Ever hear a song and find out they're saying something COMPLETELY different than what you initially heard?
A recent example of mine is taking Beyonce's newish song with the lyrics 'All the single ladies' as 'Ah, my jiggle legs!'

Latter was more amusing.

i've always found pop to be harder to play than metal... especially shred metal... it's just really fast tremolo picking and the occasional palm mute... and the only chords you have to worry about are power chords...

My brother thought the lyrics from the AC/DC song were...

In Angel of Death by Slayer, I always thought it said, "Shallow glimpse of your life", but it actually said "Showers that cleanse you of your life"

Beginning of Fermented Offal Discharge, thought it said, "Coughing in my stool, tastes like sideways", but it said "The casket is exhumed, turfs piled beside the grave".

I heard Smells Like Teen Spirit as:

With the lights out
It's less dangerous
Here we are now
In containers

I feel stupid
And it's dangerous
Here we are now
In containers

Before i read the lyrics book, i thought that the line "forcing her own blood down" in the song "Entrance of the conflagration" by Trivium (inb4 shitty band etc.) was "telling her puss to swallow a crown".

my mind doesn't like me

I thought "I got me some pay today" even though he has plainly never worked a day in his life

The actual line is "I got me some bathing apes" which is a brand of shoes and a terrible rhyme to boot

Not that good but the other day I thought the lyric "It's pulling you under" in Composure - August Burns Red was:

"It's pulling your wonton" for some reason.

I thought Dylan sang "And I hope that you die, and your death will come soon".


Turns out he did.

There goes my hero
watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
Hes old and hairy
Scar tissue that I wish you saw
Sarcastic mister know it all
Close your eyes and I'll kiss you cause
With the birds I'll share
This lonely view

*Discreet hi-five*

August Burns Red are probably the best hardcore band out there right now.

I downloaded Messengers two weeks ago and have not stopped listening to it, and usually I hate that sort of music. I can't believe how in love with them I am.
