Top 10 Songs that Could Be on Albums by Other Music Artists

Cover versions don't count.

I am not talking about ripoffs but some songs remind me of some other music artists - either the style or genre, or something specific, such as vocal style, guitar sound, etc.
It's when only die hard fans (who know many details) would understand that this is a different band.

This list is about songs where you may understand that it's a different band but nevertheless you can't deny there are similarities without being ripoffs.

This list does not imply criticism.

The Top Ten

1 Arise - Sepultura

On a Slayer album - Metal_Treasure

2 Long Stick Goes Boom - Krokus

Yep, and should be placed next to You Shook Me All Nigh Long - Metal_Treasure

ACDC album - christangrant

3 Plush - Stone Temple Pilots

Pearl Jam Album - christangrant

4 The Lumberjack - Jackyl

On an ACDC album - Metal_Treasure

5 Nailed to the Wheel - Edguy

This could be on an Iron Maiden album. It doesn't remind me of any particular Iron Maiden song but its overall style and vocals are so Iron Maiden-ish (to me). - Metal_Treasure

6 Mother - Danzig

This song is way too heavy to on a Doors album. If anything the earliest I could see this being made is the early 80's maybe late 70's. - Rambles

On an album by the Doors - Metal_Treasure

7 The Nile Song - Pink Floyd

On a Nirvana album, mostly for the vocals. - Metal_Treasure

8 Amaranth - Nightwish

On a Beyond the Black album.

Nightwish usually is not that poppy, they're more epic and symphonic. Also Anette Olzen's voice is similar to Jennifer Haben's. - Martin_Canine

9 Deepthroat - Cupcakke

On a Linkin Park album - Ub8

10 2b a Master - Pokemon

On a Michael Jackson album (this guy's voice and singing style in the verses). - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 No Friend - Paramore

12 Alive and on Fire - Primal Fear

Could be on a Judas Priest album and only die hard Judas Priest fans would notice that this isn't Judas Priest. - Metal_Treasure

A lot songs could be on a reunion era Judas Priest album. - Rambles

13 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath

On a Rainbow album - Metal_Treasure

14 Back Round - Wolfmother

On a Led Zeppelin album - Metal_Treasure

15 Bad Girls Club - Jeanette

On an Avril Lavigne album. - Martin_Canine

16 Misty Mountain Hop - Led Zeppelin

Beatles Album mainly for the vocals - christangrant
