You might even get them to throw in these Smiths imitators, The Holiday Crowd, for free:
Yoko Ono totally broke up The.......................plastic ono band
Rush were a poor man's version of Yes.
The Alarm —$——-> U2
You spelled "better" wrong
If someone didn't tell me I would think that is the Smiths. I loathe the Smiths so I don't know a ton of their songs and would just think that is one of them.
Heresy! You will burn at the stake for this!
Aerosmith poor man's Rolling stones
Jamiroquai a poor man's Stevie Wonder
Lenny Kravitz a poor man's Jimi Hendrix
Angelic Upstarts a poor man's The Clash
Ryley Walker a poor man's Van Morrison
Wait...I thought they were the same guy.
Terence Trent D'arby —$——-> Prince
I'm a binary (black and white) thinker and tend to also have syntax errors and have a "that does not compute" response to some questions.
In this case, for me, a poor mans version of an artist would have to fall into this kind of thing:
Brit Floyd is a poor man's version of Pink Floyd. i.e. poor man's version is always a tribute band or maybe a cover band.
Would this be the Poor Man's John Lennon singing "Baby, You're a Rich Man"?
David Coverdale----Robert Plant
I have a winner for this.Whoever signed them to a MAJOR label was out of their mind.
Goo Goo Dolls (early stuff) poor man’s version of The Replacements.
(Though I like early goo goos)
You spelled "even more annoying than" wrong
I was actually going to go with John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band(tho the Eddie and the Cruisers Soundtrack is classic), is a poor man's version of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
As for John Mellencamp and the Boss...two totally different worlds and sounds
Poor man's Jefferson Airplane (I like Shocking Blue quite a bit though!).
(Early) Soul Asylum were also the poor man's Replacements.
Or were they the poor man's Goo Goo Dolls?
Poor man's The Cure.
Interpol - poor man's Joy Division
