    I thought the same thing about the band JET the first time I had heard "Cold Hard Bitch", the guitars definitely had the sound!

    I get Imagine Dragons confused with Cold Play from time to time.

    That's a lot of salad for doods that aren't selling a lot of records.
    The singer has a major college degree to fall back on too.

    That's funny, because while I can see the similarity of a few songs, they've left very different marks in history. Weezer has had a long and varied career, which is still alive, while The Offspring are quintessentially a 90's era band, who are seldom heard outside that realm.

    Actually, it's Spoon - Kooks - Kaiser Chiefs; can't keep them straight, not sure why they overlap in my mind.

    I see confusing the Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs, and Run Run Riot, but Spoon sounds pretty different to me. Maybe I haven't heard their stuff that sounds like the others though.

    Yeah, the musical styles may be different - and consistently different. But there's a certain sound to the singer and instrumentation that mixes things up for me.

    my favorite Spoon song


    a good Kooks song


    and the Kaiser Chiefs

    Is that like Ra Ra Riot on auto-correct?

    Yep. Typing fast, and not reading.

    Good tunes. I forgot about that Spoon track. I can hear what you mean now. You can mix in a smidge of Kings of Leon with that too.

    I used to think this was STP

    Ha! I used to think that was Bowie whenever it came on. It's a good tune.

    First time I heard Sister Hazel, I thought maybe Blues Traveler had gone pop. Turns out, that was a frequent problem.

    Once again, thanks for bumping this up. I realized that I forgot to mention one set of bands that I always mix up. Death Cab For Cutie and The Decemberists.
