Top Ten Metal Songs With Misheard LyricsMishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase is a result of near-homophony, in a way that gives it a new meaning. The listener, being unable to clearly hear a lyric, substitutes words that sound similar, and make some kind of sense.
Metal genre is the most prolific source of misheard lyrics for obvious reasons - songs are fast, instruments are loud and words in the lyrics are usually too abstract.

As I watch Jethro Tull!
Haha, that's super cool. Thanks.
Actual lyric - "As I watch death unfold". - Metal_Treasure
This is awesome: "As I watch Jethro Tull" instead of the actual lyric "As I watch death unfold".
I love this one because in the 1989 Grammy Awards, Metallica lost out to Jethro Tull and this award was named "Grammy's biggest upset". Why? Because nobody (except the Grammys) considered Jethro Tull to be part of the hard rock or heavy metal genre.
In the early 90s, when Metallica won a Grammy, Lars Ulrich of Metallica said "We wanna thank Jethro Tull for not putting out an album this year". LOL. - Metal_Treasure
