a parody of "The Boy from New York City" by The Ad-Libs
The tale of recently-ousted and newly-convicted ex-Maricopa County (AZ) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, he of "Tent City" infamy, now facing sentencing and hoping for a Pardon from that boy from New York City, Donald Trump. Written and recorded a while back, it's a great backgrounder on "Sheriff Joke"...with a shout-out to the Rhinestone Cowboy, no less...RIP Glen.

Astronomical!
Story about this misheard lyric by: James: I've been trying to figure out what was said in this segment of the original track, and couldn't figure it out until listening to the "Bootsified to the Nth Degree" version from the EP.
"In the End," Linkin Park
Misheard Lyrics:
I tried so hard and got so far.
But in the end, it doesn't really matter.
I had to fall to lose it all.
But in the end, it doesn't really matter.
I put my time in you.
Original Lyrics:
I tried so hard and got so far.
But in the end, it doesn't even matter.
I had to fall to lose it all.
But in the end, it doesn't even matter.
I put my trust in you.
Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji: I play this song many times for remembering Chester Bennington and his band. One of my favorite bands that I love and this song now I'm saving into my playlist. About this song: Formed in 1996 as Xero, this band released their debut studio album, "Hybrid Theory". It was released on 24 October 2000. The first single from that album, "One Step Closer", reaching #75 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #24 on the UK Singles Chart. The second single, "Crawling", reaching #79 Billboard's Pop Chart and #16 on the UK Singles Chart. Unfortunately, the third single, "Papercut", failed to entering Billboard's Pop Chart but reaching #14 on the UK Singles Chart. Later, their fortunate was giving to the fourth single, "In the End". And finally, entering them into one-hit wonder fame after the album, "Hybrid Theory", charting very well and also making "In the End" the highest position on Billboard's Pop Chart where it reaching #2. "In the End" was also reaching #8 on the UK Singles Chart. With reaching #2 on Billboard's Pop Albums Chart and #4 on the UK Albums Chart at that time in the beginning of the 2000s, "Hybrid Theory" has sold 30 million copies worldwide. So, congrats for Mike Shinoda, Chester Bennington, and friends, for their success of their singles (including "In the End" as my favorite song from them) and their debut studio album, "Hybrid Theory". Thanks.
