    Adams' album (like its source of inspiration) is getting rave reviews from critics. (You can listen to the whole album on YouTube.)

    But there are a certain number of people who think the album is from Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams.

    The only thing I care about less than Bryan Adams, is Taylor Swift.

    I'm pretty sure there are some people who don't realize that Bryan Adams' 1989 is based on a Taylor Swift album.

    11. Others were disappointed to discover their mistake.

    Oh wait. Ryan Adams covered Taylor Swift, not Bryan Adams? I see why everyone's upset now.
