I thought I was crazy but Ryan G submitted this and confirmed my belief that Imagine Dragons’ “Demons” sounds a bit like Madonna‘s “Like a Prayer”. Maybe it’s more of the vocal cadence. Have a listen:
Imagine Dragons - "Demons" (2012)
Madonna - "Like a Prayer" (1989)

Demons reminds me of several four chord songs, such as Like Only a Woman Can by Brian McFadden, but while Like Only a Woman Can goes down an octave on the line: “She knows her man”, Demons goes up for “That’s where my demons hide”. Also the verse is reminiscent of The Scientist by Coldplay (2002).
i knew demons was a bit familar..

You’re no longer allowed to mention that website here. 😛

Is it just me or did imagine dragons rip themselves off? The beginnings of their song hopeless opus and underdog sound really similar
