Top Ten Songs With Weird Lyrics That We Love

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

The most beautiful thing about this song is it brings people together. Even though we don't know what it means, we are still brought together by it. The mystery doesn't intrigue me; I don't want to know what the song means. I love it enough already.

With this being one of the the most famous songs ever written, and the fact that almost no one can agree what the song really means, it is one of the strangest, yet most amazing songs ever written. That's without mentioning Eddie Mercury's voice and Brian May's expert guitar solos on his self made "Red Special"made in his garage

Yes, have to bow down to Queen on this song. So fun to sing and listen to but makes absolutely no sense. Musically it rocks. The lyrics are fun to learn and sing.

Never heard of it, but I think I'll listen to it!

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Very weird, but the song is awesome nevertheless. Also the way Kurt sings it makes it better.

Definitely should be #1. Just listen to the lyrics! 'With the lights out, it's less Dangerous. Here we are now, entertain us. I feel stupid, and contagious. Here we are now, entertain us. ' Another reason is that not once in the song do they sing "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

I was going to vote for bohemian rhapsody but then I realized that the lyrics aren't that weird, so since were song with weird lyrics that we love, this one from nirvana fits the bill

How do a mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, and some random guy's libido have ANYTHING in common? What the heck is Nirvana singing about? And, honestly, I love this song for some strange reason!

3 'U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer

His dancing is also quite weird that even vanilla ice copied it

Scary

4 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

This song is a beautiful song and undoubtedly is one of the best rock songs of the 2000's and the song meaning is sad it's about people that get judged by the way they die like let's say if someone dies of a drug overdose people will say he/she deserves it because they abused drugs.

It's about domestic abuse... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Awesome song!

I love this song!
It's the first System of a Down song I heard.

5 The Golden Age of Grotesque - Marilyn Manson
6 Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann Band

Okay. Love the song but the lyrics make no sense.

7 Gangnam Style - PSY

Don't know the words, but can't help liking it. I mean, I find it a bit annoying, but have to dance along when I hear it. Is that weird?

It's Korean. enough said.

Translated from Korean, unless you speak the language. Very odd either way.

What do those words even mean?

8 Freakshow On the Dance Floor - The Bar-kays

THIS IS A MUST WATCH VIDEO.

9 Closer - Nine Inch Nails

You can tell by the first verse that this song gets weird, but something about it makes you want to replay it for an hour

Well this song is about sex... Pretty obvious

Closer by The Chainsmokers & Best Person Ever is better - lovefrombadlands

10 American Idiot - Green Day

Love this song!

Not weird,actually, but about the media's control over America.Vote Paranoid Android instead. - Lord28

Green Day’s lyrics suck. They’re emo trash.
Edit: Wow this was a cringe comment.

They're actually not emo, they're punk. Emo would be garbage like Black Veil Brides. - DCfnaf

The Contenders

11 Basket Case - Green Day

This song doesn't have that many weird lyrics, but it's still great.

Great song! Green Day for days!

12 Deepthroat - Cupcakke
13 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold

Grr! I didn't think I'd see this here. I already voted for Bohemian Rhapsody. ):
As much as I love Bohemian Rhapsody and ALL things Freddie Mercury, this is my favorite song, and even when I put bias aside, I still think it has weird lyrics and love it for that reason. I mean, just listen to these:
"Because I really always knew that my little crime would be cold - that's why I got a heater for your thighs."
Everything else in the song is amazing, too. If you were to hear different segments of it at different times, you wouldn't be able to tell they were from the same song. For example, the chorus sounds NOTHING like the verse (the verses sound like something out of a Tim Burton movie! ). In this sense, it reminds me of Bohemian Rhapsody. And the vocals from M Shadows and the Rev are incredibly expressive!
Please do not be turned off by the rather graphic content in the song. When you look past all the grossness and view the song as a whole, it has a beautiful message. ...more

This song is... Crazy
The Song changes tune about 3-5 times different sounds in it
There some soft & then Hard in it then just sadistic it's weird & the lyrics are too!

Love A7x... A little piece of heaven is the first song from a7x I've heard.. And I loved it so much... It also has a great massage... A7x fo_rev_er,...,...

Yes

14 Don't Stop Me Now - Queen

I'm a sex machine ready to reload! - ethanmeinster

200 degrees, that's why they call me Mr Farenheit! - lovefrombadlands

15 Just the Same Way - Journey

You Shouldn't Be Holding on To Him Girl
Just Like Just Like You Want to Do
Just love him squeeze him girl

16 Bullet With Butterfly Wings - Smashing Pumpkins
17 Paranoid Android - Radiohead

One of the greatest songs of all time, just look at the other lists of greatest songs ever.

Pretty much ANYTHING by radiohead should be high on this list.

PARANOID ANDROID is below WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY?! That song doesn't even have weird lyrics and isn't nearly as good as paranoid android!

Bohemian rhapsody of radiohead its place should be just below its daddy

18 The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) - Ylvis

It may be lyrics YOU love but I hate this song. So annoying. - PositronWildhawk

This song has weird lyrics but I hate it. Who can be stupid enough to like this nonsense!?

I really want to punch anyone who makes me listen to this song

What does it mean

19 I Am the Walrus - The Beatles

"Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna" or "Sitting on a corn flake waiting for the van to come" or "Semolina Pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower", all in all, I love this song, even though the lyrics make no absolute sense. - SlimVeggie

The story of this song, is that John Lennon was upset with everyone over analyzing the Beatles lyrics, so he wrote a song that purposely made no sense, remembering little sayings he'd heard in his life.

This should be #1

-Fun Fact: Part of the song was written during an acid trip and it was meant to confuse people analyzing the Beatles' lyrics

I am the egg man wo I am the egg man wo I am the walrus blatxdhxhdhxhdhhhrdjsjjsjsjdhdh!

20 The End - The Doors

Almost 50 years later, Morrison's lyrics about his mother are pretty weird.

Mother, I want to f--- you all night long. It doesn't get any weirder than that

21 Come Together - The Beatles

This song is about the Beatles and how they need to "come together." (See what I did there? ) Each verse describes each member. - ImAKillerQueen

John is talking about Paul and his death in this song and it all makes sense. 'He wear no shoeshine'. On the cover of A. Road, Paul is barefoot. 'Hair down to his knees'. After someone dies, their hair still grows for a while

More than 40 years later, and still no one has any idea what a "walrus gumboot" is anyway.

I like the Michael Jackson version better! - lizard302

22 One Week - Barenaked Ladies

Catchy, weird, awesome! It's very strange, and it makes me think, what the hell, but it's awesome and I never tire of it! But I don't think it's the best Barenaked Ladies song, and definitely not the best music video. That's Falling For the First Time; an awesome song in every way!

It's a great song, with great lyrics, which are very odd, but awesome! - PositronWildhawk

Chicopee China the Chinese chicken :D

23 Every Breath You Take - The Police
24 Dragula - Rob Zombie
25 One Pound Fish - One Pound Fish Man

The tune is too funny but I kinda like hearing it time and time again

26 Falling for the First Time - Barenaked Ladies
27 Undone (The Sweater Song) - Weezer
28 Alive - Pearl Jam

Great song, one of Pearl Jam's best masterpieces. But let's be honest, the lyrics are pretty... Bizarre. Look it up if you don't believe me!

29 Justified and Ancient - The KLF
30 Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO
31 Heart of Glass - Blondie
32 Life on Mars? - David Bowie
33 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - The Beatles
34 Eez-Eh - Kasabian
35 Hey You - Pink Floyd

What... Just understand the album The Wall. This is about Pink (The main character) trying to connect to the outside world, becoming more and more desperate to try and contact someone outside the wall. - higgsboson2142

Not that weird compared to a lot of other Floyd stuff

36 Stand - R.E.M.

I don't understand what it's meaning, but I really enjoy music every time I hear it

Seriously, this song means nothing...but I LOVE IT!

37 Pumped Up Kicks - Foster the People

This song is about a damn school shooting

When I first listened to it I didn't get it but now I got it when I seen the video... Y does it have to be like that...

38 Mein Teil - Rammstein

This should be at top 10 man...
A man eating his friends "parts" actually!
And who knows, maybe he started eating from a really weird place :D!

39 Longview - Green Day

It's literally about masterbating.

I love this song! And yes, the lyrics are... unnerving.

40 Vicinity of Obscenity - System of a Down

Love the song but seriously... What the!

I don't understand! Good song though

Now that's really weird

Banana Banana Banana Banana Terracotta Banana Terracotta Terracotta Pie!

41 Word Up - Cameo

He sucks

42 Roar - Katy Perry

There is pretty weird lyrics but the beat is good and the singing is good. Enough said.

43 I Wanna Be Sedated - The Ramones
44 Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
45 Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
46 Timothy - The Buoys

Three men are trapped in a mine cave in.
Two of them kill and eat their friend to survive.

47 Loser - Beck

Beefcake pantyhose, cocaine nose-job, butane in my veins, plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables... These are some of my favorite lyrics, especially the first two! You knew from before the lyrics even started that this song was gonna be something out of left field, but nobody could have predicted just how far out! - theOpinionatedOne

Pretty much every other word in this song should make it a winner.

Slap the Turkey-neck
And it's hanging' from a pigeon wing - higgsboson2142

48 The Great Beyond - R.E.M.
49 Blitzkrieg Bop - The Ramones
50 Flightless Bird, American Mouth - Iron and Wine
