Top Ten Misunderstood Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Wake Me Up When September Ends - Green Day

We are in that season of the year when stupid people start saying "Almost time to wake up that Green Day dude".
Truth is that the song is inspired by Billie Joe's father who died in this month when he was just a kid. When he knew this he ran to his bedroom and told her mom to wake him up when september ends. And that's the story, folks.

I used to think this was just about a failed relationship. I was wrong. - PositronWildhawk

27Ghosts N' Stuff - Deadmau5

It's not about drugs, like people on them suggest, it's more about fitting in and learning from the mistake of taking them. - PositronWildhawk

28We Are All Made of Stars - Moby

This song was met with mixed reactions as it came out, and that'as because people misunderstood it. It's not just saying "we can achieve anything because everyone else can", it's really reflecting on how lucky we are to have our lives, spanning from our beginnings. It has a large number of hidden meanings. - PositronWildhawk

29Stan - Eminem
30Angel of Death - Slayer
31Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

A lot of people think this song is about drugs but it's really about a time in the song writers life when he was a child and had a fever. - Sabbath

32Tiny Dancer - Elton John
33I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry
34Ur So Gay - Katy Perry
35Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin
36I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

Simply written to confuse people who were trying to read into Beatles songs. Nothing profound. - PetSounds

37Surf's Up - The Beach Boys
38Homeward Bound - Simon and Garfunkel

A lot of people interpret this as being about Vietnam, when in reality Paul Simon wrote it about returning to his girlfriend, Kathy Chitty. - PetSounds

39Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater
40Hooker With a Penis - Tool
