Story about this misheard lyric by: Peter: I just heard this song on the radio and remembered that when this song first started airing on the radio back in the fall of 1983 when I was 20-years old I couldn't understand what Mellencamp was singing. I'm glad from 'Am I Right' that I wasn't alone. Fortunately I was able to see the lyrics of the song a short-time after I first misheard it (I bought the album, "Uh-huh" for myself with money I got shortly after Christmas 1983, so I knew the lyrics before I embarrassed myself, royally), but I do remember at one point I did ask a couple of my fellow dorm residents at the University of South Florida how one would go about starving a clock or a cloak and I was met with blank stares (I'm glad they didn't laugh, they probably also misheard the lyrics as well).

In the box!
Story about this misheard lyric by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe: The "Box" in this instance would be the television (the song is about the negative effects T.V. has on the youth and people in general.) So one day I was singing this song around my friend, who used to be a big ICP (Insane Clown Posse, who had an album called "Riddle Box") fan, and this is what he thought I was singing. (It kind of does sound like he's saying "Riddle Box" on the recording, too!)
