"Hello It's Me"
Misheard Lyrics:
L.O.D.
Original Lyrics:
Hello it's me.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Vince R.

When I was a kid (back in the early 90's), I was (and still am) a fan of professional wrestling, and one of the most popular wrestling tag teams was the Legion of Doom (or the L.O.D.), so it was only natural that my young mind would interpret the line 'Hello It's Me' as 'L.O.D.'.

Music With a Warning Label:

"A Wizard/A True Star and Initiation"
Both albums were stretched out with music and both albums said that if you use a worn-out needle, it will scratch the record and it also said that if the album sounds quiet even with the speakers in full-blast, record the album on tape.
