Possible Misspelled Names:

These are the alternate spellings of the performer's name we've had to correct in submissions to amIright.

Marron5, Maroon Five

Band Name Origins:

  • Maroon 5's favorite computer game is Minesweeper. If you have ever noticed then you know that the 5 in minesweeper is MAROON, therefore they came up with their name Maroon 5. Submitted by: Smart
  • Some of the band members attended Five Towns College in Long Island, though they did not graduate there. The school's "mascot" is The Sounds, and the colors are Maroon and white. They got "5" from the name of the school, and "Maroon" from the school's colors. Submitted by: Val

Stupid Band Names:

  • It sounds like a name for a spacecraft. Submitted by: Alana
  • They won't say how they came up with it. It's probably because they don't want to admit that maroon is their favourite colour. Can you blame them? Submitted by: Joe Song

Song Parody Fragments:

"She will be loved"
Better Lyrics:
Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had no trouble with herself
They were always ther to help her
Why Would she relie on somenone else
How much I'd like to be them
With you they don't know
Joy's about lovingly fondle your lips of an angel

I don't mind drawing everyday
Right on the corner in my lonely hand
The same sweet girl with a breaking smile
No need to worry just to wait a while
Original Lyrics:
Beauty queen of only eighteen
She had some trouble with herself
He was always there to help her
She always belonged to someone else
I drove for miles and miles and wind up at your door
I found you so many times but somehow i want more

I don't mind spending everyday
Out on your corner in the pouring rain
Look for the girl with the borken smile
Ask her if she wants to stay a while
Submitted by: oussamak

This squid has taken it's toll on me
It's lost suction too many times before
And it's tentacles are sucking in front of me
I have no dinner
So I must say goodbye to this squid

This love has taken it's toll on me
She said goodbye too many times before
And her heart is breakin in front of me
But I have no choice cuz
I won't say goodbye anymore

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Harder To Breathe"
The Funny Lyrics:
Is there anyone out there cuz' it's getting harder and harder to breathe
Why They're Funny:
I like to call this song The Asthma Song. This line is so repetitive, especially at the end, and from the way Adam Levine is singing it (particularly at that point in the song), the listener just might want to walk over to the guy and lend him your puffer.
Submitted by: Dennis

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Makes Me Wonder"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Decisions that made my bed
Why They're Nonsensical:
Decisions AREN'T living things. They can't do things for you.
Submitted by: Dongquan
"Better That We Break"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Waking up is hard to do
Sleeping's impossible too
Why They're Nonsensical:
What IS impossible is to be neither asleep nor awake. That can only mean that you are dead.
Submitted by: rock music

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Through With You"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Cause saying "I Love You"
Has nothing to do with meaning it.
Why They're Insincere:
I AM saying I Love You, but I don't mean it.
Submitted by: Rocky
"Wake Up Call"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Six foot tall
Came without a warning so I had to shoot him dead
Why They're Insincere:
Six feet tall just isn't that tall nowadays (and this is from the album that came out this summer) especially considering Adam Levine is 5' 11 1/2". So WHY would the fact that the guy is six feet tall matter?
Submitted by: Song
There are additional insincere lyrics available.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"She Will Be Loved"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I don't mind spending every day
Out on your corner in the pouring rain!
Why They're Misrhymed:
Day and rain don't rhyme
Submitted by: sonikal
"Sunday Morning"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Sunday morning, rain is pouring.
Why They're Misrhymed:
In the song, they attempt to rhyme morning with pouring but they don't really rhyme, do they?
Submitted by: sonikal
There are additional misrhymed lyrics available.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Sunday Morning "
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Steal some covers, share some skin....
You twist to fit the mold that I am in

I loved this song until I figured out what it meant. Covers for a bed, sharing... skin. It's pretty obvious: he wants to sleep with her on Sunday morning.
Submitted by: wolfsong
"Harder To Breathe"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
And like a little girl cries in the face of a monster that lives in her dreams.
Why They're Inappropriate:
What does a scared little girl have to do with this song?

Dirty Song Lyrics:

The Dirty Lyrics:
Your salty skin, and how
it mixes in with mine
The way it feels to be
completely intertwined.
Why They're Dirty:
They are clearly sweaty and their bodies are “intertwined” so either they are having sex or this is very misleading
Submitted by: McKenna Varao
"One More Night"

Try to tell you stop but you're lipstick got me so out of breath.

Well try to tell you stop? I think it is clear what she is doing. (sex)

Bad Ringtone Choices:

"Wake Up Call"
The Lyrics:
Wake up call, caught you in the morning
With another one in my bed.
Don't you care about me anymore?
Don't you care about me? I don't think so!

Six foot tall, came without a warning
So I had to shoot him dead.
He won't come around here anymore.
He won't come around here. I don't feel so bad.
Another not around an ex-girlfriend thing, especially if she has a new boyfriend. The first part will make her think you're whining. The second part speaks for itself.
