Hey so I don't know if this has ever been brought up here, is otherwise commonly known, or what

I've started listening to the radio again, after like 20 years of not. I never really listened to Rise Against - my ex was into them like 12 years ago and that was pretty much the extent of what I recall of them. Til I turned on the radio and was like "hey this song sounds a lot like the Megas, fuckin sweet!"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7bvMlfmTm4 - this song specifically made me think it

Anyway, I was just wondering if you guys were fans of them. I find my music tends to adopt elements of bands I like. Any way it goes, I've finally given Rise Against a chance because they sounded like you guys and I'm happy about that decision.

I used to really like them back in high school. I listened to Siren Song of the Counter Culture quite a lot.

That being said the vocals in the song you linked remind me somewhat of the Protomen, but I don't hear the Megas at all.

See, I heard the song on the radio and thought it reminded me of the Megas - rather than the other way around.

I think mostly in the guitar tone, but also in the overall style. I'd never really given Rise Against a chance until I made that connection.

Rise Against is a p good band. It's like a perfect high school / college punk band
