We’ve all done it — pretended to know a song, when really we’re all just noobs with a collection of misheard lyrics. Pleated Jeans recently made an epic compilation of songs with lyrics that are brutally misheard. I may or may not be guilty for some of those Blink 182 failures.
According to the video, these are some commonly misheard lyrics:
“I’ve left some brains down in Africa,” – Toto’s “Africa”
“With the lights out, sex is dangerous. Here we are now in containers,” – Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
“Padded bra! Padded br-a-a,” – Van Halen’s “Panama”
“You keep making me reek, yeah, frozen in Cadbury,” – One Direction’s “One Thing”
“Come on Barbie, let’s go potty,” – Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”
Watch the compilation here:
The song, titled ‘How R U Doin?’ is actually really catchy. It sort of rips off ‘Like a G6,’ but it’s good nonetheless. I’m really feeling the song and video, something I never thought I would say about them. Check it out below for a blast from the past!
