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.
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.
Ha! I bet James probably orders this at fast food restaurants!
Gimme fuel, gimme fire! Gimme me double Charizard!
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"
You try to take its pulse.
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
I have a constant fear a "quack" is always near.
Holy crap, this is funny
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!
I would definitely want Rob Halford as a neighbour then.
All I have to say is thank you. Brilliant.
Powder in your ears much?
The dark truth you wouldn't want to know about Santa Claus.
Funnier than the gimme food one!
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?
This one's a good 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.
James is always there for you when you're having hot dogs and there's no mustard.
McDonalds: What do you want on your burger?
James Hetfield: Mustard! Mustard!
Actual Lyric: Come crawling faster, obey your master! Master!
It's hard rock, guys. Chill out
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.
James is a Jethro Tull fan?
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.
I love FullMoon by the way. I'm definitely going to listen to some more Sonata Arctica.
Life down there is just a strange illusion
Yeah, yeah, yeah,
Harold be Thy name
How is it possible to mishear 2000s LaBrie?
Actual lyric: Watch me fading, I'm losing, all my instincts falling into darkness
I just listened to that. I heard "Next thing you know, they'll take my dolls away"..
Didn't know Megadeth were so passionate about the animal control.
Actual lyric: Next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away.
"Tragedienne of heavens / Watching the eyes of the night"
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.
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?
