At one time or another, we have all misheard something someone said. It’s called a mondegreen, a real word coined by Sylvia Wright which means the misinterpretation or mishearing of a phrase. It’s normal but can be the cause of great amusement and shameful embarrassment, even in classic rock songs.

Rockabilly 101

This may be the case in the 2000's, with the reworking of New Wave and Garage Rock, but it was also true 50 years ago with the birth of rock and roll. Add frenetic hillbilly to boogie woogie piano, soul shouters and the electrified guitar, and rockabilly was the natural result.
