that this is done on purpose. my roommate denies it, but i sweat it is today.

I think he meant the kinda triplet emphasis on each chord change during the intro parts, and the arpeggiated verses. I can see similarities, I just don't think they're alike

Yeah, but lots of songs fit that description. The only reason people always bring up "Emotion Sickness" is because it uses strings.

Dead Star by Muse seems to be very Silverfuck/Jackboot "influenced".

Those silverchair songs sound nothing like them. Silverchair don't even listen to the SP.
