Tom Petty's, "Free Fallin'"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
It's a long day, livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway running thru the yard
Why They're Inappropriate:
Geography fail. I happen to live in Reseda, which, for those of you who don't know, is a community located in the San Fernando Valley portion of Los Angeles. No freeway runs through Reseda, but freeways do run through the nearby communities of Tarzana and Van Nuys (US 101 and I-405, respectively). Seems like Mr. Petty needs to look at a street map of Los Angeles and see for himself!

Tom Petty's, "Honey Bee"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
She like to buzz around my tree
Why They're Inappropriate:
Stop right there, Tom! It's pretty clear he doesn't mean an actual tree. I respect Tom Petty, but I did not need to hear about his "tree".
