Top Ten Bands Whose Songs All Sound the SameThese bands... Just try something different for a change.
The Top Ten
Well, I like AC/DC, but I have to agree that they sound very similar and sounds like they are parodying themselves. There are prime examples of this: "TNT", "Jailbreak", and "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"; "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pullution"; and everything with the 12 bar blues riff to name a few. They use the minor pentatonic scale and power chords for all of their songs and write about the same stuff. Like I said, I like AC/DC, they just sound the same.
High way to hell, shook me all night long and play ball sound exactly the same to each other
Yeah a lot of their songs doing the same. But that doesn't mean that the songs aren't good
As much as this band is one of my favorites. I still think they're repetitive.
Nothing more repetitive, its objectivity fact.
Make this number 1! I've heard different songs from AC⚡DC
One Of The Most Repitative Bands Ever.
How to make a successful Nickelback song
1. Write lyrics about getting drunk, stoned, having sex and or a breakup
2. Write a cliché as hell chorus
3. Write a boring verse or two
4. Have generic Guitar riffs
5. Sing like a drunk robot
6. Make a cringe inducing Music video
7. Watch the money& hate pour in at once
I like some of Disturbed’s songs, but their songs sound WAY too much the same, like, how can you not say that both Down with the Sickness and Ten Thousand Fists has very similar sounding riffs?
I love me some Disturbed but the vocal riffs in more than a few songs sound a tad too similar to one another.
I don't understand how this band gets all the love they get. Every song is generic hard rock at it's most boring. And It's hard to distinguish one song from another. Do us a favor BB...change it up a bit
It's untrue. The last two albums sound different from the others , and their tracks are different even in the previous works
Yeah honestly... I like Breaking Benjamin, too, but they haven't really changed their sound at all.
I love them so much, but their songs really do all sound similiar. Blow me away, I will not bow, so cold, had enough etc. All sound pretty similiar.
The same? No, each song is unique. Maybe with the exception of a few songs from "golden cobra".
Eh. As a fan, I kinda agree but there are a few songs that sound different than most of their songs.
Edit: Actually not that repetitive at all
Every single imagine dragons song follows the exact same structure.
Quiet, boring and repetetive verse -> Loud, overdone, overcomplicated boomy chorus
They make the same song over and over again
Like them but are very repetitive
All of them are basically growling, generic fast riffs, fast drumming, and similar lyrics. There isn't a single song that sounds very diverse for this band. Not saying it out of hate, but as facts
Your right, but its not like its any use, I mean you can't even kind of make out the lyrics. the music itself is basically just blast beats on the drums and sweep picking on the guitar for five minutes and finally its over.
This is the dick measuring contest of metal
It still sounds really good though not gonna lie to yall
"something heart something hand something love something she" *guitar gets quiet* *SUDDEN BANJO*
I love this band, but you have to admit that their style, at least in their original albums, is very predictable and to-the-point. RatM have such a recognizable style because most of their songs share so many of the same features, formulas, themes, etc. I think of it like a lifetime supply of chocolate. It's hella good, but you know what you're gonna expect.
This is coming from someone who hasn't listened to Renegades yet, by the way.
They're great but their songs sound pretty similar, since their themes and feeling are similar.
It sounds different but it's the same basic concept. I wouldn't vote.
Okay who ever put this on here line up for your ass whooping. RIP Lemmy. They don't deserve to be on this list. Just listen to all there albums dammit!
I really only thought they only had one song...
Actually LP experimented with a lot of genres including Nu Metal, Alt Metal, Alt Rock, Rap Rock, Electronic Rock & even Pop Rock on their final albums for which they started getting the bad reputation of selling out. Them being placed higher on this list is kinda ironic since the only reason they started experimenting is because critics started accused them of being monotonous & samey. Seems like some people just keep searching for reasons to hate a band/artist they dislike
The voters probably mean songs within one album sounding too similar. I can hardly tell apart Figure.09 from Lying from You
People, please stop fanboying. Several of LP's songs sound the same and have the same build up. (Rapped verse, sung chorus, rapped verse, sung chorus, bridge, chorus). And most of their repetitiveness comes through in their LATER stuff. Take What I've Done and New Divide for example. Sung in a very similar way, and with similar stuff. So overall, please stop saying LP's songs don't sound the same. You're just making the band look even more overrated than they already are.
I don't like this band, but they drastically changed their style over time so it doesn't really deserve to be on this list.
A Thousand Suns and Minutes To Midnight sound different than Meteora and Hybrid Theory though.
I used to think Slayer songs sound the same but after listening to a lot of thrash metal (long ago) I realised that in fact they have tried out various styles of extreme thrash. I'm not a Slayer fan by any means, but the reason people think their songs all sound the same is either that they aren't used to extreme metal, or that they compare them to the other three of the big four who have jumped on any trend in the 1990s.
Show No Mercy has an NWOBHM vibe but faster, I wouldn't even consider it thrash metal rather than speed metal. Hell Awaits is significantly heavier, has more complexly structured song (possibly the peak of the band's songwriting), the vocals are also less clean and the 1980s sounding reverbed production of the debut is gone. Reign in Blood can be described as Hell Awaits without any complexity and system, I honestly believe it has hardly anything to show apart from its heaviness. South of Heaven almost never leaves mid-pace territory and has some almost clean ...more
Their songs sound very similar in the sense of a punk band, just a lot of raw, thrashtastic energy
Almost 65% of their songs have the same drum beats and same vocal speed.
The guitar are just 000000000000 [insert random power chord] 00000000 [insert another random power chord]
And the drums are always the same cliche skank rhythm which gets old real soon
100% agree with this, all the songs from this horrible excuse for a 'Metal' band are monotonous and sleep inducing, same over bloated, directionless and dull composition in almost every song since Anaemia. No, they're not creative nor they're the Pink Floyd of Metal, it's an insult to Pink Floyd to be associated with a garbage band like Tool, as their names suggest their fanbase comprises Tools.
If someone says EVERY Tool song sounds the same, and connects it with a Perfect Circle saying that their music sounds like Tool, is either uneducated or is deaf.
All their popular songs - or nearly all of them - are in D minor and have the exact same chord progression. Really unoriginal band.
This is a joke right? They have a distinctive sound, sure. But each song is very unique and each album is a totally new journey.
All of their songs arw generic and sound the same they are a trashy boy band and suck @$$
Their lyrics are all just random sentences that sound epic and fantastical, but has no real meaning. They sound the same in pretty much all of their songs
ZP Theart was the better lead singer. All the songs are the same "blah blah blood hope glory blah blah fire fury something something" to be true
"Facepalms hard" Next thing you know, Pink Floyd is gonna be added on here.
I agree somewhat, not ALL of their songs sound alike, but a lot of them have a depressing yet beautiful theme. They are not bad at all.
Even though Evanescence is one of my favorite bands and always will be, their songs are a bit repetitive per album.
I sadly have to vote for Evanescence. Their music is good, but just all sound depressing.
Its all the same. No more no less
A lot of Nirvana songs have gibberish lyrics followed by a occasional grunt or scream. And with average guitar playing, decent singing but yeah definitely sounds the same to me.
I found this list while searching to see if anybody else thought they all sounded the same lol.
Nirvana the same? That's stupid
Sort of. Pretty much all on Parachute sounds the same. Pretty much all on Ghost Stories sound the same (with a TKOL esque). Pretty much all of their latest stuff sound the same, but less or more it is easy to know which album and such from which.
Each album is different but the songs are similar within the albums.
Only a couple of songs but not all of them. viva la vida and humn of the weekend sounds differnt
All time low is awesome
They seem to have similar sounding songs on an album but eac album sounds different. Their newer ones have more of a twist with different sounding songs.
Kind of the same problem as AC/DC. Same formula, same chemistry, distinctive vocal work. Know 4 songs, know them all.
True, but they're still one of the best punk rock bands
Listen to the start of Blitzkrieg Bop then listen to the start of Sheena is a punk rocker and you'll see
