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.
