@maguila983 I Love Rock and Roll is by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, at least the version I know of it may be a remake

@Rudie McRudeface LOL whoever got those two singers mix that would get Ricky Nelson mixed up with Willie Nelson.

@Wendy Raines Milennials AND idiots who believe what they see on the internets, without doing their own research, checking sources, and cross-referencing. (Sorry. All of that used to be considered 'research,' but nowadays people think 'Google it' is enough.)

Definitely for melinnials.

There are people who think American Band is by Bachman Turner Overdrive and not Grand Funk Railroad

What about people who thought Stone Cold by Rainbow was a Foreigner song. Also, anyone who hears Jeff Beck’s instrumental guitar music is absolutely certain that it’s Joe Satriani

What about 'Baby Come Back' by player. I knew it wasn't by Hall and Oates only because the DJ pointed out the similarity in the sound before it was played. Also, I've noticed that 'Cats in the Cradle' often comes up in searches as being by Cat Stevens, not Harry Chapin. I'm assuming because it's an acoustic tune and the word 'cat' is in the name of the tune. Also, I've known people who thought 'Beach Baby' by First Class was by the Beach Boys
Bill Flannery (3 days ago)
Holy shit, I forgot I made this comment only to see I repeated it two years later. With only one like it was probably not worth it.

You missed 'Brown-eyed Girl' by Van Morrison, not The Rolling Stones.
Beanchowder (19 hours ago)
Since you brought up a song and 2 acts from the 1960’s, what about “There Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” by Napoleon XIV being confused for a Mother’s Of Invention (Frank Zappa) song or any other novelty song from that time, anyway (“A double cheeseburger, onion rings and a LARGE ORANGE DRINK!”)

America sound nothing like Neil Young -- besides the fact that their lyrics are garbage, they are a vocal harmony group (a bit like the Indigo Girls much later, I guess, only the IGs can write) while Neil Young is a solo singer-songwriter. Maybe someone mistook them for CS&N(&Y) but not with anything Neil Young did as a solo performer, where his harmonists were usually female (e.g. Nicolette Larson, Linda Ronstadt). Also, I never heard of anyone mistaking Stealer's Wheel for Bob Dylan. It's blues-folk; it doesn't sound much like any Dylan song. And the voice is nothing like his, even in the 70s.

My friend's an actual DJ on a radio show, and I had to break it to him that "Hurt" was originally a Nine Inch Nails song, not Johnny Cash

Only one of those was dead right. As a kid I did think Horse with no Name was Neal Young. But,that was a half century ago and nobody gives a damn anymore and I'm sorry I mention it really.

Who TF confuses Panic at the Disco with Fall Out Boy?!
“Reggae. It must be Bob Marley, right?” Never related to quote more.

Trump said that.

You guys have forgotten (the real #1 song), "mellow yellow" by Donovan. Which many thought was a track sang by The Beatles!
Tim Mcvitty (4 days ago)
This list is awful. Especially #1. Where was “Cats in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin, not Cat Stevens?

I liked "I Want It That Way" by Steel Panther, until some Backstreet Boys made a really, really, really, really gay version of it!

The "g" in burgeoning is pronounced as a "j", guys. I'm curious about who would actually wrongfully attribute any of these songs, especially since so many were on the radio, where they would be identified by DJ's.
Robert Megee (6 days ago)
I wonder if they asked people that had their brains fried by various drugs for their information. I can' believe that they are this confused about the original artists. Talk about fake news!

Steelers Wheel sounds like Dylan??? *laughs too hard, falls off her perch*

For years I thought "Stuck in the Middle With You" was a Beatles B-side. I never got the Dylan vibe.

I often confuse Rod Stewart's vocals with the sound of a dying badger being dragged down a gravel road. Or with Kim Carnes for that matter.
Metalhead 420 (7 days ago)
To all the people who are calling the people who thought Creep was by Nirvana dumb, shut the fuck up Stone Temple Pilots wrote songs that thought sounded like other bands for ever so shut the fuck up

The cowsills
Terry McGinley (7 days ago)
The song. I love the flower girl is by the cowhills. Not The Beach Boys Even though I thought it was when I heard the song in dumb and dumber and found out it wasn’t The Beach Boys. Though the vocal sounds like The Beach Boys. Brian Wilson

WHO in the hell thinks Creep is NIrvana? Sounds NOTHING like Cobain...AT ALL Teenage Dirtbag? I love that track, but that guy sounds NOTHING like Rivers voice from Weezer....who the hell thought that? I Swear? Granted, I was alive and a teenager when that came out, but Boyz to Men? Get the hell outta here....sounds not even close to Boyz to Men The America thing I get....it does sound like Neil if you dont know the song Warrior sounds NOTHING like Pat Benetar....who are these people?
rational conservative (7 days ago)
Ok ok also, who in the hell doesn't know that stealers wheel sung that song? This list, as most of Mojo's list, are complete BS! Weezer? Pearl jam? Alanis Morrisette? Give me a break! I'm sure I'll have some more issues with this list...
rational conservative (7 days ago)
I remember downloading songs on Napster and they wouldn't have the correct artist on it, or the name of the song would be the chorus.

Who the fuck thinks Nirvana sang Creep???
Keith Russell (8 days ago)
Pffft! Just post the first few Led Zeppelin albums. Also, get your facts straight. STP wrote "Creep" after Kurt wrote "Negative Creep" many years before. Derp! And who thinks the America song was Neil Young? Oh. 99% of the radio listening community. Anyone who is really into music would know or quickly figure it out. Overall a poor post.

Nellie Silvers (10 days ago)
Yeah...nah. Even as a kid I knew the difference between Kurt Cobain and Scott Weiland EASILY. Apparently alot of people thought Bette Davis Eyes was sung by Rod Stewart...HA!!
Almeater Marcil (10 days ago)
#1 McFaren?! DIDN'T HE WIN A GRAMMY FOR " DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY"
Alan Lewis (11 days ago)
The only one even close was Patty Smyth/Pat Benatar. How about John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band being mistaken for Springsteen doing On The Darkside? I thought so when I first heard it. Until I went looking for it and found out. Who cares if one boy band sounds like another? They all sound like trash to me. One Disco song sounds like all the rest of them! Garbage (no, not the band)! Like the rest of this f---ed up top 10!

The only one I’m having a huge problem with is Teenage Dirtbag...I’m not saying I’ve ever confused any of these artist but, I could see if you’re just a casual radio listener or something but...if you’ve ever hear either Wheatus or Weezer, how could you mix them up? The singers are absolutely nothing alike!
curvy kirby (11 days ago)
What about gucci gang? Thought that song was by Michael Jackson
For the longest time I thought the Corrs' song 'Breathless' was sung by Shania Twain... which is a legitimate mistake because the song was co-written and produced by Shania's then-husband Robert John “Mutt” Lange and sounded like it was written with Shania in mind.
Dragonetta (11 days ago)
Did Donna Summer peak in the 70s or in the 80s?
amwfan88 (12 days ago)
I have a friend who legitimately thinks "Nobody Knows" by the Tony Rich Project is by Babyface. Um....no.....
Amber Hush (12 days ago)
I don't think anyone confused most of the songs on the list...😒🙄
Æodin (12 days ago)
Quiet Riot were not the makers of Cum on feel the Noize, it was Slade. About ten years earlier too. Noddy Holder was the origin of that voice.
Jett Carlburg (12 days ago)
I was there in the early 80s. I remember Scandal. They really did have best song. It was called "GOODBYE TO YOU"
Robert Parry (12 days ago)
This list is garbage. Where is cutting crew? Where is vertical horizon, the psychedelic furs, the zombies, even ELO

I looooove Donna Summer

If you have ever mistaken Bobby McFerrin for Bob Marley, you may be too stupid to live.
Donny Armstrong (13 days ago)
I'm thinking it was a slow music week, so WatchMojo decided to cook up some wacky ideas...Perhaps WatchMojo is the one who is the most confused!
Comp Wiz2007 (13 days ago)
WHAT..?? I never heard ANYONE confuse Creep from STP as being a Nirvana tune...
Kurt Pountney (11 days ago)
If you type up "half the man I used to be" it says nirvana but its creep I used to think it was then I listened to stp and was like what

Only idiots not know that is a song by McFerrin...what a crap list.
Stuart Hayes (15 days ago)
I just spotted something interesting regarding the Thelma Houston/Donna Summer one. Houston's "Don't leave me this way" is mis-credited as being sung by Donna Summer, and this video shows clips of "Don't leave me this way", and Summer's rendition of "I feel love". Both of these songs were later chart entry covers by The Communards.

Morten Aanstad (13 days ago)
Seriously? Biggie was well-known for being an East-Coast rapper (or are you just making a cheap joke?)
Katie James (16 days ago)
This list is pretty ridiculous, the songs I was familiar with I only knew from the original artist and was never even aware someone more famous had covered them or were confused as the artist. There are many songs that could have been included and would have made so much more sense such as Hurt by Johnny Cash/Nine Inch Nails or I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston/Dolly Parton
Chris Lawson (17 days ago)
What about John Cafferty's 'On the Dark Side' sounding like Bruce Springsteen? Or The Hollies 'Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress' sounding like CCR? I don't know anyone who thought 'Don't Worry, Be Happy' was by Marley.
TheAmericanIdol (17 days ago)
Sorry but who makes these mistakes? Like, uh really?
Nick Corduan (18 days ago)
This list seems like a concept that hooked the editorial staff, despite the fact that no one could come up with many songs that actually get confused for one another except for, "Stuck in the Middle with You."
Thomas Stockwell (18 days ago)
this video is garbage wtf

If you thought “Teenage Dirtbag” was by Weezer, you’re just an idiot lol it sounds nothing like Weezer

Here's a good watchmojo list... ...songs you think were sung by a black artist. Examples... "What You Do For Love" by Bobby Caldwell "They Don't Know" by Jon B "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs I even thought Smashmouth was a black band!

Wow! I was surprised I got almost ALL of these wrong other than Stone Temple Pilots and I have always known it was a Bobby McFerrin song. Pretty good list! 👌👌👌
