Godsmack / Alice In Chains

Post by Hoponpop » Sat Oct 29, 2005 3:05 pm

ive noticed some odd similarities between these bands, rather from just godsmack off alice in chains

their logos:
kinda small, best i could find

and then alice in chains has facelift (amazing album)

Image

and then godsmacks faceless

Image

not the exact same, but similar names and covers.

alice in chains has their legendary jar of flies while godsmack has their own acoustic EP, 'the other side' now, i dont take this as directly ripping them off, but i felt obligated to at least include it

and finaly, the name of the fucking band, Godsmack, strangly resembles track 9 on AIC's Dirt.

it may not seem like it but im entirley open to explanations and arguments. (and even more open to agreement!)

I thought you told me they started as an AIC cover band? or were you just assuming that the explanation?

Didn't you know that Godsmack got their name from the Alice In Chains song?

As a huge Godsmack fan, I will tell ya some facts.

Godsmack was never a AiC cover band. Sure they were influenced but hey who doesn't get influenced right?

Sully Erna lead singer of Godsmack stated that they got their name from a moment when their ex-drummer Joe Darko had a cole sore on his lip. Sully was making fun of him all day about it, and they had a photo shoot coming up. So the next day Sully had a sore on his lip, same place and size. Their guitarist Tony Rombola told Sully that he just got Godsmacked! The name struck and so then Godsmack was born.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask me, I'll do my best to answer them.

BTW Sully Erna has a book out called "The Past We Choose" excellent book to read.
