The Ramones (sorry, they do.)

Most rap/hip-hop made in the last few years sounds like one long endless drone.

Most country music made in the last decade sounds like one of four songs: the fast dance number, the ballad, the novelty song, and the song sung by some chick. They're all completely interchangible.

Rage Against the Machine. The new audioslave album, the music is just your typical rage, paint-by-numbers style. Insert Tom's crazy, whacky solo with a drill bit, insert Crommerfield's bass lines that exactly follow the drummer. It's just the lyrics are different. What's funny is the only Rage album that's good, like an actual progression in music, was their album of covers, Renegade (which is their best album, bar none).

I maintain that there was only ONE REGGAE SONG ever written.

Talk about mind-numbing repetition.

Ugh.

Your favorite band.

All their songs sound the same, and they all suck.

Not that there is anything wrong with any of these groups, I just think all their stuff sounds the same.

Don't be. I love the Ramones, but all their songs DO sound the same. The same can be said of a lot of punk.

To me all of Green Day's songs sound the same. As do all of Dave Matthews Band's songs.

As much as I like New Order, most of their songs all sound the same.

My list, whether I like them or not:
Iggy Pop (mostly)
Alanis Morrissette
Enya
Loreena McKennitt
Sarah McLachlan
Sting (by himself)
The Cars
Sisters of Mercy (insert goth band with deep voiced leading dude
here, actually)
Erasure
B52's
AC/DC

I'd think of more, but this dang migraine's killing me.

I challenge YOU to write something other than that one reggae song when you're sucking on a five paper joint. :D

:eek: Wow good list! I own a lot of single albums of the above mentioned groups, but not nearly enough to compare multiple albums.

And one more to add to my list just to annoy MJKTool.

Tool albums sound the same.

Even though I like them...Minor Threat. Seriously. They could have cut off Complete Discography after the first 5 tracks and you would get the idea.

I'll second The Ramones, as well. But I don't like them. ;)

AC/DC even says that about themselves.

Somewhere, on the radio, in the last couple of days, I heard someone saying that about AC/DC, then doing a parody of them singing Hokey Pokey and making it rock. It was pretty funny.

I also think, overall (with some exceptions), the Rolling Stones songs sound pretty much the same.

That was Jim Brewer aka Goat Boy from SNL. He does that on his TV special on Comedy Central.

Fischerspooner.

It's sleazy Eurotrash influenced dance music, but it's oh so good in a guilty pleasure sort of way. And it all sounds the same.

Their music is featured in the new Hummer H2 commercial with the Hummer driving through the snow.

Live. All their songs follow the same formula: softly sung lyrics LOUD CHORUS softly sung lyrics LOUD CHORUS softly sung lyrics

rinse, repeat. I like them enough, but man, it gets old after a while.

<b>AC/DC</b> they don't change because they've found the "key" that works for them time and time again.

I think Lead singer Brian Johnson from a recent knac.com interview sums it up(although it's not so much about the music...)


"...I'm not trying to pretend that we do anything better than that. <b>It's exactly the same. </b> I remember in the mid to late '80s, one of our record company guys came to us and said we were going to have to change . Everybody has got these lovely leather coats on... I'm not going to tell you what we said to them, but what's that got to do with music? Jackyl are the same. They're just good boys that play good music."

LOL Best quote I ever heard came from Angus himself about this. He was asked by an Aussie journo when promoting an AC/DC album about 3 years ago, "What do you say to people who say you've just recorded the same album 14 times?"

He replied, "Well they're wrong aren't they? It's 15!"

You gotta love the man for that classic reply!

I disagree about Iggy. He has many different styles if you take his whole career into account. In fact you don't even have to do that. Take "Brick By Brick" for example. "Home", "Candy", and "P*ssy Power" are all pretty different. Of course YMMV and all that.

My vote would be for Filter. Every song is a different version of "Hey Man, Nice Shot"

Does Shania Twain starting every FRICKIN' song on her albums with some stupid phrase count? (i.e. Let's Go! Cmon! Alright! etc...)

Tool's sound has changed drastically from album to album. Compare "Jerk Off" to "Schism" and you'll have an idea of how much they've changed over the years.

Most of Orchid's music sounds pretty much the same, but it sounds good.

Most of the pop-punk groups are interchangeable.

Perhaps they've been gone too long for people to remember them, but for me, the poster children for this was a band called Boston.

1st album - hit
Rerelease 1st album with different titles - smaller hit
Wait 12 years, repeat process - still smaller hit.

Bad Company may have been the first to perfect this system though.
