Tobin submitted Finger Eleven‘s 2007 track “Paralyzer” vs. Skid Row’s 1988 “Youth Gone Wild”. As soon as I heard “Paralyzer” I thought of Franz Ferdinand‘s 2004 hit “Take Me Out”. Although I’m not totally convinced of the third Skid Row similarity I thought I would post it anyway cause this track is such a classic.

I was trying to find a song that sounded like Take Me Out, but was newer and had a female vocalist. It turns out it was Shut Up And Let Me Go by the Ting Tangs. I don’t listen to the radio, so I don’t know how stupidly obvious this was.
Thanks for the comment Stuart. Yes! I’ve been meaning to add the Ting Tings track for quite a while!
You can also ad P!nk’s Funhouse to the list.
I saw Finger Eleven a few summers ago live and during Paralyzer they cut into Take Me Out for a bit
Almost sounds like Scissor Sisters “Take your Mama” too
The finger eleven song was bugging me since it came out trying to figure out who they were “ripping off”. So I searched a bunch of sites and they said franz ferdinand, Led zeppelin’s trampled underfoot and others, but those were not it, but as soon as I heard skid row’s song I thought finally “that’s it”.
The first song that came to mind was Youth Gone Wild when I heard Paralyzer. The front man for my fave cover band actually said they would never do Paralyzer b/c they ripped of Franz.
For me it has always been Franz Ferdinand – “Take Me Out” vs Ringo Starr – “Back Off Boogaloo” (1972)
how about The Used “taste of ink” and MAYBE pink floyd “another brick in the wall part 2”
Hey Travis, which part in Floyd are you referring to?
ok i was off base with floyd
but this one i think is accurate to at least franz
I think you’re right about the Floyd part, it’s just the one part from “Money”
These also sounds like Hallowed Be Thy Name (1982) by Iron Maiden, especially the Finger Eleven one
