When I caught Dirty Looks doing "Oh Ruby" I thought is was early AC/DC that I had missed somewhere down the track. Oh and the video quality is total rubbish but you will get the drift when the vocals start.
I thought the same thing about the band JET the first time I had heard "Cold Hard Bitch", the guitars definitely had the sound!

In 1994 I used to confuse Weezer with The Offspring all the time. They kinda sound alike, but I do like The Offspring more.
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.

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

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.

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.
