Having a history of ripping off Alkaline Trio riffs, here is another clear example:

Alkaline Trio-For Your Lungs Only EP(1998)



verse riff starts at 0:19

Blink-182-Not Now(recorded 2003 S/T Session, released on Greatest Hits comp 2005)



riff starts at 0:47

Pretty sure Blink has said repeatedly that they're huge fans of Alk3 and have been influenced by them on the later albums a little bit.

They are definitely similar, but honestly, who cares.

Alkaline Trio rips off themselves!!




I love Alkaline Trio though. Blink sucks.

I steal cool chord progressions all the time. It's something you can get away with because they've all been taken. Sometimes it's blatant, sometimes it's not. The vocal melody is a tool most bands use that distract from it, and it typically works.

i'm a huge fan of Alkaline Trio and a pretty big fan of Blink 182. With that said, who gives a fuck?

Except blink made a way better song with that riff, so all is forgiven. And, what xBranx said. Especially in the pop-punk genre.

Haha Not Now used to be my favorite blink song for quite awhile, so I guess I'm a bit biased. I remember the first time hearing it and going, "wow, this is better than most of S/T, why the Hell is it a b-side?" That, and I'm not the biggest fan of the vocals in the alkaline trio song. I've never really listened to them, but I will say I did enjoy listening to it anyways!

I'm probably a bit biased as well, seeing as Alkaline Trio is my favorite band and I hate Blink with the burning passion of a thousand suns.

Even their older stuff? I don't get why, Dude Ranch through TOYPAJ have a pretty similar sound to the alkaline songs posted in this thread to me I'm enjoying both at the moment haha
