Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Linkin Park

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Until the sun rises up

Linkin Park's, "Forgotten"
The Misheard Lyrics:
In the memory of family
As I'm burning them
The Real Lyrics:
In the memory you'll find me
Eyes burning up
The Story: The first few times I listened to this song, this is what I thought I heard. I thought that the "memory of family" part could make sense, but "As I'm burning them" was... odd... I came to the conclusion that he was singing about being forgotten or disowned by his family or close friends and was either burning things which reminds him of them, or mentally "burning" them from his mind/ to forget them. However, I still thought this was odd, so In The End (pun intended), I decided to look them up and then I found the real words and thought "Ah. Well that makes more sense." - Submitted by: Laurence Knott

The Misheard Lyrics:
One miniature rock star
The Real Lyrics:

The Story: I was showing my best friend Meteora and she was asking me if she could hear the miniature rock star song. I was like, wtf? When 'Hit The Floor' came on, she started saying 'miniature rock star'. Then I realized what she was on about. When I posted this in a magazine, the editor said that a lot of journalists heard it that way, too. - Submitted by: Gabz_LP

The Story: 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. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
