Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> The Foo Fighters

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!).

The Foo Fighters', "Darling Nikki"
The Misheard Lyrics:
I could not resist when Nicky started to cry.
The Real Lyrics:
And I could not resist when I saw little Nikki grind.
The Story: I was in the car with my best friend. After we listened to this song, she told me she liked the song; but it made no sense that Nicky was always crying, but in the end told him to call her up next time he needed a booty call. I laughed hysterically then explained to her the real lyrics. She was very embarrassed. - Submitted by: Sarah
The Foo Fighters', "Miss the Misery"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Mister misery, need the reason for a change.
The Real Lyrics:
Miss the misery, need the reason for a change.
The Story: My memory had fused with a crazy coworker who used to hit on everyone. - Submitted by: Bradley Atkinson
