Top 10 Misinterpreted Songs

Devil and drug worship are the most popular misinterpretation of two Rock songs. And this post reminded me of the ridiculous backward masking of rock songs in the early 80’s to prove the songs are ‘satanic’. Here is List Universe’s list:

“Hotel California”: Listeners think devil worship because of the “kill the beast” line, but the Eagles themselves say that’s nonsense. It’s a reflection of the rock-and-roll lifestyle they were living in Los Angeles at the time. (Although the song really sounds satanic)

“Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds”: John Lennon swore that it was inspired by a drawing by his son and that he never realized the LSD connotations.

“Born in the USA”: Politicians who borrow it might think it sounds patriotic, but it’s actually an indictment of the Vietnam War’s effect on Americans.

“In the Air Tonight”: Legend has it that Phil Collins saw someone drown from afar while another person refused to help. Collins says it’s about his divorce.
