There are COUNTLESS misheard song lyrics, but I think it's time for something rare! Misheard music band/duo/group/ solo names.

Misheard band name.

Holland Oaks

Correct band name.

Hall And Oates.

I remember looking up Holland Oaks on Amazon when I was younger and Amazon said,"No search results found for Holland Oaks." I was dismayed. I thought,"Holland Oaks is a widely popular, very good, singing duo! How could Amazon NOT have any search results on Holland Oaks? I later found out that the singing duo is Hall And Oates, not Holland Oaks. I searched Hall And Oates on Amazon, and Amazon had lots of Hall And Oates hits, no pun intended.

So, any misheard music groups/bands/duo/solo names?
My name is Donathan, pronounced the same way you pronounce Jonathan, except with a D. :D $608 for her brother's scooter. Fair is fair my ass. Being tough on Public Access TV is priceless.

Naaah.  I used to go to record stores a lot and thumb through all the albums from A to Z, so there was never much chance that I wouldn't know a band or artist's name.
 
I kinda miss doing that.

LOL, Thor but you are from a time where record stores were still all the rage in your youth! In my youth, Napster, Itunes, and Limewire were all the rage! There were like 2 record stores I knew of when I was a CHILD! And ONE dinky record store when I was like 21!

The first few times I saw the name of the band INXS in writing, I would ask myself... "WTF does "inksis" mean???"

Eventually I realized it's actually pronounced "in excess".

I used to think that the band name Desmond Child and Rouge was some reference to a child named Desmond until I realized that the guy's name is Desmond Child.

This is the 70's band in which the family of one of the "Rouges" (Rougettes?) were close friends of my family.
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Oh my God! Me too! It also took me a while to realize that INXS is "in excess!" I assumed that it was what it said on the tin. I N X S. Ha ving to say each letter out loud everytime just may get really annoying. Luckily it is pronounced in excess!
