Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Steelheart

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!).

The Story: The first time ever I hear this song was more than four years ago when I was listening to the radio. After more than four years later, this song still playing on radio stations become the most playing song of all time while some other songs rarely playing on radio stations since more than four years ago. At that time, there is a song titled "She's Gone" recorded by Hall & Oates that also popular. But, "She's Gone" that I mean is performed by a rock band that formed by Miljenko Matijevic and become radio hit. About this song: Yes, Miljenko Matijevic and friends started off as a rock band that formed in Norwalk, Connecticut in 1990 and previously known as Red Alert. Whose members included James Ward on bass, Chris Risola on guitar, Jack Wilkenson on drums, and Miljenko Matijevic on vocals. Frank DiCostanzo joined as a second guitarist and John Fowler replaced Jack Wilkenson. They released their eponymous debut studio album on 10 May 1990. This album was produced by Bruce Dickinson, a producer and not the lead singer of Iron Maiden of the same name. With Miljenko Matijevic's emotional vocal, tours around the world to promote "She's Gone" and its parent album, the most requested song on radio stations, and its length (lasting at 6 minutes and 34 seconds long that previously done on Tears for Fears' "Shout" lasting at 6 minutes and 32 seconds long and later topping on Billboard's Pop Chart while some pop songs get 3 minutes long to radio stations), helped the first single and track #9 on that album, "She's Gone", success around the world and entering Billboard's Pop Chart with reaching #59 (this is similar that Saliva with "Always" in 2002 was faring better on Billboard's Pop Chart with reaching #51 and also charting well on the UK Singles Chart at #47 but the original recording was censored and replaced with less explicit). To promote their success of "She's Gone" and their debut studio album, they starting their tours around the world. And finally, with a little help from them, it reaching #40 on Billboard's Pop Albums Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA in 1991. It is the first time ever they have a greatest hit single. It is also entering them into one-hit wonder fame before track #4, "I'll Never Let You Go", from the same album released as the second single in 1991 become their last greatest hit single with reaching #23 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #24 on mainstream rock tracks chart. - Submitted by: Wisnu Aji
