* The Similou's ''All This Love'' inspired a mini fad on YTMND about the famous communist hero, [[http://rainbowstalin2.ytmnd.com/ Rainbow Stalin.]]]] The actual lyric was "rainbow ''styling''", apparently referring to the wearing of colorful clothing ("In your tank top, rainbow styling")

Added DiffLines:
* Bobby Hart caught the very end of [[Music/TheBeatles "Paperback Writer"]] on the radio and somehow heard "take the last train" instead of the TitleDrop. Once he learned that wasn't the actual lyric, he and Tommy Boyce wrote "Last Train To Clarksville" for Music/TheMonkees.

* The main theme of ''VideoGame/{{Super Smash Brothers Brawl}}'' is constantly a victim of this. The words aren't even in English, so fans have fun interpreting English lyrics.

Sometimes caused by [[ElmuhFuddSyndwome bad diction]], or [[LyricalShoehorn bizarre]] [[WordSaladLyrics lyrics]]. For a more in-depth look at the history of mondegreens and how they're used in various media, please see [[Analysis/{{Mondegreen}} the Analysis Page.]] See also LadyMondegreen, which is about something similar happening with character names in other works. Contrast {{Malaproper}} which is a character who mixes up words on a regular basis, and BeamMeUpScotty which is for when the misheard line becomes more famous than the original. A GagSub for a music video will probably be filled with mondegreens (and mostly works best if [[GratuitousForeignLanguage original and sub language are different]]...unless the language is homophone-rich). See also SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein, where people understand part of the song but struggle to make up actual words from the rest.

* In''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' Mr. Krabs tries to ask Mrs. Puff on a date only to become unbearably nervous and start speaking gibberish. In an effort to help, SpongeBob tries to translate his gibberish and comes up with several horrifying answers before finally getting it right. The answers include "He says he'd like to hit you with a rake." and "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar try and guess your weight!"]]
