Sometimes, when listening to a song, you feel like "Uh oh, I've already heard that before! :-? ", or sometimes, it's even a rip-off.

So well, here is a topic to share your discoveries! (Please put links so that everyone can join the fun :P )

Here is what I got today, while listening to Dying Without a Name by Machine Men.

And it made me think about this track! ...



(I had a look for another topic using the search function, didn't find any ^^ )
Maybe it's better for you, mankind, not to know what's going on!

"Wasted Time" and Deep Purple's "Anya".

"Waking The Demon" by Bullet for my Valentine and Slayer's "Spirit in Black"

"This Means War" by Avenged Sevenfold and "Sad But True" , obviously from Metallica

Shine by Avalon sounds a lot like Amaranth by Nightwish.
Star Rider by Unisonic reminds me of Stargazers by Avantasia.

Edguy's Nobody's Hero doesn't sound like any other song to me but it does sound like it would have also worked if it were performed by HIM. I couldn't find another thread that would have anywhere to put that and I didn't really want to start a new one.

Gamma Ray's New World Order song is a rip off of Judas Priest's Hell Bent For Leather,
Cellador's Leaving All Behind song is a rip off of Helloween's Victim Of Fate.
Golden Resurrection's Man With A Mission is a rip off of Vince DiCola's Training Montage (Rocky IV soundtrack).
Those are the most obvious ones.

I'm sure most of Timo Tolkki's post Stratovarius albums are all sound alikes of something.

Rosso just made me discover ARIA. They sound good, but so much Maiden-like... :roll:

Vandroya's Why Should We Say Goodbye: (What does the name Vandroya remind you of? :P )
the chorus part (starting from 1:08 on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9pXKIYhTCM) sounds almost the same as the finale of Seven Angels (You've been fighting for your soul...) - this could explain why I like the song on first listen. :lol:

And Tobi used Canon chords so you can say Seven Angels sounds like Canon in D. :lol:
