Some songs have titles that aren't used in the lyrics, and end up becoming better known for their lyrics than their title. Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is better known for the refrain "Everybody must get stoned" than it is for the title.

Comments & Submittor Name
|Fitz & The Tantrums||The Walker||Oh, here we go|
Feel it in my soul
Really mean it, mean it, so go
Gotta feed it - heart, it takes control
Really mean it, mean it - Jonathan S.
|Garbage||Vow||I came to cut you up./I came to knock you down./I came around to tear your little world apart. (Note: "cut" and "knock" are changed out every verse.) - Brian Kelly|
|Train||50 Ways To Say Goodbye||There is no mention of the number 50 anywhere in the song. In fact, the only lyrics that are prominent are "Help me, help me, I'm all out of lies and ways to say you died." - Isac|
|Mission Of Burma||Academy Fight Song||The word "academy" is used a lot, but at no point are the words "academy fight song" used. - G|
|Emery||Piggy Bank Lies||This is where you say, "It's not what it looks like"|
He's got his hands wrapped around your waist
And I want this - do you want it?
And I hate this, but you flaunt it
It sounds absurd, so I waited for my own eyes
To put a face on the person that built these lies
And I want this - do you want it?
Could've fooled me, 'cause I bought it - Jonathan S.
|The Script||The Man Who Can't Be Moved||"Cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me And your heart starts to wonder where on this Earth I could be Thinking maybe you'd come back here to the place that we'd meet And you'd see me waiting for you on the corner of the street So I'm not moving I'm not moving, yeah" However, it is worth noting that the title does appear a couple times in the song, just not in the chorus, which is what most people know of the song - Insertnamehere|
|Fitz And The Tantrums||6AM||It's 6 in the morning, I'm still awake|
My sleepless heart is torn up, babe
A love song's on the radio,
But these words I hear – they're not for me, no.
[Note: It's true, "6AM" and "six in the morning" are the same thing, but the singer never uses the former (the song's official title), only the latter.] - Jonathan S.
|Fitz And The Tantrums||Spark||Don't they know, the speaker is about to explode?|
Don't they know, this building is about to blow?
This building is about to
Blow, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh - Jonathan S.
|The Script||Science and Faith||"You won't find faith or hope down the telescope. You won't find heart and soul in the stars. You can break everything down to chemicals, but you can't explain a love like ours - Alan O.|
|R.E.M.||Texarkana||I would give my life to find it./I would give it all./Catch me if I fall. - Brian Kelly|
|Old Man Markley||Beyond The Moon||Don't wanna lose my mind like Gary Busey did Once upon a time, he was the same as you and me But, if I lose my mind like Gary Busey did Promise me you'll be around to keep me company (It's worth noting that the title does actually make an appearance. However, it's mixed in with a bunch of other lyrics in the verses, making hard to tell that from just listening that it IS the song's title.,) - Jonathan S.|
|The Monkees||For Pete's Sake||This song is often mistakenly thought to be titled "In This Generation" or "This Generation" because that phrase is prominent in the song. There is no mention of the phrase "For Pete's Sake" anywhere in its lyrics. - Isac|
|Anna Kendrick||Cups||From the original soundtrack of the movie "Pitch Perfect". It was a remake of Lulu and The Lampshades' "Cups (You're Gonna Miss Me)", which was a rendtion of and old folk song by J.E.Mainer's Mountaineers. I don't believe that the word "cups" was used in any of these versions. - Open Mike|
|Muse||Bliss||The lyric is "Give me all the peace and joy in your mind, I want the peace and joy in your mind, give me the peace and joy in your mind" Why the title isn't "Peace" instead of "Bliss"? - Nurul|
|Muse||Uno||I thought it was a song with Spanish language, but it's not. The lyric is "You could've been number one". Why the title isn't "One" instead of "Uno" if it doesn't contain any word in Spanish language? - Nurul|
|Muse||Hyper Music||The most famous lyric is "You know that I don't want you and I never did, I don't love you and I never will" - Nurul|
|Muse||Muscle Museum||"I don't want you to adore me, don't want you to ignore me, when it pleases you" I thought the title was "Ignore" but when I searched for the title I only found Paramore song - Nurul|
|Muse||Sunburn||Chorus : She burns like the sun, and I can't look away, and she'll burn our horizon make no mistake - Nurul|
|Muse||Hysteria||I want it now, I want it now - Nurul|
|Grass Roots||Let's Live For Today||The band members omit the word "let's" from the lyrics. During the choruses, they say "Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today." - Isac|
