Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Shinedown

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!).

Shinedown's, ".45"
The Misheard Lyrics:
And your staring down the barrel of a .45
Swimming through the a**es of another life.
The Real Lyrics:
And I'm staring down the barrel of a .45
Swimming through the ashes of another life.
The Story: Whenever I would sing the song, I say 'a**es'. But I didn't pay attention that it sounded wierd. Until I heard an acoustic version, that he said 'ashes'. I laughed so hard when I found out. - Submitted by: Supersix4
Shinedown's, "Bully"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Pushups in the dirt 'til the words don't hurt, can you hear me?
The Real Lyrics:
Push them to the dirt 'til the words don't hurt, can you hear me?
The Story: First couple of times I heard the song that's what I thought it was. Guess my interpretation was sort of a metaphor doing push-ups till the kid gets stronger and can fight back one way or another. - Submitted by: Jeremy
Shinedown's, "Cut the Cord"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Cut the corn!
The Real Lyrics:
Cut the cord!
The Story: The very first time I heard this song on the radio, I swore the song went "cut the corn". - Submitted by: James Cavaness
