5 Seconds of Summer's, "Killer Queen"
The Lyrics:
A built-in remedy for Khrushchev and Kennedy
Why:
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.
