20 Most Misquoted Rocks Songs Of All Time – Part 1
You know, it’s one of those times when you think you got the correct lyrics to your ‘favorite’ song then you hear someone else sing it and you’re like, “Have I been singing the wrong words the entire time?!” Yeah, it’s a bummer. But you’d be surprised how many times that happened to other people!
P.S. You might wanna check how many of these you got correctly.
20. Paradise City by Guns ‘n Roses
Wrong: “Take me down to a very nice city”
Correct: “Take me down to the Paradise City.”
Axl’s gonna walk out when he hears you.
19. Rock the Casbah by The Clash
Wrong: “The sheep don’t like it, rockin’ the cat box”
Correct: “Shareef don’t like it, rock the Casbah”
LEAVE THE CAT BOX ALONE.
18. Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival
Wrong:“There’s a bathroom on the right”
Correct: “There’s a bad moon on the rise.”
To be fair, it does sound almost the same.
17. Pleasant Valley Sunday by The Monkees
Wrong: “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday, here in status in Boull…”
Correct: “Another Pleasant Valley Sunday, here in status symbol land.”
Status in Boull?! That doesn’t make any sense.
16. Suffragette City by David Bowie
Wrong: “This mellow fat chick just put my spine out of place”
Correct: “This mellow thighed chick just put my spine out of place..”
I have no words.
15. Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana
Wrong: “Here we are now, in containers”
Correct: “Here we are now, entertain us”
Sorry, I can’t take out the image of a headbanging Dave Grohl inside a container out of my head.
14. Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin
Wrong: “There’s a wino down the road”
Correct: “And as we wind on down the road”
Robert Plant and his fabulous hair are not impressed.
13. Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix
Wrong: “Excuse me while I kiss this guy”
Correct: “Excuse me while I kiss the sky”
Well I sang it like this once SO….
12. More than a Woman by Bee Gees
Wrong: “Bald headed woman”
Correct: “More than a woman”
You should see my WTH face right now.
11. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by the Beatles
Wrong: “Lucy’s in a fight, with Linus”
Correct: “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”
For all you know, Linus could be an ex.
10. Two Tickets to Paradise by Eddie Money
Wrong: “I’ve got two chickens to paralyze”
Correct: “I’ve got two tickets to paradise”
What did the chicken ever do to you?!
9. Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard
Wrong: “Pour some shook-up Ramen”
Correct: “Pour some sugar on me”
If you could add more eggs, please. And maybe some spring onions and pork.
8. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly
Wrong: “In a glob of Velveeta, honey”
Correct: “In-A-Gadda Da Vida”
This is acceptable. I feel you.
7. Desperado by The Eagles
Wrong: “You’ve been outright offensive, for so long now”
Correct: “You’ve been out riding fences for so long now”
The misquoted one sounds like a break-up text.
6. Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac
Wrong: “Grow your own weed”
Correct: Go your own way”
You’re gonna need a license, TBH.
5. I Want To Hold Your Hand by The Beatles
Wrong: “I get high, I get high”
Correct: “I can’t hide, I can’t hide”
Don’t worry, even Bob Dylan misheard it like that too.
4. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Wrong: “Saving his life from this warm sausage tea”
Correct: “Spare him his life from this monstrosity”
Sausage and tea should not even be in the same sentence.
3. Beast of Burden by The Rolling Stones
Wrong: “I’ll never leave your pizza burnin’”
Correct: “I’ll never be your beast of burden”
There’s a special place in hell for people who leave their pizza burning. Even Keith Richards would agree.
2. Sound and Vision by David Bowie
Wrong: “Don’t you wonder sometimes about salmon fishing?”
Correct: “Don’t you wonder sometimes about sound and vision?”
Who needs sound when you have salmon?
1. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap by AC/DC
Wrong: “Dirty deeds and they’re done with sheep”
Correct: “Dirty deeds done dirt cheap”
Why are innocent animals always included?
