** Similarly, the line "hangin' in a chow line" from the ''Series/GoodTimes'' theme song, described by [[Series/ChappellesShow Dave Chappelle]] as "the most disputed lyric of all the Good Times lyrics" during a quiz on his show in which the closest any of the contestants could come to remembering it was "hangin' in a jury."

** Similarly, the line "hangin' after "Scratchin' and survivin'--Good Times!" in a chow line" from the ''Series/GoodTimes'' theme song, described by [[Series/ChappellesShow Dave Chappelle]] as "the most disputed lyric of all the Good Times lyrics" during a quiz on his show in which the closest any of the contestants could come to remembering it was "hangin' in a jury."" Chappelle gave the correct answer as "Hangin' in a chow line", but when asked about it in an interview, the song's composers (Alan & Marilyn Bergman) said that it's actually "Hangin' in and jivin' ".

Added DiffLines:

* Billie Joe's singing on Music/GreenDay albums can be very difficult to understand at times, especially on the earlier albums. When they performed [[DrugsAreBad "Geek Stink Breath"]] on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', they [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar got away with saying "shit"]] because [[TheUnintelligible nobody understood what Billie Joe was saying]].

* "One Day" by HavalinaRailCo is so bad that even the band doesn't know the lyrics--the album liner notes read: "We only know the chorus... Special Havalina prize if you can figure out the rest of the lyrics and hand deliver them to Mark Cole." Reportedly, the prize was never claimed.

* Parov Stelar's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moyE-ppadZ4 The Mojo Radio Gang]]" has only one line, repeated over and over, but beyond the words "I gotta..." (or maybe "I got a") it's anyone's guess what the heck is it supposed to be.

Added DiffLines:

*Music/Sum41 is this with their short, fast songs. The most egregious example is 'Never Wake Up', in which the only intelligible line is the TitleDrop.
** Another example is the bridge from 'Motivation', in which Deryck sings a mouthful of words at an [[MotorMouth insane speed,]] which ends up sounding like "LeaLeavingfriendsjustbecomeatrendjanamsnsndnIcan'tpretend, afraidofbeingthisway, it'snotthrsamebutwho'stoblameforallthe STUPID THINGS I NEVER SAID!" Have fun singing that on VideoGame/GuitarHero.

Added DiffLines:

* Almost every song by Music/TheClash.
* Music/AliceCooper's song "Serious" is nearly incomprehensible until just before the chorus. Something, something, blah blah blah, "I took that serious."

* The cover version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEt8xJ_m4QM "Hot Limit"]] by John Desire, which can be found in ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution 5th Mix''. It was a Japanese song by T.M.Revolution, translated into English and sung by an Italian band trying to sound like they're American.
