Top 10 Songs with Bad Grammar in the Title


The Top Ten

1 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

My favorite song by the Stones - Metal_Treasure

2 Smokin' In The Boy's Room - Brownsville Station

"Boys Room" is also incorrect. If one is to be a stickler for proper grammar, that adjectival possessive pronoun needs be used.

This song title is known for its apostrophe issue (Boy's). Boys' Room or Boys Room would be correct (the song is about school).
I think the song is great though - a very catchy rock tune.
LOL, the autocorrect service of both TTT and iTunes corrected the title so there's no song sample for the original song title, i.e. for the correct title which is with wrong grammar.
Wiki also corrected the title but if you see the original cover art of the single (1973) it is "Smokin' in the Boy's Room". It's the same on their original release of the album Yeah! (1973).
Mötley Crüe covered it in 1985 on their album Theatre of Pain but on wiki the title is corrected - "Smokin' in the Boys Room". - Metal_Treasure

3 Any Fule Kno That - Deep Purple Any Fule Kno That - Deep Purple

I absolutely love this song - one of the many underrated Deep Purple songs (1998) - Metal_Treasure

4 Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers

It's incorrect only if there really IS no sunshine when she's gone. Could always be under an extended high pressure system, as opposed to the high Arctic in Winter.

5 Since You Been Gone - Rainbow
6 It Don't Matter to Me - Bread
7 Ain't No Other Man - Christina Aguilera
8 A Bitch Iz a Bitch - N.W.A.
9 Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Diana Ross
10 Bludsucker - Deep Purple

This is a 1998 re-record of their legendary song Bloodsucker of 1970 (it was with correct spelling in 1970) - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 We a Famly - The Flaming Lips ft Miley Cyrus

(a song of 2017).
Please don't correct the title because THIS is the correct title! - Metal_Treasure

12 Smokin' in the Boys Room - Motley Crue

This is a Brownsville Station cover, the original song with the apostrophe issue (Boy's). I thought Boys Room was correct but a visitor said it wasn't correct either. So I added this title, too.
But I am no Grammar expert at all and I am not sure. - Metal_Treasure

13 The Way I Are - Timbaland
14 She Don't Have to Know - John Legend
15 Just Four - Nickelback

"I want to rip his heart out just four hurting you? "
It's not supposed to be spelled like the number 4. Thankfully they corrected this in the song's re-release on 'Silver Side Up'. - SuperSonic17

16 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

Where's the bad grammar in this song? Is it Because it starts with And or was it added just for spite Hmm... I'd go for the later. - christangrant

17 Was Kuckst Du - Kollegah

Literally "What Look You? ", or more accurately "What You Look? ".
What he means is "Kuckst du mich an? " ("Are You Looking At Me? ") or "Was kuckst du mich an? " ("Why are you looking at me? ") in a "Taxi Driver" kind of way. This is slang that everybody uses, so don't worry, Kollegah speaks a very advanced level of German. - Martin_Canine

18 Fight'til Dying - Sunrise Avenue

Much like Sunrise Avenue who are Finnish I am not a native speaker of English, but this sounds completely wrong to me. Isn't it "Fight 'Til We Die" or "Fight Until Death"? - Martin_Canine
