the other day i was singing We're Not Gonna Take It in English class and in an attempt to shut me up my friend asks me "Who sings that?"
and i say "Twisted Sister."
so she goes "Good, then leave the singing to her."
and I was like "Uhhh it's not a girl, it's a full male band..."
I was about 10 or 11 when I first heard of Marilyn Manson. This was also the first time I'd heard of the name Marilyn, so I thought it was a man's name. A little later, I heard about Marylin Monroe, but when I saw a picture of 'him' I was shocked to see 'he' was a WOMAN! I was like, "a woman called Marylin!?"
In the early 1970s, a teenaged babysitter brought an album by "The Guess Who" over to the house. I was old enough to read, and upon studying the name on the album cover, demanded to know what group this was. She answered, "Guess Who", to which I replied, "I can't guess! Tell me!"
It took her quite awhile to get me to understand that this was a name of a group...and for years afterward, I always mixed them up with The Who.
I recently very disturbed to learn that Al Jolson was in fact Caucasian.
When my much younger sister was about three or four she was watching a video clip on television and said to me "Who is that lady?"
I said with out trying to laugh, "It's Michael Jackson" as I honestly couldn't say anything else ... Lucky she didn't ask me again!
when i was a kid i thought that rufus of rufus and chaka khan was a person, not a band.
I used to believe that if you were nearly out of blank printer paper, the best way to get new paper would be to take the last sheet and photocopy it many times.
I also used to believe that a prima donna was someone who aspired to be like Madonna; therefore I remember being very upset whenever someone referred to me as one. I didn't like her teeth.
I once did a report on Marilyn Manson, but I had no idea who MM was, so I made up some facts, one I remember was that "she attended an all girls school from ages 6-12" boy was I in trouble!!
My friend used to think one guy in the Hansons was a girl and he had a huge crush on him and then his mom told him that sometimes guys just have really long hair. XD
I used to think when a member of a band would release a solo album, they would just play their own instruments parts of the bands famous songs.
I love the group Hanson, but when i was little i thought they were robots 'cause of their song MMMBop. cause usually robots say boo bop ba.
Because of her hoarse voice, I thought Macy Gray was really old, probably somewhere in her 80s (she's around 35 right now).
When Abbamania was on tv as a tribute thing, I watched it, and after hearing the lyrics 'thank Abba for the music', I was convinced that Abba invented music, and before they were around, it didn't exist...
Because of MAD Magazine, I believed that Elvis died while on the john, with a tub of KFC in his lap.
I thought that Tommy Lee (the singer) and Tommy Lee Jones(the actor) were the same exact person.
I used to believe Chad Kroeger from Nickelback was computer generated
I was at the roller skating rink in the 70's and heard a great song, so I asked the DJ for the title. I went to the record store and, unable to find it, asked a clerk for help. "What's the name of the song?" he asked. "Paradise," I replied. "And who sings it?" it took me a moment to remember what the DJ had said but then - "it's by The Dashboard Light!"
When I was younger I thought that band names made the band literally what their name said they were. This lead me to believe that The Beatles broke up because The Byrds ate them. I was also very confused that Monkees and Doors could play instruments.
When I was younger my Granma & Grandad lived round the corner from Elton Road. My Grandad once told me it was called this because Elton John lived there. I believed him for years and years. I would tell my friends that Elton John lived round the corner from my Grandad! It was only a few months ago (i'm now 22) that I found out he was winding me up. I was so sad that my claim to fame wasn't true.
When I was in middle school that boy band Hanson had just came out. Their big hit was that 'Mmbop' song. I used to hear it on the radio all the time and thought it was a girl group singing because they sounded like girls. It wasn't until a friend brought the CD to school talking about how hot they were that I realized they were boys. I didn't feel stupid, however because my other friend who was with us said "I thought they were girls!" Me too!
