    "excuse me while I kiss this guy"

    *im sorry, but i never once thought that was what hendrix was saying in purple haze. i guess we know what the person who first misheard that line had on the brain...

    "gimmie the beach boys and free my soul...i wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away"

    *what kind of stupid ass really though this was what was being sung?

    "secret...asian man.."

    *sure, ill buy that...there sure are more secret asians that agents out there....right?

    "do the funky lady" (dude looks like a lady)

    *id do her...what about you?

    On my bands demo CD, our singer:" My tension pan done turned off."

    Actual lyrics: "My attention spans done turned off":bawl:


    So I ask him, What the hell is a tension pan and he mumbles something less coherent

    There's a bathroom on the right is what I always hear in bad moon rising by CCR.


    I think I'm the only one who hears this but in Megadeth's "Disintigrators" Dave sings "Anarchy's coming to town, a firey invador" but I always heard "Aunt Auggie's coming to town, a firey invador."


    What's Dave got against his Aunt Auggie?

    Shouldn't that be "Cheap wine and three gay goats"? Either way, I don't think Cold Chisel are known outside Australia.

    REM:- "Lets pee in the corner, lets pee in the spot-light....."

    With Maynard's current lyric record, I don't doubt a lyric on the lines of that is going to be on thier next record.

    "There's a bathroom on the right."

    "I'll never be your pizza burnin'."

    "Bingo Jed had a light on."

    "'Scuse me, while I kiss this guy."

    It's not that I actually think this is what the singers are singing, it's just what I hear them singing.

    Here's one that I've come up with: Whenever I hear "Your Disease" by Saliva, I wonder why that dude wants to deliver pizzas so badly (if you listen to the bridge towards the end, he sings,"Will there ever be any peace for me," but what I hear is, "Will I ever be a pizza man?").

    :D

    Also, for the longest time, I thought Jonsi was saying, "sjálfur kominn um borð, var farinn að byrgast við bæjarlækinn sem hafði þegar deytt svo margar," instead of, "sjálfur kominn um borð, var farinn að berjast við bæjarlækinn sem hafði þegar deytt svo margar."

    :rolleyes: ;)
     
  18. Ah yes, subtle difference there. ;)

    I actually also thought Maynard was reaching out to his rectum. :D
