Top Ten Bands Whose Songs All Sound the SameThese bands... Just try something different for a change.
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.
Pretty much the first band that comes to mind. Aside from their best songs like Back in Black, Thunderstruck and Highway to Hell, once you've listened to these, you've listened to them all. Their sound barely ever changed. They have some hidden gems hidden in their albums though.
I wouldn't say all of their songs are similar, they just follow the same formula in almost every song.
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
Sad excuse of a rock band. They should be labeled as a Pop band.
Nothing more repetitive, its objectivity fact.

With Breaking Benjamin I already know what to expect with their songs.
1. Generic Guitar riff
2. Average but not special singing
3. Boring drums
4. Average lyrics
5. Repetitive bass
6. Mediocre sound in the process
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
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
Same body, different dressing.
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.
Disturbed hasn't changed much over the years, in any aspect, but their songs usually sound different.
The band is set together between Maynard James Keenan (Vocals), Danny Carey (Drums), Adam Jones (Guitar) and since 1995 Justin Chancellor (Bass).
The band is known for their influences from electronic sounds and their overly complex and strangely structured songs.
They released their debut album... read more
Lateralus sounds the same as Aenema. Schism sounds the same as Vicarious. I get tired listening to them. I honestly tried liking their music but they lack creativity. I'm not even sure they should be labeled as progressive unlike bands like Dream Theater, Circus Maximus, Trivium, Coheed and Symphony X.
Terrible excuse for a metal band! Toolheads have the audacity to compare their beloved, unimaginative, soulless band with Pink Floyd - truly an abominable attitude! All of their songs uses the same formula of endless repetition of recycled riffs and grating sounds of pots and pans accompained by random robotic noises in the background. Their music is like an overbloated bag of unhealthy chips - zero substance! Overstretching 3 minute songs by stuffing useless and boring fillers to create illusion of musical progression.
Least diverse band ever. The bass lines which are prominent with their music is extremely repetitive. Also Meynard's vocals always start sloppy and boring then shouts at chorus. Always the same boring formula.
The same? No, each song is unique. Maybe with the exception of a few songs from "golden cobra".
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.
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
I think Dying Fetus almost fits this more; though I love both bands
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.
How many times do they have to mention the word "heart"?
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
Almost 65% of their songs have the same drum beats and same vocal speed.
Not sure if the person who put this on here is deaf or trolling. If anything, they're one of the most versatile music artists of all time. A Rush Of Blood To The Head and Music Of The Spheres sound like they were created by two completely different bands.
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.
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
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 really only thought they only had one song...
I love Dragonforce and they're cool but yeah, there's always this Nintendo computer sounding guitar sections on their music.
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
The band was comprised of Kurt Cobain (Vocals, Guitar), Dave Grohl (Drums) and Krist Novoselic (Bass).
Nirvana is most well-known for their... read more
Their music isn't really repetitive. All Apologies doesn't sound like Teen Spirit or The man who sold the world. They don't deserve on this list.
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.
Are you serious? I'm not even a Nirvana fan, but there's absolutely no way that they belong on this list. At least they have a bit of variety.
Kind of the same problem as AC/DC. Same formula, same chemistry, distinctive vocal work. Know 4 songs, know them all.
Are you kidding me? The Beatles is like the most diverse musical act of all time. Even their ballads sound very different. For example Love me do and I want to hold your hand to Yesterday to Penny lane to in my life. Whoever listed The Beatles here don't know anything about music.
No. Their style was constantly changing. Heck, the White Album itself is a myriad of styles.
Yes because Helter Skelter and Let It Be sounds the same.
"Facepalms hard" Next thing you know, Pink Floyd is gonna be added on here.
All I hear from these softies are auto tunes. That's right, all their music have auto tunes. But wait, where are the rappers? Definitely they all sound the same.
I love them so much!
I think I've heard a few songs here and there but I can't even remember anything about them
Like I said this band is a wannabe Three Days Grace. At least Three Days Grace actually starts their songs off with normal singing before the screaming parts happen. But with Bring Me The Horizon not so much, they scream as soon as a song starts, and unlike TDG don't have a good guitar player, drummer, bass player or singer. Overall a very terrible band of the 2000's that doesn't put any EFFORT into their music.
