Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Dimmu Borgir

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!).

Alive in Torment album at
Dimmu Borgir's, "Cataclysm Children"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Are you born from the yuppees?
The Real Lyrics:
Are you born from the abyss?
The Story: When Shargrath screams the word 'abyss' on the line, he doesn't stress the second syllable as it should be and it sounded like he pronounced the 'y' like an 'ee' sound (as in 'feed' or 'sheep'). That's how I got the word confused. - Submitted by: Kyle
Dimmu Borgir's, "Puritania"
The Misheard Lyrics:
We'll do away with your cars.
The Real Lyrics:
We'll do away with your kind.
The Story: I always thought it was weird he was talking about how he would do away with my cars. But then I saw the real lyrics and feel really stupid now. I think I have bad ears. - Submitted by: Insane Squirle
