    “Sweet home Alabama” has a few sound-a-likes, most notably “Werewolves of London” by Warren Zevon, which in turn is ripped off by Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” which ironically quotes “Sweet Home Alabama” in the lyrics.

    Joe – on the money! Why waste precious storage and carbon credits to compare two simplistic rock turds like these.

    I do agree with Lisa, and must inform señor Doug: irony has nothing to do with Kid Rock’s lack of invention. Most of the song is sung on two notes.

    More curious, Sweet Home Alabama was a three chord reply to Neil Young’s Southern Man, a real song with melody, harmonic structure and chord changes and mostly – FEELING!

    Have a listen to the chorus of “Steve McQueen” by Sheryl Crow – even the “Wooh Wooh” bits are there…
