* In ''Series/TheOfficeUS'', Dwight and Michael mumble through a verse of "We Didn't Start the Fire" (or really "Ryan Started the Fire") until they can shout "Marilyn Monroe". The trope is subverted when Dwight demonstrates in a later [[ConfessionCam confessional]] that he can deliver the lyrics perfectly. (Or else he looked them up and rehearsed before going on camera.)

*** ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'' did a Sunday strip during the 1988 Presidential elections where each of the candidates (UsefulNotes/GeorgeHWBush, Michael Dukakis, and Bill the Cat) [[http://web.archive.org/web/20080719170850/http://tafkac.org/songs/louie_louie_real_words.html translated the song]] based on what they could understand, as if it would tell the public something about them all. Since the ad was sponsored by Bill's people, it takes jabs at Bush ("Iran-Contra thing makes me phlegm") and Dukakis ("Kitty she leads me everywhere") while saying Bill's translation, which isn't even legible English half the time, "revealed a simple honesty".

* Ask someone to sing Toni Basil's "Mickey" and chances are they'll sing the famous "Oh Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey!" refrain and then get stuck because they don't know the rest of the song.

** It also doesn't help that some of the people and events referred to in the song have since become pretty obscure. Most people below the age of about thirty won't have heard of Syngman Rhee[[note]]the first President of South Korea, who resigned in 1960 after a wave of protests[[/note]] or the Payola scandal[[note]]the revelation that record companies were paying radio stations to play their songs[[/note]], and so the line "U2, Syngman Rhee, Payola and [[UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy Kennedy]]" will sound like mostly gibberish to them.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' As usual, Shoji Meguro's themes are in English, despite Meguro not being entirely fluent, and sung by a non-English speaker, resulting in hard to make out lyrics.

* Thanks to a thick Austrian accent prevalent in all of his songs, Falco falls into this big time. Very few people know there are any other words than "Amadeus Amadeus. Oh, oh, oh Amadeus!" in "Rock Me Amadeus", and in "Vienna Calling", about the only thing you can pick out is "Hello, Vienna calling!" Well, that and "Toronto, Canada". Even After the Fire fell into it covering Falco's "Der Kommissar"...

* It's almost universally agreed that ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'''s opening theme is ''incredibly awesome''. However, there is only one recognisable Western word in the entire song - the protagonist's name, Jaegar. Cue many, many occidental anime fans contorting their mouths around unfamiliar Japanese words only to suddenly shout "JAEGAR!!" at the right point.
** For further confusion, the theme song's first line is actually in [[GratuitousGerman German]] (albeit absolutely indecipherable). General consensus has come up with two possible versions of the line:
--->Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die Jäger\\
(They are the food and we are the hunters)\\
Seid ihr das Essen? Nein, wir sind die Jäger\\
(Are you the food? No, we are the hunters)
