Not So Perfect:
In Good Riddance I thought that the part 'test and don't ask why' was something along the lines of 'tasenoscaqui'..or something. Then I read the lyrics. I'm stupid...I know.

Ahaha thats cute.
I used to think it was "take all the pornographs" instead of photographs

In Extraordinary Girl

"Wiping matches from her eyes"-Misheard lyrics

"Wiping tears from her eyes"-Real lyrics (I think)

All The Time

"Ramen Seuss, ramen Seuss"-Misheard lyrics

"Promises, promises"-Real lyrics

Gosh, I need to check my hearing

In Extraordinary Girl, I heard that too! I heard 'wiping mathces from her eyes' insted of 'wiping the tears from her eyes'. =D

My bro thought that the lyrics..
"This is a public service announcment, this is only a test."
from Warning were..
"This is a public service announcment, this from Layatess"

appearently he thought 'Layatess' was a goverment thing.

Layatess? lmfao

In Extraordinary Girl, I thought "from her heart's apolocoplyspe" was "from her heart to park her lips". And then "like a pet left in the rain" was "a book left in the rain" and I'm all like "why would a book have any courage whether it was wet or not?"

and I thought "St. Jimmy's comin to town across the allway up on the boulevard like a zip code on parade" was "St. Jimmy's goin down across me anyway up on the boulevard like a snowcone on parade".

Also, this is a huuuuge misunderstanding. I only heard of Green Day when AI came out. I didn't know a damn thing about the album. My friend gave me a copy for Christmas and I'm all like "why is Jesus of Suburbia in every song????" and I thought that was like Billie Joe's "thing". And St. Jimmy...I thought his name was really Jimmy. I swear to God. And I went around asking all my friends if his name was Jimmy and Gabi was like "I think so."

So I put the CD in my computer and in WMP, it came up on Homecoming and JOS as "Green Day, Billie Joe, Tre Cool, Mike Dirnt." I had no idea who any of those people were. I thought Tre Cool was some lady. I asked Gabi and she's like Billie Joe is the piano man." I was like "I thought that was Billy Joel" and she was telling me its the same thing.

Later, I looked up Green Day. And Billie Joe came up. And I'm all "He's the midget-angel who made my heart stop? *obsess*"

Favorite Son:

What I hear-

"Where's your fucking champion?
On a panty raid!"

What it actually says-

"Where's your fucking champion?
On the bed you laid!"

In Good Riddance, when it says "Time grabs you by the wrist", I thought he said, "Tom grabs you by the wrist".

I was listening to Jaded earlier.
I thought "Somebody keep my balance"
was "Somebody paint my pants"

I made fourth graders listen to Blood Sex and Booze. They were like "Wow, it's so cool!"

They didn't understand the lyrics. I didn't bother letting them know.

Umm....
*Jaded*
Real lyrics -- Always move forward, going straight will get you nowhere
Silly old me -- Always move forward, going in circles will get you nowhere.
[ I was wondering why it didn't fit at all ]

*KIng For A Day*
Real lyrics -- King for a day, Princess by dawn, King for a day, in a leather thong.
Silly old me -- King for a day, waiting for the throne, King for a day, i have lost my thong.
Oh God, what a muppet. But a suppose the "waiting for the throne" bit does fit in with King for a Day. I didn't even realize it was about someone in drag when I first heard it. I was like, "why did his daddy throw him in therapy? That's mean. He's King!"
Yeah. I'm a bit slow when it comes to those things.

By the way, lyrical_mess, you ain't the only one. I wanted the American Idiot album because I liked American Idiot, WMUWSE and BOBD so when I got it I thought the whole JOS & Jimmy thing was about Billie. I thought it was his state of mind. And Jimmy was his imaginary friend in his mind. [ Sorry, Billie, I know you're not that insane now ].
I knew who Billie Joe was, I don't know how because no-one I knew liked Green Day. However, I didn't know who was Mike and who was Tre when I first got the American Idiot album. I had to get a screensaver of Green Day with their names written underneath them until I'd learnt who they were.

Oh, and in 'Knowledge', It says:

"Wide open road of my future now.... IT'S LOOKIN' FUCKIN' NARROW!"

I always thought it said

"Roll open of my future now.... AND FUCK THE FUCKIN' BARREL!"
