Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Bad Religion

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Bad Religion's, "Let Them Eat War"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like Demi Moore
The Real Lyrics:
Let them eat war.
The Story: My thick housemate thought this was the lyric the first time he heard the song. I knew he was thick, but this is beyond belief. - Submitted by: Brian Baker
Bad Religion's, "Modern Man"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I won't beg my own mother thinks
The Real Lyrics:
I'm one big myoma that thinks
The Story: I just never had the lyrics in hand since I had a cassette copy in the early 90s. - Submitted by: Mikko Rantanen
Bad Religion's, "Ten in 2010"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Circus on a car.
The Real Lyrics:
Empty swollen guts.
The Story: I first heard this song in the game "Crazy Taxi", and since it's a driving game, it made sense that they'd be singing about cars in this song (though I don't see how "Crazy Taxi" has anything to do with the circus). - Submitted by: James Smith
Bad Religion's, "Ten in 2010"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Twenty, twenty-two
Turning twenty-two
The Real Lyrics:
Ten in 2010
The Story: I kept hearing this song while I was playing the Dreamcast version of Crazy Taxi and I couldn't quite make out the lyrics. At first I thought they were saying "Twenty, twenty-two" or "Turning twenty-two," but then I figured out that they were really saying "Ten in 2010." - Submitted by: Selfish Sam
Bad Religion's, "Unacceptable"
The Misheard Lyrics:
White Pride Pavillion
The Real Lyrics:
One part per million
The Story: My buddy thought BR was speaking out against skinheads (not that it would be a bad thing). - Submitted by: Rich
