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
|'Weird Al' Yankovic||Truck Drivin' Song||An oft repeated line is "I'm drivin' a truck, drivin' a truck." In some lines "big ol' " is inserted before the second occurrence of "truck". But the title "Truck Drivin' Song" never occurs in the lyrics. - Carmen Nunki|

|10 Years||11:00 AM (Daydreamer)||One lyrics does mention a "daydreamer's nightmare," but the main title is never used. The chorus: "Brace yourself and give into the moment/ You've got nothing to lose/So what is your excuse?/Save yourself, your dying in slow motion/You got nothing to lose/So what's your excuse?" - Jonathan S.|
|10,000 Maniacs||You Happy Puppet||Even though it says "YOU Happy Puppet" in the title, Natalie Merchant says "*A* happy puppet." - Isac|
|10,000 Maniacs||Candy Everybody Wants||Although Natalie Merchant repeats 'candy' and the phrase, 'Give 'em what they want' several times during the song, the whole title is nowhere to be seen. - Vivian Advance|
|10cc||Dreadlock Holiday||I don't like reggae, I love it - DonaldG|

|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|
|4 Non Blondes||What's Up?||The singer never asks "What's up?" Instead, she asks "What's going on?" - Brian Kelly|
|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|
|666||Apocalypse||Apocalypse is not in the lyrics - weirdkid106|
|The 88||At Least It Was Here||I can't count the reasons I should stay./One by one, they all just fade away. (Note: Theme song from "Community".) - Brian Kelly|
