    I'm sure all of you mistake one band for another, or associate a song with a certain band, only to find that it's done by someone else. I'm an aging fan of new music, so I have 2 things going on, which are working against each other: I'm bombarded with new songs by new bands, but my ability to retain all of this new information in my head, is constantly on the decline. So I have a long list of (mostly newer) bands that I confuse with other bands. Here's what comes to mind right now:

    Placebo, Interpol;
    Beach House, Best Coast;
    Local Natives, Neon Indian;
    Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Fiery Furnaces;
    Strokes, Hives, Vines, Jet, Struts, Band of Skulls;
    Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket;
    Los Lobos, Steve Winwood;
    Verve, U2;
    Gotye, Sting;
    Scissor Sisters, Elton John;
    Wild Feathers, John Mellencamp;
    Shaky Graves, Steven Tyler;
    Court Yard Hounds, Sheryl Crow.

    What else?

    Strokes/Hives/Vines are the only ones from your list. I play a little game where I try to guess which one of those is playing. When I win I get a candy.

    I can't think of any others. I tend to ignore most bands until I get obsessed with them, and then I learn all of their stuff so I don't get them confused much.

    When I first heard Indigenous (a 90's Blues band) I thought they were Big Head Todd and the Monsters. I could also pick out a whole mess of current Hard Rock bands that sound like the other. Pretty much why I listen to less Hard Rock/Metal than I used to.

    I have that Indigenous album. They're really good, but very derivative-sounding. I thought they were Stevie Ray Vaughan when I first heard them. Good call on a "sounds like" band.

    Definitely!

    They used to call STP "Stone Temple Pearljam". Some of their earliest stuff was very PJ-like, but then they later sounded a bit like the Beatles, or Led Zep, always someone else.

    I can't remember Reel Big Fish. I'll have to Google them & see what they did

    They're another white reggae band with a horn section, so they remind me of all those others.

    In my first list, I forgot to include Spoon and The Kooks. Something about their sound causes me to confuse them.

    When I was a kid I used to confuse Kool and the Gang:

    I use to always get The Fortunes and The Stampeders mixed up just like Mom would mix me up with my brother

    When I caught Dirty Looks doing "Oh Ruby" I thought is was early AC/DC that I had missed somewhere down the track. Oh and the video quality is total rubbish but you will get the drift when the vocals start.
