Twenty One Pilots changed the lyrics to “Stressed Out” and they’re brutally honestJune 10, 2016
During Twenty One Pilots’ show on June 8 in Cleveland, Ohio, frontman Tyler Joseph altered the lyrics to a verse of their hit song, “Stressed Out.”
Joseph’s new words offer a dose of brutal honesty. “I wish I wrote a different song no one's ever heard,” he sang. “I wish my mom would just admit she's sick of every word. Overplayed, overstayed, it was a smash hit. Funny how overplayed songs sound like crap.”
You can check out fan-filmed footage of the song, as well as transcribed lyrics by a Reddit user, below. What do you think of this version?
