Rolling Stones, "Gimme Shelter"
Misheard Lyrics:
Dave Pirner, you're just a show away.
Original Lyrics:
Rape, murder! It's just a shot away.
Dave Pirner is from Soul Asylum. I went to West High School with Dave, where he played in a band named The Schitz. (Editor's note: However, he was only 5 when this song was recorded, and not yet publicly known, so it's not the least bit possible that he could have been referenced in this song.)
