They do sound pretty similar, good catch. But a lot of SY leads and rhythms sound pretty identical, similar chords and voicings and all that. With how much they've written, I bet they sometimes forget how a song goes and rewrite it subconsciously.

Yeah, I think also Lee didn´t notice the similarity when making Rats. I think most of those same kind of songs in popular music culture are not intentional, of course some are.

I'm going out on a limb to say Green Day sounds like Belle and Sebastian.

"State That I am In" by Belle and Sebastian reminds me of...

.. agh! Some Bob Dylan song- a big one- that I can't recall the name of because my brain isn't functioning!! Anyway, they basically completely ripped it off.

I hate Belle and Sebastian.

Alta and More Than A Feeling don't share anything aside from a 4-chord foundation. Not even the strumming position is the same, and the feeling of the songs is totally different. I've never agreed with this comparison.

G n' R: "Civil War"
Dylan: "Knocking on Heaven's Door" (which GnR covered, right? Did they do that on purpose or were they fucking stupid?)

Both use a I-V-VI chord change with the same rhythm.

Try singing it:

"I don't need your heaven's door. (hey hey yeah yeah yeah)"

And "war" sounds like "door!"

Again, purposeful or stupid?

There's a fine line between homage and theft.

They both start with only the bass guitar, but i dont see how its similar beyond being an unaccompanied bass guitar?
