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
|Tool||Faaip De Oiad||Though the title is latin, all of this song is in English. - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Manowar||Achilles, The Agony And The Ecstacy||Despite being almost half an hour long, this song has less than ten minutes of vocals and no mention of more than two of the words in the title together. - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Drist||Arterial Black||Along the way we learn things too hard|
Whisper out the way to stop my heart - Jonathan S.
|Fall Out Boy||A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me"||I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming|
She said, she said, she said, "Why don't you just drop dead?"
I don't blame you for being you
But you can't blame me for hating it
So say, what are you waiting for?
Kiss her, kiss her
I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late - Jonathan S.
|Bare Naked Ladies||Conventioneers||Does this song even have anything to do with conventioneers? - Doommaster1994|
|The Beatles||Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite||The word "being" is never heard, however, all the other words in the title are said in a row two or three times. - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|3 Doors Down||The Road I'm On||Chorus states " that's the same road that I'm on." Not anywhere in the song is the title referenced at all. - Jack|
|Bastille||Pompeii||While Pompeii is rather obviously alluded to as "the city that we loved", the song does not explicitly mention the word "Pompeii" - Insertnamehere|
|John Mellencamp||Authority Song||The only mention of the word "authority" is in the line "(Well) I fight authority, Authority always wins" but there is no mention of the word "song" anywhere in the song. - Isac|
|Europe||Song No. 12||Song No. 12 is the actual title of this song, which doesn't even happen to be track number 12 on the album it appears on. The title is absent from the lyrics, so it's just weird. - GlamRockNinjaLord|
|Jars Of Clay||Love Song For A Savior||The song should be entitled "I Want To Fall In Love With You" because those lyrics are the most common but there is no mention of the title anywhere in the song. - Isac|
|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.|
