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
|The Carpenters||Bless The Beasts And Children||Okay, this may sound like nitpicking, but on every version of this song, another "the" is placed before "children", making the title different. - Sheila Oh|
|Traditional||America, The Beautiful||Although it does mention America near the end and has the lyric "Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies", they are not sung together with " the". - Floyd DeBarber|
|Duran Duran||The Chauffeur||There is no reference to a chauffeur anywhere in the song. - Brit Boxx|
|The Chainsmokers||Roses||The word "Roses" isn't said in any of the lyrics, but instead references its guest vocalist, Philadelphia songstress Rozes. - John Howarth|
|Modern English||I Melt With You||The group sings "I'll stop the world and melt with you", but the correct title does not appear. - Brit Boxx|
|Childish Gambino||Redbone||He doesn't say the word "redbone" in any of the lyrics, but he does sing this in the chorus: "Stay woke / n****s creepin'". - Ariana Grande mocha swirl|
|5 Seconds of Summer||Try Hard||They do sing "try" and "hard" in the same phrase, but not together. The line goes "And she makes me feel, makes me feel / Like I try, like I try, like i'm trying too hard again". - Ariana Grande mocha swirl|
|Relient K||Elephant Parade||What's actually sung is, "Hip hip hooray for the elephants *ON* parade." - Jonathan S.|
|Logic||1-800-273-8255||This is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, and it's mentioned nowhere in the lyrics. - Ariana Grande mocha swirl|
|Diana Ross||Love Hangover||These two words are not sung consecutively, believe it or not. - Aretha Franklin Ajaye|
|Cheap Trick||Hummer||there is a 'hmm hmm' in the lyrics but that's it. The content has nothing to do with hummingbirds, the vehicle or that vulgar sexual slang word either. - Get Your Mind Out Of the Gutter|
|Abney Park||Whole Life Crisis||I may not live in mansions I may not live life grand But I live life to the fullest And that's all I have planned - Jonathan S.|
|Nirvana||Tourette's||This title, which refers to a mental disorder where someone stands up and swears a blue steak (among other traits) is not used in the song. In fact, on the lyric sheet all that's listed is, "Cufk", "Tish" and "Sips". You do the math. - Sailor Sam|
|Carly Rae Jepsen||I Really Like You||The word "really" isn't repeated zero times. It's repeated 6 times each. - John Howarth|
|LMFAO||Party Rock Anthem||The word "Party rock" is used as a lyric, but not the word "anthem" - JohnHowarth|
|Tom Petty||Mary Jane's Last Dance||People mistakenly identify this song as "Last Dance With Mary Jane", since those lyrics are actually in it. - Opie M.|
|Niall Horan||This Town||The only time "this" and "town" are used in the same phrase is in the line "It's funny how things never change in this old town". The words "Everything comes back to you" are used much more frequently. - Ariana Grande mocha swirl|
|Walter Egan||Magnet And Steel||He never sings these words consecutively, instead singing "For you are a magnet, and I am steel." - Opie M.|
|Enya||The Loxian Gate||The song is in Loxian, a language created by Enya, and the title does not appear in the translated version. However, it does make reference to "the gates of night". - Julian|
|Enya||Dark Sky Island||The closest lyric from this song is "In the darkness of the sky above", and the word "island" is nowhere in the song. However, it does refer to an actual "dark-sky preserve" on the island of Sark. - Julian|
