Top 10 Funniest Misheard Lyrics From Metal SongsMisheard song lyrics are called mondegreen - it's a result of near-homophony that gives it a new meaning, often funny.
The Top Ten
Nice image, I bet that what happens when james hetfield orders fast food
Sound's like an overly aggressive order at the McDonald's drive thru
Haha, I love this one! Gimme food, Gimme fries! Gimme salad on the side!
Actual Lyric: Give me fuel, give me fire, give me that which I desire.
I sing this text for years. I donť know right text.
Master! Apprentice! Heartborne! 7th Seeker!
At first I thought it was that. I also thought the end of holy wars was "mercy you know they'll take my balls away"
And until reading the actual lyric I thought it was "you try to take his boss"
Lol, I thought this was the actual lyrics.
You try to take its pulse.
I heard it and then couldn't unhear it
Holy crap, this is funny
Actual: Masquerade, Masquerade, Grab Your Mask and Don't Be Late
I can't unhear it...
Actual Lyric: Fear of the Dark
But the chorus with misheard lyrics completely makes sense:
"Fear of the duck, fear of the duck
I have a constant fear that something's always near
Fear of the duck, fear of the duck
I have a phobia that someone's always there"
PsychoStick did a song based on this called"Quack kills". Pretty funny from a great band
No, it's fear of the duck
I don't know if it was you, Metal Treasure, or someone else that added the photo, but that is one of the funniest things I've seen on the site in a while!
Thanks. It was me who added this image. You can see more on my list Funniest Metal Music-Related Images. Have fun!
All I have to say is thank you. Brilliant.
Powder in your ears much?
I can't unhear that now
"Brick in the lawn" is also a popular version. I added it to this list, too
B.O. - body odor. Actual lyric: I've gone beyond to seek the truth
Actual Lyric: Sail across the sea of lights
Funnier than the gimme food one!
Despite being one of my favorite songs of all time, these misheard lyrics are hilarious! I wonder who thought of that and I wonder if that spawned any memes.
McDonalds: What do you want on your burger?
James Hetfield: Mustard! Mustard!
Actual Lyric: Come crawling faster, obey your master! Master!
This is what James Hetfield asks for on his burger.
Our light induced, image of truth, filtered blank of its substance.
This lyric hurts my mind of being misheard like that.Wax in your ears much or powder?
Actual lyrics, I’m a murderer, wash me clean!
Ooh, yeah...*squirts hand sanitizer*
Catch dozens, if you want
My name's Tony, I've got some bacon
Torrent lies from the pain
Regulate and watch me Mike soon
Only worth of the law
Seeking watches, oh Albus
Spicy salt fluids me
try to escape, but death's on my hand
Lies from the laboratory exist
Her I come, salmon's done
The hell will bewitch you
We do know herds to the sky
And listen to for steel
Mindless tyranny, forgotten victims.
This ruined the song for me, but it’s still funny
I love FullMoon by the way. I'm definitely going to listen to some more Sonata Arctica.
Actual lyric: He's not a man anymore. She sees the change in him
Disturbed are NOT exactly a metal band
It's hard rock, guys. Chill out
Disturbed is NOT metal...
OH MY GOD WHY DOES EVERYONE SAY DISTURBED IS NOT HEAVY METAL! LISTEN TO THEIR SONG PRAYER AND THEN YOULL CHANGE YOU MIND!
Actual Lyric: Thought disorder.
Actual lyric: As I watch death unfold.
(it's really funny because in the 1989 Grammy Awards, Metallica lost out to Jethro Tull in the category hard rock and heavy metal, although Jethro Tull are neither metal nor hard rock, LOL.
Life down there is just a strange illusion
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Harold be Thy name
Actual lyric: Watch me fading, I'm losing, all my instincts falling into darkness
How is it possible to mishear 2000s LaBrie?
I just listened to that. I heard "Next thing you know, they'll take my dolls away"..
This is also funny and maybe even funnier than "dogs", in the context of thrash metal, haha, dolls. Dave Mustaine is crying for his dolls!
Actual lyric: Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away.
I truly thought that was the lyric for some time
"Tragedienne of heavens / Watching the eyes of the night"
I don't think this song is metal and it shouldn't be on this list
Actual lyric: Burning hard, loose and clean! I have no Idea why I thought of that RIGHT when I was just listening to this song. I added this by the way.
Woah, this increased significantly. Should I make a meme about this?
Turn on beyond the bone!
I don't know if I have bad hearing or am just plain foolish, but the first time I heard it, I genuinely thought he was saying "turn off the garden gnomes". Weird.
Seems this song has no single line that hasn't been misheard! Such a great song for this particular list, LOL.
When I heard Fuel for the first time, I heard “burning hard, seducing queen” instead of “burning hard, loose and clean”.
Wait, so you're saying these aren't the actual lyrics?
Actual lyric: Tighten the tourniquent around your neck
Actual lyric: Bring me your daughter to the slaughter
