* No, "Epic" ([[RefrainFromAssuming not "You Want It All"]]) is not by the Music/RedHotChiliPeppers. It's by Music/FaithNoMore. For starters, Mike Patton doesn't sound ''that'' much like Anthony Kiedis. Though he may be trying, and the song is kind of a parody of them (the video sure as hell is), so we can see where you would make that mistake.
* Many people misattribute the Boney M's song "El Lute" to Music/{{ABBA}}, because of its (probably intentional) similarity to "Fernando" and "Chiquitita".

* No, "Eye of the Tiger" is not by Music/{{Journey}}. It is by Survivor. People have made this mistake because Survivor's lead singer Dave Bickler sounds a lot like Steve Perry.

* No, "I Knew You Were Trouble" (pictured above) is not by Music/{{Lostprophets}}. It's by Music/TaylorSwift.[[note]]This misattribution was the result of a troll who released "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift back onto Spotify. Except the cover attributed it to Lostprophets, who by that time had broken up due to its lead singer Ian Watkins being outed as a pedophile, and the cover of the song featuring a snapshot of the Canadian cartoon ''WesternAnimation/ScaredySquirrel'', bizarrely enough. In fact, on this very wiki, pages were constantly edited to attribute the song to Lostprophets.[[/note]] Later, Swift's song "Bad Blood" would begin to be misattributed to Watkins as a solo artist (he has never even had a solo career).

* Don't believe P2P networks when they tell you that "The Lady In Red" was done by Music/PhilCollins. It's a Chris de Burgh song. And no, Collins never covered it. Stevie Wonder never sang it either, you're thinking of "Woman in Red".

* "Stuck in the Middle With You" is not by Music/BobDylan. It's by Stealers Wheel, though Joe Egan's vocal performance borrows from Dylan's style. (Music/GerryRafferty did not sing this song, but he was a member of Stealers Wheel and co-wrote the song.)\
