* "We're Not Gonna Take It" by Music/TwistedSister was also a victim of the MoralGuardians where supposedly a boy was calling his father a 'disgusting slob' who was 'worthless and weak' and then blasting him out of the window. In the video, the FATHER was berating his son (a ShoutOut to the actor's [[TheNeidermeyer previous role]] in ''[[AnimalHouse National Lampoon's Animal House]]''), and his [[ShoutOut SON blasts the father out by playing a loud note on his guitar]]. Nothing really violent there unless you think all those old Bugs Bunny or Popeye cartoons were violent. Then the boy [[EverythingsBetterWithSpinning spins around and turns into frontman Dee Snider]]. The rest of the family (besides the parents) turn into the other band members, and what follows is just a bunch of cartoon-ish hijinks where the father tries to get into the house and subdue Twisted Sister, only to either crash or fall out the window. No blood or anything - pretty tame compared to a lot of violent movies. The song itself isn't about violence at all either, but freedom and enjoying life without others dictating every aspect of it without reason. Focus on the Family, The PMRC and these other conservative groups really needed to do more research before protesting something that they deem wrong or evil. While they're at it, they should probably look up the definition of irony.

** Similarly, many writers give John's death date as late in November (possibly confusing it with JFK's death date of November 22nd). It was December 8th.

** In a case of MisattributedSong, there's a strange misconception in some corners of the Internet, shared by a [[http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Ballroom-Blitz-lyrics-Blue-Oyster-Cult/6F0B4EAD534CAA4648256E6700094C2C surprising number of lyrics archives]], that the BlueOysterCult recorded ''Ballroom Blitz''. The fact that British glam-rockers the ''{{Sweet}}'' recorded this and had the hit single does not stop it being attributed to the BOC. Nor does the fact it was written by another songwriting team [[note]]Chinn and Chapman[[/note]] stop it being credited to Eric Bloom and Donald Roeser. OK, it ''sounds'' like something the BOC might have recorded or at least covered live - but they've never been anywhere near it. Consider the opening lyrics, strange for a band whose members are called Eric, Buck, Allen, Albert and Joey. Mick, Andy and Steve are, in reality, the first names of the Sweet.

** There also seem to be a large number of people who believe that Yankovic's work consists of nothing but straight parodies of popular songs. While this does make up a large chunk of his work, he has never been a parodies-only artist, and in fact, even many of his parodies have parodied musical styles or approaches of some artists, rather than songs themselves. For Example "I'll Sue Ya" is a parody of Music/RageAgainstTheMachine's ''style'' but not on one particular RATM song. Ditto "Germs" being a parody of Music/NineInchNail's style rather than (as people assume) being a direct parody of "Closer" or "Terrible Lie." "Don't Download This Song" is a parody of benefit songs like "We Are The World" and pokes fun at the recent hysteria of people being arrested for even so much as ''listening'' to a pirated song. Also, not all the songs he parodies are modern pop. The most prominent example is "Jurassic Park", which is about the popular film, but is set to the tune of "[=MacArthur=] Park".

* The Partners in Kryme performed a ThemeTuneRap for the first ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' movie. Apparently they were not familiar with the franchise, because their song labeled Raphael as the leader of the Turtles, when everyone who's so much as heard the theme song knows that position is actually Leonardo's.

** Breaking news: Chris Brown has decided to take a page from [[Webcomic/{{Sonichu}} Chris-chan]] and try to regain his fame and attract girls with a special medallion close to his heart. No, it's not an OC, but a Kirby medallion. [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1300633/Chris-Brown-desperately-seeks-attention-pink-cat-necklace.html This is the Daily Mail's article on it]]. Apparently, Kirby is a cat Pokemon. The confusion is slightly understandable to a layperson: Kirby, for all intents and purposes, looks like he could be a Pokemon and is owned by Nintendo. So a connection was made by the dimwitted writers. But a cat? In the medallion, he's holding up his arms, which to a stupid person glancing at the picture, looks like cat ears. Sort of kinda not really.
