4 Jacks And A Jill's, "Master Jack"

5 Seconds of Summer's, "Killer Queen"
The Lyrics:
A built-in remedy for Khrushchev and Kennedy
Khrushchev is pronounced as “Creshkov”. The mispronunciation is jarring to any fan of the original song, or anyone who has heard of Nikita Khrushchev for that matter. I am not sure if the band had heard the original song before covering it.

The Lyrics:

On the parenthetical line, the back-up singers pronounced "refugee" as "ref-yoo-jay". Why? I have no idea.
