Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Todd Rundgren

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 Story: 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.'. - Submitted by: Vince R.
