State Champs – “Secrets”

What we hear: “What did you expect to happen/Were you Matt Damon/With nothing left to do”
What it is: “What did you expect to happen/Were you mad then/With nothing left to do”

Honestly, we’re still not convinced we’re wrong. Maybe the band just really like Matt Damon?

All Time Low – “This Is How We Do”

What we hear: “Keeping us a secret/We’re the butt fucking believers”
What it is: “Keeping us a secret/We’re the back pocket believers”

Come on. It’s All Time Low. If anyone would have “butt fucking believers” in a song, it would be them. We never would have given this lyric a second thought.

blink-182 – “Dumpweed”

What we hear: “She’s a dog/She’s a fucking nightmare”
What it is: “She’s a dove/She’s a fucking nightmare”

Another one that we would have sang confidently without a second thought. Although, dove does sounds a lot nicer…

Bowling For Soup – “Punk Rock 101”

What we hear: “It’s stupid, contagious/To think my bro can save us”
What it is: “It’s stupid, contagious/To be broke and famous”

Apparently Bowling For Soup have more faith in their “bro” than we do.

Like Pacific – “22A”

What we hear: “‘Cause you get Pikachus”
What it is: “‘Cause you can’t pick and choose”

Well so much for this being our “Pokemon Go” theme song. Now what are we supposed to sing when we’re out looking for Pikachu?!

State Champs – “Hard To Please”

What we hear: “You’ve got a blinding scent of dick breath”
What it is: “You’ve got a plan inside a deep breath”

Every State Champs fan we’ve ever talked to will tell you this is the lyric they hear. Trust us: Once you hear it, you can’t un-hear it.

ROAM – “Head Rush”

What we hear: “And everything I grope/Just comes back again”
What it is: “And everything I throw/Just comes back again”

Oh…this one makes a lot more sense now.
