Don't you hate when it happens? What are some that just make you MAD. I hate when people spell artist's names wrong, especially when they're saying they do or don't like them. It makes you wonder.

A few that come to mind are Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the song "The Ballad of Curtis Loew"

Yeah, I make mistakes sometimes with Zeppelin.
I get easily confused with bands with similar sounding names, (i.e. Fall Out Boy and Fall Of Troy).
#4
how about Yngwie Malmsteen, or Megadeth. Nobody that I know can spell Megadeth right, even if they say they are their biggest fan because they heard Hangar 18 on GH2. They can't spell Hangar right either.

Too tired and lazy to bother with a sig, Sorry.

I hate when people drop parts of bands names like: Fall of Troy, when it is THE Fall of Troy, same with The Decemberists. David Gilmour is another one that annoys me when spelled wrong. Also when people use the wrong letter for names like the say Curt instead of Kurt, **** like that.

similar sort of thing, but not many people say Alexisonfire right. They may not be that famous, but if your gonna pretend to like them, at least know how to say their name (alexis on fire)

another person to call them alex is on fire should be set on. fitting punishment lol

As already mentioned by "horazonblade", something that really pisses me off is the improper renaming of songs on p2p sharing programs.

I'm thinking:

"Guns N' Roses - Sex, Drugs and Rock n' Roll"
when the real song is actually
"Poison - The War on Drugs"

Or "Nirvana - Half the Man I Used to be"
when the real song is actually
"Stone Temple Pilots - Creep".

Can anybody think of any others?

^ I always thought it was Alex IS on Fire. Ah well I don't like them anyway and it is their fault for having a confusing name. What amazes me is people spell names like Jimi Hendrix, Lynyrd Skynyrd wrong but remember to put the exclamation mark after panic in Panic! at the disco.

Oh and 'Block Party' REALLY ANNOYS ME!

EDIT: Oh and even though I don't like then the song people call 'Time of Your Life' by Green Day is actually called Good Riddance. Alhough that's not really a spelling error.

No, the name of the song is Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life). So either title will do. Like Welcome Home (Sanitarium), If You Want Blood (You've Got It) or Beelzeboss (The Final Countdown).
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
