The Beatles vs. The Offspring

Submitted by Emily and Griff in Oakton, VA The chorus of The Offspring's 1998 track sounds just like The Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da". Check it out!

    Offspring main tune of the song is heavily inspired by The Beatles’ song “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”.

    I’d say this sounds more like Simon & Garfunkel’s “Cecelia”.
