Blink-182 vs. Green Day

Submitted by Adrian

I know, it’s a fairly common pop punk riff but here’s Blink-182 and Green Day. And there’s a lot of Green Day on this site.

Blink-182 - "What's My Age Again?" (1999)

    It’s a simple chord progression. Maybe you should instead compare Basket Case to Pachelbel’s Canon, whose chord progression was quite distinct.

    Yea, Pachelbel’s Canon has not just been done by Green Day but you should also check out Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton and Hook by Blues Traveler

      I think I screwed up with the links but just go to about the 50s mark on No Rain and the 1min mark on Basket Case and you’ll hear it.

    2. Mark Adams

      Yes, but Basket Case is said to be based on Pachelbel’s Canon. Anyway, Beautiful by Christina Aguilera (2002) is also similar.

        While I’m on the subject, the verse of The Voice Within (2002) sounds like a combination of From This Moment On by Shania Twain (1997) and I Know Him So Well from Chess, performed by Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson and written by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson of ABBA fame, and lyrics by Tim Rice (1984).

    Yeh I was trying to sing No Rain to my girlfriend and she kept insisting I was singing Basket Case. Hadn’t noticed the similarity until then!
