    What older band does this sound like?

    Every time I hear this song I swear it sounds like a band I used to listen to. Especially the chorus. Any ideas?

    I don't think so. I just clicked through some of my old Tool stuff. I'm thinking it's the voice or something about the way he sings in that chorus or the guitar in it. Not sure but it's driving me crazy.

    How about the Goo Goo Dolls? Quite a bit after my time, but there you have it.

    Just to be clear. It's not the band or even the song. Just the chorus.

    The guitar sounds a heck of a lot like Incubus-Nice to Know You. Just a little softer than Inc. Wait until you get about :37 in.

    I agree, Chevelle sounds a lot like tool or a perfect circle. I like them all though.

    Yeah but it has more to do with the voice.

    agreed but I'm pretty sure it's neither of those. I think it's something earlier. Possibly an early 90's band like in the Dinosaur Jr. genre.

    The intro sounds like Nirvana. The rest reminds me a little of Tool.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I get a Deftones vibe from the intro.
