Once you hear them, these tiny details will ruin popular songs for you (or your enemies).

Reddit's been having a great time picking apart songs by pointing out their almost imperceptible errors. Here are some observations that will, at the very least, point something out you've never noticed about a pretty famous tune. At the worst, it'll make that song unlistenable.

Yeah, nearly a third of these are Clash songs.

Plus, you can listen to all the songs here too, so you can get started on hating them immediately.

1. How do you feel about J. Tim's "Suit and Tie"? Blackbradyy hates the beginning.

Justin Timberlake's super sensual moan at the beginning of Suit and Tie

It is quite sensual, if you're in the mood to hear a goat moan.

2. Exandrus has a great one for all the Baby Boomers and Grammar Nazis.

Paul McCartney, Live and Let Die - "But in this ever changing world in which we live in." Damn it! Why does he have to use the same preposition three times in one line?

This song is so good until you realize Paul needs a copy editor.

Also, are extra prepositions the reason why Paul McCartney admitted Wings was a terrible band?

3. Thisoneguyeh has set out to find the one issue with what is otherwise a perfect song.

The song "Rock the Casbah" is an amazing song, however, if you listen closely, you can hear the sounds of dial tones in the background that don't go well with the song. I can't stop hearing them now, but damn, what a catchy song.

You really gotta listen closely, but it's there.

4. Oh no, the Clash are just getting savaged here.

From Should I Stay or Should I Go: "If I go there will be trouble. And if I stay it will be double."

You just answered your own question, The Clash. You'll clearly have less trouble if you go.


Yes, but he's having so much fun.


5. Greenmask points out the obvious about Muse. Hope you don't like Muse.

I can't listen to Muse the same again after noticing Matt heavily breathing in/out before every line.

uuuughhhhh MY PLUG IN BABY


guuuuhhhhhhhh WHEN I'M TIRED OF LIVING

It's great, however, if you love to listen to your friends breathe but they find it creepy.

6. Drunk_vel is extremely worked up.

Take on me.

WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT EVEN MEAN!? Take me on isn't a whole lot better but it at least implies that there is a challenge to the other person. "Take me on, brah" as in "let's throw down." But "take on me" it doesn't seem grammatically correct but IT'S A HUGELY POPULAR SONG! What the fuck! Does no one else realize this? I feel like I'm fucking crazy and it's actually fine. But seriously, why does no one else have a problem with this!?


Other commenters give them a pass because they're Norwegian.

7. Oh boy. Not a bad point from SeriesOfAdjectives.

Just was having this discussion with my coworkers today: not the greatest song imo but in Fat Lip by Sum 41 there's a line that says "the doctor said my mom should've had an abortion" and then it fades out to the chorus repeating the word 'abortion' again and again. I mean, I get that it's a song about how much they don't give a shit about offending people but it's like nails on a chalkboard for me that they echoed it so many times.


"Bortion, bortion, bortion..."
