* Many of the bands in the 90's alternative scene had lead singers who wouldn't fully enunciate while singing. Kurt Cobain of Music/{{Nirvana}} is the most famous and parodied for this. Eddie Vedder and Music/{{Pearl Jam}} take this style to its logical conclusion - there are multiple songs in their catalog where both the official lyric and the Mondegreen make perfect sense - for example "Young girl, violins" is the official line for "Daughter's" second line, but it sounds like "Young girl, violence" in practice, and since the song is about child abuse it still fits.

** "Kokomo", at the end of the second chorus, you hear the background vocals sing what sounds like "To mark. To neek. To pounds of rotten steak." It's "To Martinique, that Montserrat mystique".

*** One CutawayGag showed Peter recording an album of Christmas songs while not knowing the lyrics. This resulted in such gems as him singing "I brought these gifts for you, [[AssShove they're up in my bum}..." to the tune of "The Little Drummer Boy".

* Creator/PeterKay has an entire routine built around this sort of thing, such as suggesting Music/MichaelJackson is assuring his listener in "You Are Not Alone" that "your burgers are the best" (it's "your burdens I will bear") or that Music/{{Duffy}} is "begging you for birdseed" ("mercy"). Funniest of all, in the song "Drive" by Music/TheCars, the singer does a little vocal styling right before the chorus that really does sound like he's saying "pork pie": "Can't go on, thinkin...nothin's wrong...pork pie..." Once you hear it, you can't unhear it.

* Music/IggyAzalea is gonna love ya "like a black little baby", according to what it sounds like she's saying in "Black Widow".

** The episode ''O Brother, Where Bart Thou?'' had Bart dreaming about different famous brothers, including the [[Series/TheSmothersBrothersComedyHour Smothers Brothers]]. The closing credits featured a banter between them in which one brother says "Take it Tom" which is misheard as "Take it Naked Bacon". Homer ends up chiming in that he too heard "Take it Naked Bacon".
---> But folk singers never say "Take it Naked Bacon".

* Electric Light Orchestra's "Don't Bring Me Down" is referenced in VH-1's "I Love The 70s Volume 2." The made up word, groose is often mistaken for Bruce.

* "Feels" by Music/CalvinHarris features Music/KatyPerry during the chorus, at which point her line "Don't be afraid to catch '''feels'''" and variations thereof are ''very'' easy to mishear as "Don't be afraid to catch '''fish'''" (which, somewhat amusingly, still works as a dating metaphor).

''VideoGame/SonicAdventure''
The ending theme of Sonic's story ''It Doesn't Matter'' has a line where the singer says "And there's no way I will run away from all of my frights" where most fans misinterpret the line as "there is no way I'll run away from all of my pride" ''VideoGame/StreetFighterII'': Due to sound hardware and other factors, [[CallingYourAttacks called out attacks]] may be misinterpreted. "Spinning Bird Kick" may sound like "Pizza Kick". "Tatsumaki Senpukyaku" may sound like "[=[something]=] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SL_x1rRg7mM pound cake]]."
