Different bands with same song names


#1

I was on youtube and looking up pop songs and i came across snow patrol’s new video, their song is called “In The End”. not a big deal but it could be, do you think its weird to have two different complete bands with the same song name. and i listened to the song and its nothing like ITE at all but the same song name. of course there are other songs with same names but there are some song names that is only used once. like for example; when making not alone, lp was going to name it “you are not alone” or something like that so they changed it to “not alone”. there are not two songs called “smells like teens spirit” or “enter sandman” or “dont stop believing”

what do you think?


#3

I quite agree with you a song should be connected to one band!!
HOWEVER I think there are so many songs and bands out there now it is very hard to actually find a title that hasnt been used before! Thats something to consider!

It’s a little off putting at first when someone mentions a song title and you think one song and they think another, but I think it’s okay. So long as the songs aren’t the same, or anything. Like StanleyElite said, there are so many songs out there these days that you can’t really find one that hasn’t been used that pertains to what your song is about. You could always go the “what the hell, that has nothing to do with anything” route, but…

Not really cause usually if they have the same name then they sound different. Rarely do they sound the same cause it will either be a different genre or a different use of instruments.


#6

but there are some songs that should be only named that song… title… thingie…


#7

Meaning, certain songs NEED to have a certain title?

What if there’s a song called The Murderer (by Alesana in particular) and it’s about someone who is a murderer? A good title for the song. But what if there is another song titled The Murderer (this one is fake so far as I’m concerned) and it’s more about a figurative murdering? It still fits, but now we have two song entitled to the same title.

I think you’re thinking of the Jessica Simpson song called With You. I’ve never heard of any Avril song by that name.

Avril Lavigne does share a song name with Linkin Park, but that song is called Forgotten. I mentioned that in an earlier post, but maybe you didn’t see it.

Fire - Dead by Sunrise and Madison Bray.
