    Actually they have a similar drum beat.
    Great opening songs for both albums.
    Love them both.

    It's 1994, and Van Halen are having a discussion. I'd like to present to you an example of an acceptable piece of dialogue, followed by an example of an unacceptable piece of dialogue.

    This is ACCEPTABLE

    Two great songs IMO. I'd take a copycat of a good song over something like Strung Out anyday.

    [img]graemlins/wtf.gif[/img] They don't sound the same to me. They have very simular drum beats by Alex, but the rest of the song is totally different.

    One I first heard "Seventh Seal", I thought that the drums and bass sounded very similar to "Poundcake". They aren't the first band to do that and certainly not the last.

    These two songs are very similiar because of the bands lazy attitude. Wasn't the same opening to "Top of the World" similiar to "Jump".

    Sammy's work ethic sucks!

    Why don't you chesseheads admit this [img]tongue.gif[/img]
