Rock Songs that are the most misunderstood (Results from a poll taken the week of Sept 7, 2020) Rockers who had the most bizarre or unusual deaths (Results from a poll taken the week of May 6, 2019)
1 Louie Louie - The Kingsmen - Not a song about or containing obscenities, but just poorly recorded w/ misunderstood lyrics that weren't really dirty at all. 1 Taylor Mitchell - Killed while on tour in 2009 by a pack of coyotes in Nova Scotia, the only known fatal coyote attack on a human in Canada
2 Born in the USA - Bruce Springsteen - Not a patriotic US anthem about American pride. A put-down song and the total opposite of what many thought, including being about mistreatement of Vietnam Vets 2 Brian Jones (Stones) - More than likely was murdered by his handyman on July 3, 1969, in his pool. Death ruled a 'misadventure'
3 Blackbird - The Beatles - Not about a blackbird that flies, but about black people and the U.S. civil rights movement of the late 1960s 3 Bobby Fuller - Found July '66 in his car w/ multiple stab wounds and covered in gasoline. Believed murdered by the Mafia, final ruling was he died from 'accidental asphyxiation'
4 Hey Jude - The Beatles - When this came out, everybody knew it was about a heroin user. It wasn't, but written by Paul to John's son to comfort the boy after his parent's break-up 4 Keith Relf - The singer was electrocuted by his electric guitar at his home on May 14, 1976.
5 Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds - Beatles - Not about LSD (nor is the title), as was assumed when released. Just a title of a drawing John Lennon's 5 year old son Julian made & named after his friend at school 5 Mike Edwards (ELO) - Killed by a bale of hay weighing 1,300 pounds that rolled down a hillside and collided with his van on Sept 3, 2010
6 Last Train To Clarksville - Monkees - 2 meanings. 1 about a U.S.draftee being shipped off to Vietnam-other about a draft-dodger. 'I don’t know if I’m ever coming home', is about fleeing to Canada to avoid the draft & not being allowed to come back home 6 Marvin Gaye - Shot dead by his own father in 1984, a preacher, who was jelious of his son's success
7 Every Breath You Take - The Police - Mistaken for a tender, romantic song by some who didn't pay attention to the lyrics; but it's about stalking an ex-lover.  (tied for 7th) 7 Dimebag Darrell (Pantera) - Killed in December of '04 by a gunman while on stage performing with his new band, Damageplan
7 Fortunate Son - Credance Clearwater Revival - Not about greedy US rich people so much, but everything else wrong with them in the '60s. Rich boys didn't get drafted, only poor kids did-like the song's writer, John Fogerty (tied for 7th) 8 Eldon Hoke (aka El Duce, lead singer of The Mentors) - Decapitated by a train in 1997
7 Mother and Child Reunion - Paul Simon - While the song is about the loss of a parent, the title wasn't at all. It was from a dish listed on a Chinese restaurant menu that Simon saw. (tied for 7th) 9 Sandy Denny - Either fell or jumped down a stairway (one of several such falls), hitting her head on concrete, in 1978
10 American Girl - Tom Petty - Not about a gal in Florida who died by suicide, as most claimed. Petty made this clear;said it was about people who are longing for a better life (tied for 7th)
Imagine - John Lennon -Not a hymn about peace & love so much. About encouraging people to use revolutionary methods, to be anti-religious, anti-nationalistic, anti-conventional, anti-capitalistic (tied w/...)
Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler - Songwriter Jim Steinman says the song is about the power of darkness - and vampires of all things! (tied for 10th)
