The electronic duo's new single 'Sick Boy' is getting a lot of attention from the skeleton clique, but not necessarily for the right reasons...
Hoards of angry music fans have taken to Twitter overnight (January 17th) as The Chainsmokers dropped their new song, entitled 'Sick Boy', on an unsuspecting public.
Yes, while Drew and Alex certainly have their legions of adoring fans, many have been bombarding social media with angry comments for one very specific reason - they think 'Sick Boy' sounds like a Twenty One Pilots song:
Sick Boy by The Chainsmokers sounds like a song by Twenty One Pilots.... Hmmmmm— Craig (@heyykenny) January 17, 2018
The Chainsmokers new song is literally a ripoff of twenty one pilots. It went from worse to worser! pic.twitter.com/fTFja554I8— frank (@franktbh) January 17, 2018
'Sick Boy' by the Chainsmokers sounds like it's from a twenty one pilots cover band that decided to attempt their own original song... #KnockOff— Monique (@mo_vasq15) January 18, 2018

...wait you’re telling me that’s the Chainsmokers? 🤔🤔 heh. Could’ve fooled me
First Justin Timberlake decides to be Robin Thicke, then The Chainsmokers decide to be Twenty one pilots, where does it end?— Krys Pescinski (@SoKryspy) January 18, 2018
I’m sorry but do The Chainsmokers really just attempt to make Heathens 2.0 and make it one of their worst songs released to date. Oh my god the vocals don’t even align with the beat 💀😭 only in Tr*mps America is this considered a ‘Hit’ Twenty One Pilots Sweetie I’m So Sorry pic.twitter.com/mKO1CLN4cw— Kevin Garcia (@iamkevg) January 18, 2018
So let me get this straight, the chainsmokers were shit talking twenty one pilots last year and now they changed their sound to emulate them? pic.twitter.com/botz60054b— Gen (@runningbullets) January 18, 2018
The chainsmokers ripped off the 1975 for 'paris' and now twenty one pilots for 'sick boy' and that's the tea. pic.twitter.com/jwH3onXzNy— e lla (@ellaaahhh) January 18, 2018
As you can see, there's a lot of feelings going on here.
So let's be real - while we get that the new song has a bit of a 'Heathens' vibe to it, we reckon it is a bit of a stretch to say it actually sounds like it could be a TØP song. Maybe fans are just so starved by Tyler and Josh's hiatus that they are grasping at straws?
What do you guys think? Does The Chainsmokers' 'Sick Boy' really sound like they are copying Twenty One Pilots? Let us know what you think over in the Facebook comments.
