Green Day vs. Full House

This one comes from Elliot

Another one for Green Day’s “21 Guns“. This time it’s the theme to the 80’s sitcom Full House. I love the television theme song comparisons.

    Hey man, when you’re as big as Green Day, you’ll play anything to make a hit. Next up: A GD track about our occupation of Afghanistan that sounds suspiciously like the ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ theme.

    Also, the chorus has the exact same tune as the chorus of “All the Young Dudes” by David Bowie and Mott the Hoople.

      Hi Carina, Thanks for the comment. I usually try to get the most accurate/correct music clips but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.

        If you’d like more crazy comparisons, check out Maria from West Side Story vs The Simpsons Theme and Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons vs Humphrey Bear Theme Song.

        My mother recons it also sounds like Kids in America by Kim Wilde (1981). It could also be based on their own At the Library (1990) and there is also a similarity with Warning (2000), the chorus of Jesus of Suburbia II. City of the Damned, which is the part which sounds like Summer of ’69 and maybe even She’s a Rebel, but it could be a deliberate reference to Kids in America.

    Another television theme song that turns up is the sample of the I Dream of Jeannie theme in Will Smith aka The Fresh Prince’s Girl’s Ain’t Nothing but Trouble.

    The verse of 21 Guns also sounds like the part of Merry Christmas Everyone that goes “We’re gonna have a party tonight.”
