* Given that "Despacito" is almost entirely in Spanish, the only words that anyone knows are the title and "this is how we do it in Puerto Rico." Justin Bieber even admitted to not knowing the words.

** It gets better: ''Music/REM -- the folks who wrote the song - - don't know the lyrics, either.'' Singer Michael Stipe admitted this during the band's [[UnpluggedVersion MTV Unplugged]] performance, explaining later that he had to go to fan boards to look up his own lyrics:
-->'''Michael:''' ''(holding up printout)'' We had to get the words from a computer...and I'm not sure they're right. But we're gonna give it a go...

** Jimmy again, this time on ''The Tonight Show'':
-->"I just heard that ''Despacito'' became the most streamed song online. It's also the most popular song where people just sing one word and mumble the rest."

** It happened again in [[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} the sequel]]- although "Reach Out To The Truth" is a much better battle theme, it's almost impossible to make out any of the lyrics other than "I face out, I hold out, I reach out to the truth of my life" and "can you let me out, can you let me out, can you set me free from this dernernerIdunnotherest".

** In the same game, the theme of TheHub, "Backside of the TV." Aside from "Duhduhnana, duhduhnana, FEEL NO PAIN" from the intro, and "Somethingwhatever, cantunderstand, WHATCHU GONNA DO" in the rapping segment, the song is fairly incomprehensible without looking up the lyrics.

* Creator/TomLehrer's "The Elements," sung to the tune of "The Major-General's Song" from Creator/GilbertAndSullivan's ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance''. Even if you're an accomplished chemist and fully conversant with the periodic table, it's near impossible for your ears to keep up with it.

* The final raid of Alexander in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IiOzi05IlA "Rise"]], a background song that has been described as "''SONIC BOOM completely incomprehensible but enjoyable rap''", and has since spawned numerous videos featuring the song with {{Mondegreen}} lyrics by players. There are some other phrases, such as "''A to the L to the E X ANDER, gobbies gonna rise with all that gander''" and "''Rise with me, rise with me, rise with me, rise up!''", but since the official lyrics have not been released the only words that every player can truly agree on is "SONIC BOOM". The song being performed live at the EU [=FanFest=] 2017 has at least confirmed one thing.
