Marilyn Manson vs. Saliva

Josey Scott of Saliva and Marilyn Manson on ThatSongSoundsLike.com

It’s not uncommon for songs to sound alike within the same genre. But the main riff on these two tracks sound totally, exactly the same. Which isn’t surprising to me, because Saliva was doing the nu-metal thing a few years too late. Marilyn Manson, however, can do whatever he wants. He’s a total badass and strong advocate for freedom of artistic expression to a mass audience, which is extremely important in America as we’re threatened by censorship every day.

ABBA vs. Shania Twain

Submitted by Travis

First off: Disco sucks. In spite of that, ABBA‘s got some pretty tight grooves. Everyone knows “Dancing Queen” and you’ve probably jammed out to it when no one was looking. Now, listen to Shania Twain’s not-so-popular track “C’est La Vie.” It’s pretty much the same thing.

The Supremes vs. The Coral

Submitted by Croco

English band The Coral released their popular track “Dreaming of You” in 2002. But some would say it closely resembles The Supremes “My World Is Empty Without You,” recorded back in 1965. Check out the clips below. Gloomy melodies, angsty lyrics, and everything you need for a great breakup song. They even have similar imagery:

“Inside this cold and empty house I dwell… My world is empty without you, babe.” (The Supremes)

“Up in my lonely room, when I’m dreaming of you… Oh what can I do? I still need you.” (The Coral)
