Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> VNV Nation

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 Misheard Lyrics:
I only come here seeking peas
The Real Lyrics:
I only come here seeking peace
The Story: This misheard lyric has since become a minor legend. At the last VNV Nation London show, people threw frozen peas onto stage when this song was sung! A few months later, an article on the London 'cybergoth' culture in the London Evening Standard misprinted the band name as 'VMP Nation'. By the following summer, VMP T-shirts were in circulation, complete with pea motif and the misheard lyric in question. - Submitted by: Jonny EOL
