Cracker
"Teen Angst (What The World Needs Now)"
Cracker (1992)

David Lowery has always been interesting to me. Earned a BS in math from UC-Santa Cruz, was a derivatives trader, teaches at the Univ. of Georgia. I bet he would be a fun guy to put down a case of beer and, oh I dunno, go bowling with.

Interesting the description on this video "Music video by Cracker performing Teen Angst (What The World Needs Now) (Live at the Ogden Theatre, Denver CO.)."

interesting, as the comments say, to see a glimpse into an iconic song like this, when it wasn't an iconic song, it wasn't even a recorded song, just the straw man rough cut idea in Reggie's head about a song Bernie wrote about his girlfriend at the time, later wife Maxine Feibelman, actually a seamstress

After nearly thirty years I still don't know what the hell this guy is saying but I love this song.

@Hulk just loves Pearl Jam, so he's got his thoughts I'm sure. ;-) It's an anti-war song about a kid who's lost his brother but the words change all the time and I don't know if there are written down lyrics other than the opening line "Unsealed on a porch, a letter sat" and the chorus of "I don’t know whether I’m the boxer or the bag. I don’t know whether he’s coming home in a box or a bag."

I understand the underlying message but if you were to just listen to the song for the first time without looking at the lyrics, you can't understand what the hell Eddie Vedder is saying. The guy almost mumbles like Bob Dylan.

Yeah, I get ya now. He's probably one of the most well known and the song definitely is. But what other (not including a lot of metal and punk anyway) singers do people struggle to understand? Come to mind are Jay Farrar, Neil Young, Kurt Cobain, the Toms Waits and Petty.

The famous one is Jack Ely singing on "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen.



Read some of these misheard lyrics and see if you can ever hear the correct ones again.

In light of Ray's post (and other reasons).


"Misunderstood"
Being There (1996)
Wilco

This was recorded for VH1's Hard Rock Live in or around 1997. Apparently Roger McGuinn was also on this episode.
