* There's a running joke in ''Literature/GoodOmens'' about how all cassette tapes left in cars will eventually metamorphose into tapes of "The Greatest Hits of Queen". Crowley listens to the song "Radio Ga Ga", hearing the lyrics "''All we need is Radio Ga Ga''". It's actually "''All we'' hear ''is Radio Ga Ga.''" Another time, he wonders who Moey and Chandon are. [[note]] The lyrics are "''She keeps some Moët & Chandon in her pretty cabinet''".

* The [[GratuitousFrench French]] line "''Tellement loin de ce monde"''[[note]]''Long away from this world''[[/note]] in "Ff" by the Swedish rock band Music/{{Kent}} was misunderstood ''a lot''by Swedes. A few examples what people heard are "Demoner som gror"[[note]]''Demons who grow''[[/note]], "En blåval i bur"[[note]]''A blue whale in a cage''[[/note]], "Där moln löser mord"[[note]]''Where clouds break murder cases''[[/note]] and "Det ordnar sig nog"[[note]]''Things will straighten out.''[[/note]].

Then there's this gem from [[VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Super Smash Brothers 4]]. Try picking Fox as a fighter and don't tell me you didn't hear "FUCKS!"

* Speaking of Video Game Music: ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhoCf7Kq8Bc Angels of Death (Space Marine Theme)]]'' from ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar II'' has lyrics that are mish-mash of High Latin, Greek and Old Norse, so this is expected. The line "[[CanisLatinicus Ave - ni mach fordena]]" is all-but completely misheard as the (equally fitting) "For then we march for Terra".

* In one ''{{Partiallyclips}}'' comic, a musician realizes (mid-performance) that the lyrics to ''[[TheBeatles Eleanor Rigby]]'' isn't "Picks up her eyes", which ruins his interpretation that Eleanor is some kind of alien. This completely ruins his appreciation of the song.

** To make this even more amusing, because of this trope there was a parody version of Dirty Deeds done by Bob Rivers that was actually called [[BestialityIsDepraved "Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep"]], and had some of instruments replaced with farm animal sounds. The lyrics were quite disturbing. The song is VERY VERY frequently [[MisattributedSong attributed to]] WeirdAl.
