imagine two bands (years apart) having the same sense of humor... and one being influenced by the other... thats called honoring/influencing, not stealing
There's a thin line between being influenced by and completely ripping off. Watch "Poppin'" and then watch "All The Small Things" and/or "Man Overboard." The similarities are blatant. Dressing up to make fun of celebrities, midgets, dance routines, glorified versions of themselves. Need I go on?
Believe me, I enjoy All Time Low too, but holy shit.
But oh hey, you live in Hawthorne. What's up?
