Haha, he must've either confused threads or is joking. I can't imagine a non-Sonic Youth fan singling out Do You Believe In Rapture? as one of the few if not only SY song they enjoyed.

I often like moments in many of their songs, but that one rules all the way through.

While I am not a fan of wavves, this is silly. It's not a unique chord progression for punk rock, that said...the chord progression is the only similarity.

Different melody, different hook, different back up vocals, different drum beat and slower tempo.


Pretty much all rock music until the mid 60s used the same chord progressions, and especially in blues and jazz and etc. (not so much with jazz) but different singers would put their different stamps on it.


The reason I do not like wavves has nothing to do with naked rayguns, infact Im not super impressed with naked rayguns or most chicago music...

wavves just rode the "gutteral trash can mix" hype of the black lips and etc. and write the same song over and over. They have two songs, the fast one and the slow one but nothing ever interesting happens.

Haha, what? the entire riff for "So Bored" is exactly the same and there's only one riff in the whole song! Wavves' early stuff is vaguely noisey, vaguely surfy, vaguely melodic punk songs... which was totally Naked Raygun's thing... nowadays, obviously, it's Blink-182...

Anyway, as far as no-fi trashcan-recorded music goes, Coachwhips is the only band I really listen to.

Hole : Starbelly (but it's a producer piece)
Helmet : Wilma's Rainbow
Christian Death : Incendiary Lover
Queen : Another One Bites the Dust
Phil Collins : You Can't Hurry Love (if covers count)

Running on empty now.

That's what I am saying. Riffs are riffs, so many ppl use the same riffs.

There are only so many chords, n all that.

Besides the riff the two songs are completely different.

Just the state of music and all that.

Anyways, Wavves suck.

haha what? There are an INFINITE number of riffs that no one has even thought of yet. Really, there absolutely is no reason whatsoever why two bands should ever have the same main riff in a song. Unless you're just playing boring 3 power chord punk shit. Wavves obviously ripped the riff off, as his entire sound is a reference to NR.

I guess...

I mean, remember the chord progression thread?

You posted a chord progression and I used it to create a creative song, that you even liked alot and used in one of your blaze videos.

Same chords, but I made it different than however you probably originally conceived it.

Suppose I'm playing the devil's advocate a bit here, because I also added interesting bits of my own.

Oh well

I'm not really a big fan of naked ray guns. Or Wavves.

I thought of more:

Blink-182: Dammit (Growing Up)
The Charlie Daniels Band: The Devil Went Down to Georgia
Rise Against: Prayer of the Refugee
Atreyu: Becoming the Bull
Avenged Sevenfold: Bat Country (although I can't say I really dislike them yet at the same time I can't call myself a fan, but who can resist a song with Hunter S. Thompson references and samples the Riddler's carnival fortune teller machine from Batman Forever?)
