Did anybody ever notice now much of a ripoff Jet is to AC/DC? I mean, I don't want to sit here and bash Jet to death but they deserve this. Notice how both bands are Australian? Notice how both bands use Gibson and Gretsch? Notice how both bands use Marshall amps? Notice how both bands have two brothers? Notice how both bands use distorted open chords? (Very many bands use them, but they consistently use them.) This seriously annoys me to death. Even GuitarWorld bashed Jet for copying AC/Dc's sound. Any comments or replies?

ok so from what i gather Australian brothers cannot be in a band and use distorted open chords and Gibson and Gretsch guitars through marshall amps or their AC/DC rip-offs

but yeah they do rip off AC/DC but not in the aforementioned ways.
TEEP!!! Oiiiiiiieeeeeeeyyy!!!!!!

My question is why the **** is this band being discussed in the modern rock forum. They obvious borrow, or some would say steal, from classic bands like AC/DC the beatles. They are a basic band with the classic guitar, bass, drum, and singer configuration. The songs they play are reminicent (sp) of the songs that we would have heard in the 1970's, so why are they considered modern, if that is the case. I seems somewhat ill conceived to classify a band based on the time period during which they were performing and writing material.

By the way, I think that the singer for Jet sounds a lot like Bon Scott, whether it is natural or he is trying for that effect is another story.

Don't forget Jet went and bought all their guitar riffs from Ac/dc at a yard sale.
They went to iggy and the remaining beatles.
THATS why they sound like ac/dc

how is jet a rip-off?... is it because they have a SIMILAR SOUND to ac/dc and the beatles? wow who would have ever thought a band that is influenced by bands they like may possibly sound like that? and as for the equiptment? who the **** cares? i bet you hate jet because all you listen to is classic rock all day and disregard any modern music... the truth is, classic rock is over, everyone has been listening to it for decades, and its time to get your head out of your ass and stop thinking classic rock is STILL the greatest thing since sliced bread. dont get me wrong, i love classic rock, but thats not the only type of music i center myself to.

Thats possibly the dumbest thing ever.... so sue Jet for being Aussie, its not their faults... they were born there. Maybe they like Gibson and Gretsches, who the hell knows. Notice how they both use Marshall Amps? Yeah, them and the other million bands that exist in the world. Notice how both bands have two brothers? Oasis has two brothers, are they ripping off AC/DC? Creedence Clearwater Revival has two brothers, are they being ripped off? Notice how both bands use distorted open chords? Wake up, nearly ever band on the face of this earth uses open chords quite a lot, don't mean jack ****. Seriously, people who bash Jet annoy me to death. So trying to sound similar to your favorite bands is ripping them off? Lets face it no matter what type of music you play, you will always be ripping someone off, deal with it.

You are not linking the facts together, do Oasis and Creedence Clearwater Revival play similar to AC/DC??? NO!
Do Millions of bands in the world use Gibsons and Gretches and Marshall especially to sound almost EXACTLY like AC/DC????NO,
and do bands always use distorted open chords to sound like AC/DC?? I dont think so because it is mosted used for punk/emo music nowadays.
So you are now saying Jet sounds smilar to Ac/Dc because it is Jet's favorite band, how come slash 's sound is difference from his favorite bands like Aerosmith and led zeppelin etc???
When people defends Jet annoys the **** outta me, just face the facts, Jet is ripping off Ac/Dc.

you all have to be the dumbest human beings alive, i will back that up
JET is simply playing what they like, and i imagine they like the AC/DC sound, that is called playing your influences.
gibson is a good guitar and marshall is a good amp, your point is moot there...
distorted open chords, yeah, AC/DC was the only band EVER to do that, and fyi, AC/DC copied some bands too. i mean music greats copied bands, blue suede shoes by elvis was a cover song.
it's called paying tribute, it's their music, they write it and the words, if they want to sound like AC/DC why is that a bad thing?
"immitation is the sincerest form of flattery" JET is their own band, and diserve just as much as AC/DC

EDIT: and furthermore AC/DC is heavy metal while JET is alternative

music never really gets anything new, it's a redoing of older stuff, nothing in music has changed except the insturments. we are still using the same notes, same scales, same stuff. if you want to say that then AC/DC is copying Bach, since they can be traced back to him.
JET writes their own songs, and they like the 70s sound, why you guys have to approve is beyond me, isnt it all about the artist's taste in music?
they are paying homage to bands that came before them.

So they suck because they are trying to sound like bands they enjoy listening to? So just because they happened to come along in the 2000's instead of the 70's they are restricted to playing **** pop punk music?

You're a ****ing idiot. I'll give it to them that Jet does have alot of riffs similar to classic rock songs, but you little bastards that keep pointing this out OVER AND OVER again are pissing me off, damnit. Do you know how many THOUSANDS of bands use Gibson and Gretsh guitars? Do you know how many THOUSANDS of bands use Marshall amps? Do you know how many MILLIONS of people play open distored chords? And do you truly think that two brothers liked AC/DC so much, they decided to form a band because they were siblings? Wouldn't that mean Van Halen and CCR were also ripping AC/DC off? That only further proves that you're just jumping on the Jet-bashing bandwagon. Good Christ, kids today.

EDIT: And another thing. The lead singer plays through Hi-Watt and Orange amps most of the time. I've never seen them with a Gretsch guitar. Cester plays almost exclusively 335's from Gibson (nothing like an SG a la AC/DC) and Muncey uses Gibson V's, Firebirds, and Les Pauls (also, not SG's). And classifying all the amps Marshall makes into one category is idiotic as well. If you were in this room, I'd punch you in the face. Good day.

AC/DC isnt even completely Aussie. Only 1 member is. the Youngs are Irish and Brian Johnson is English i belive. Phil Rudd is the only member that was born in Austrailia.

bah, hardly anyone's truly American but they can still call themselves Americans. hell, even i'm first generation American-born hehe. and the Youngs are Scottish, Brian Johnson and Cliff Williams are English.

I'd rather a newer band rip-off a good band like AC/DC than a mediocre one like Green Day.

Let's just compare...

AC/DC Rip-offs:
Jet

Nirvana Rip-offs:
Fuel, Puddle of Mudd, Staind, and a ****load more.

Green Day Rip-offs:
I don't think that's neccessary - it's too depressing.

they have 4 singles off of their debut album..

and what does it matter of they are from australia and have brothers? do you think being related and being from a certain country has anything to do with sounding like a band? those are just coincidences.

get your heads out of your asses, its just music. fkn tards make having a band and playing music way more complicated than it has to be.
