Most incomprehensible English songs you ever heard

I dunno what other people might think but my own personal "favorites" are Surfin' Bird(The Thrashmen) and Shake That Thing(Sean Paul). Actually Surfin' Bird was kinda cool though but Shake That Thing was very incomprehensible that I have no idea it was sung in English until I was able to read its lyrics.

I also wants to add Kiss Kiss(Holly Vallance) but since it was originally sung in Turkish(?!) so I don't count it. Actually it also very comprehensible even you heard it for the first time.

Please keep this thread clean of criticism because this is a trivia thread, not criticism.

Most death metal probably counts here to most people. Hell, I still have trouble understanding a few of my favorite bands.

I at first thought this thread for entirely Engrish songs... I think it has to do with my first language being german but I can't understand a lot of songs that are usually rap or metal/death metal.

I like Rob Zombie but can't understand a word he's saying most of the time. A few songs of Disturbed seem too fast for me too.

Bands I have no trouble at all with are:
Soil
Linkin Park
Metallica

I moved to england with my parents when I was 10 and have no problems with normal conversation (as you should after 13 years living here), so I guess it really is those songs... will be interesting to see if anyone agrees with Disturbed.

But maybe it is a language thing then, I can't think of any german songs I can't understand. Rammstein is the clearest singing ever to me.

Oh and SOAD (best band ever to happen ever)

(This Cocaine Makes Me Feel Like I'm On This Song, Chop Suey's intro, and Vicinity of Obscenity's little spiel in the middle are the most incomprehensible....)

Gotta agree on this! As a non native English speaker, I have especially trouble with this. Well after a few listenings you get the picture slowly, but googling for lyrics is still my life savior.

Most memorable incomprehensible song I can think of at the moment is definitely this one:



It's so bad Jim Carrey even did a comedy skit about it:

Is Napalm Death death metal? That is the band that came to mind for me with the OPs question.

LOL, Solace, that skit was awesome.


Hmm, mine would definitely be Yellow Bedletter by PearlJam. I don't know the real lyrics. But this misheard lyrics video seems to be pretty accurate lol

Yeah Tourette's is pretty bad. Anything by Psycroptic is hard as well with any of their singers.
