the whole music parts are the same. So are the chorus.

I bet they hired them as songwriters.

When did they release it? I'm just curious because I can't find any record of that song being released officially anywhere.
July.

maybe it was co-written? mitch allan and bowling for soup both have their own versions of "1985"
mitch allan wrote the song 1985. He then gave it(also read as sold it to) to bowling for soup so they could use it for their single. they then changed the lyrics a little bit to make it their own.

alright, my bad. i guess the other example off the top of my head that i can think of is jackson browne and glenn frey co-wrote "Take It Easy," and both have their own recordings. regardless, i'm guessing that's what is going on with RR and FH.
i just came back to edit my original post to say that this happens all of the time too...sorry about that. you beat me to fixing that...

at least to me it seems that this song was sold twice to two different bands. which could be fucked up if neither band knew this. This also happened with that Kelly Clarkson and Beyonce song that used the same composition for their singles. the dude who wrote it got exposed but i'm not sure what happened after that.

whether if the bands are good or not(what everyone else is saying) is purely just opinion and not the point of this whole debate.

YEAH. Bowling for Soup should start being more original and stop stealing songs from others. There needs to be a news post on AP calling them out too!
i never said stole. nice try though.

I believe that guy wrote the song. He is the one listed for both Runner Runner and Framing Hanley. He's also a song writer/producer. As I said right before this I could care less if they used songwriters. It's just interesting that it's the same song.

Runner Runner released it on an EP in 2009 and they are credited with the songwriting. Either FH bought it (lame) or stole it (even more lame).
oops forgot to include you in the multiquote...

OR option number 3. The songwriter sold it twice to two different bands. Which is shady business.

Um, pretty sure the label or publicist picked it, not us.

And sorry, any band or "artist" that co-writes is pretty much a joke.
so it was the label/publicist(aka NOT absolutepunk) that did this. i knew it!!! haha.
