does Billie Joe listen to Whitesnake?

i’ve been hearing this new Green Day song on the radio, and it seemed somehow familiar…

Green Day:

I walk a lonely road
The only one I that have ever known
Don’t know were it goes
But its home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk a…


An’ I’m gonna hold on for the rest of my days,
’cos I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

An’ here I go again on my own
Goin’ down the only road I’ve ever known,
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
An’ I’ve made up my mind
I ain’t wasting no more time

But, here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go again,
Here I go…

It’s not just me, is it? Even the pacing of the two songs is similar. i can’t have been the only one to notice this.
And for what it’s worth, the Whitesnake kicks ass on the Green Day, at least in this comparison.
