Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Slayer

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!).

Slayer's, "Piece By Piece"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I'll send you to Jamaica Confront the 'mon' you seek
The Real Lyrics:
I'll send you to your Maker Confront the God you seek
The Story: Sometimes, metal vocalists tend to "over-express" lyrics to the point of being misheard. In this case, Tom Araya's vocalization on "I'll send to your Maker" sometimes sounded like, "I'll send you to Jamaica." Speaking of Jamaica, "mon" is a common expression so to make it funnier, "Confront the 'mon' you seek." - Submitted by: Shing
