What are some successful songs that were attempts to write a song like another band? For example, Kurt Cobain was trying to sound like Pixies with "Smells like Teen Spirit" and The Offspring's "All I Want" was an attempt at a Bad Religion song.

trying to find information about the ITALIA t-shirt Kim Deal wore for some concerts around 2005. from what I can remember about it, feels like it was more of a one-off. but hoping some fans of football, and/or of the Pixies, can shed some light. [more inside]

I found several "favourited" videos in my YouTube account that were definitely not my or my partner's doing. What could have happened? Was I hacked? [more inside]

A lot of bands I like say The Pixies are one of the bands that most influenced them, so I downloaded some of their music, and I hated most of what I heard. What am I missing?
