Sublime With Rome
Sublime combined with Rome Ramirez
A real example. Formed by the two surviving members of the band Sublime, and Rome Ramirez, a Mexican-American singer and guitarist originally from Fremont, CA. They teamed up in early 2009, intending to form a new band called Sublime, but couldn't legally use the name because original frontman Bradley Nowell (who died in '96) had trademarked the name. So they used this name instead.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"What I Got"
The Lyrics:
Lovin' is
Is what I got.
It should be: Loving is, it's what I've got OR's what I have.
Submitted by: JC Foster
"Saw Red"
The Lyrics:
Every day I love her just a little bit more
And she loves me the same.
He needs to compare how much she loves him to something. Using "the same" without a comparison is incorrect Example: "Every day I love her just a little bit more and she loves me the same as the last time I asked her how much she loved me." It just doesn't have the same ring to it....
