Has anyone noticed a similarity in the song structure of Sum 41's, "The Bitter End" to Metallica's, "Battery"? I was listening to my iPod the other day and they came up in order, and I couldn't help but think that the Sum song was very influenced by Metallica, excepting certain parts like the intro and a few middle bits. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if they were.

Ha, the comment posts on the Sum 41 song seem to support this as well. Guess I could've looked there first.

Me neither, due to him not being alive and all.

Whoa. I am surprised there isn't a lawsuit there those are so close. 0.o

I wonder what would happen if you subbed in Battery's lyrics....

I also didn't realise Sum 41 could, you know, do metal. :P
I won't lie, I really am a terrible guitarist. I'm learning though, so I would appreciate a bit of patience if I ask stupid questions or make incorrect statements.

Please and thank you.
