Misheard Lyrics:
With anything 'bout us

Original Lyrics:
With anything 'bout us
And our kick ass true love tale
Story about this misheard lyric by: T'Ley: In my defense, I knew from the beginning that the lyric I heard couldn't be right, especially because the lead singer apologizes for swearing in the next line.

"Normal Chicks," Bowling for Soup
Misheard Lyrics:
You're not Christian Bale

You're not Kristen Bell
But you're pretty kick as as far as I can tell
Story about this misheard lyric by: T'Ley: Considering that Bowling for Soup occasionally makes references to homosexuality in their songs, I think I can be forgiven for making this mistake. But I'll admit, it is kind of funny.

Original Lyrics:
I'm just a product of my raising.
I say "hey y'all" and "yee haw."
Story about this misheard lyric by: Peggy Schmidt: Where I live, we have an area of the state called the Iron Range, once used for mining iron ore. I knew it probably wasn't referring to this. Then I thought of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and it being Southern, seemed to fit. I had to Google the actual lyrics to find out.
"One of Us," Joan Osborne
Misheard Lyrics:
What if God was watching us?

What if God was one of us?

When I think back on all the drugs
I did in high school,
It's a wonder I can think at all.

When I think back on all the things
I learned in high school,
It's a wonder I can think at all.

Misheard Lyrics:
What a butthole
Original Lyrics:

Stupid Band Names -> Latest Entries

Everything, Everything
A band name consisting of the same word twice in succession is tacky enough, but what's worse in this case is that there's already a band called Everything (just that word, once). (By the way, this band's name doesn't actually contain a comma, but I put it there anyway in case the name shows up on two lines after it gets approved.) Submitted by: Pete & Repete
