+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.)

+FaceRip Creep came out before Bobbit had his "accident" it was written in 91 recorded and released in 92 boobit happened in 93 or 94 I believe...the line " Bob has got a gun" was about the bands bass player Robert DeLeo

If the internet and Google has mistakes in who sang a song I wonder what Google and other media outlets also information website got wrong as well. Like all my life I was told to eat all veggies then found out later in life that tomatos are part of the fruit family. So i was eating something that wasnt a veggie.

Was ready to totally discredit this video when woops, I always thought Pat Benatar sang The Warriors. Most of these were pretty ridiculous though. I’d probably knock the shit out of somebody if they told me Bob Marley sang don’t worry, be happy.

Don’t Leave Me This Way was also covered/reworked by The Communards which made for more confusion.

I ALWAYS knew that "A Horse With No Name" was by America and not Neil Young. In fact, I didn't know anyone thought it was by Neil Young until this video.

How about "Everything by Jan and Dean, NOT The Beach Boys"?

When I saw The Fast And The Furious at the movie theater (back in 2001) I was like "This new Marilyn Manson song really kicks ass!" The song was *Debonaire* and I just didn't know *Dope* at the time... :-/

I guess not all these lists can be good...this one isn’t good.
Mark Garin (7 days ago)
Ah...most of these I knew who sang them....few others never heard of. Wasn't confusing to me. But Bowie covered that one.... But I spent months trying to find out who sang a song called 'the legend of Cinderella', who the band was never identified, later to find out it was Firefall.
BuJu Blades (7 days ago)

I feel like for this list they literally just chose artists with similar styles and slapped together a list. Lmao no one has ever thought Creep was by Nirvana.

The 'creep' thats actually worth a listen, is by Radiohead...

I’ve never heard anyone say Don’t Worry Be Happy was Bob Marley. For Years Phish had a disclaimer on their site that the cover of Gin and Juice attributed to them was actually The Gourds, and Phish had never covered that song.

10.) I'm guessing the audience for this is kinda small these days and I doubt under Gen X even knows these names; moving on. 9.) Who on earth thought this was Alannis Morrisette? They don't even sound close. Urban Legend. 8.) This is a joke right? 7.) Ok maybe; the voice sounds nothing like River, but to be fair, Weezer was one of those 90s bands that were really big in some circles but not mainstream, as they went on to be, so I could see that. 6.) Both groups were a generic quartet sound so this one is completely spot on. 5.) Same as number 10; but again this one is actually kinda close so I could see it. 4.) ok yes these 80's musicians, yes another good call 3.) absolutely no one thinks this is Bob Dylan. You can understand the words for crying out loud. 2.) I don't actually think anyone thinks this. If it wasn't for Gaurdians of the Galaxy I doubt millennials would even know this is a song. lol 1.) Guys Bob Marley had been dead for almost a decade (7 years, 1981) before this song was released in 88. No, no people don't. lol
Dave Leach (9 days ago)
You lied, said you wasn’t gonna have it in the list if the band did a cover #7 weezer did a live cover

Anybody that confuses Stone Temple Pilots as Nirvana... Doesn't need to be here. J/K. We can't be friends, though. STP is awesome.
Brandon Gill (23 days ago)
At the time (1996), The Distance by Cake would've been mistaken for a Beck song.
Amy English (24 days ago)
If you think Scott Weiland sounds like Kurt Cobain, think again! Scott is amazing. Listen to Atlanta by Stone Temple Pilots. Breath taking!

How can anyone confuse Scandal's Patty Smyth, with Pat Benatar? Maybe someone who doesn't listen to popular music. Mistake Rubert Holmes for Jimmy Buffet? If you're tone deaf...

Mike Fisher (27 days ago)
For the first year the song was out I thought Pharrell Williams Happy was CeeLo Green then I done some research and found out that that song was written for CeeLo Green but his manager fucked him out of the deal There was even a recording of CeeLo Green singing Happy but it was destroyed💯

I have an idea! I'll make a stupid-as-sh*t video and post it to YouTube, just to see how many people view it. There was no confusion on about 70% of these songs. Don't Worry Be Happy getting confused as Bob Marley song?! Are you serious man??!!

Back in 2001 a guy I went to high school with tried to tell me not only that he knew for a fact but did he could prove that the song Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple was by Foghat which is an impossibility to prove.

This list insults my intelligence. Seriously I was not into grunge rock in the 90s and knew Creep was not sung by Nirvana. Quality over quantity Watch Mojo sigh!

See, damnit this is a prime example of how the internet and all its vast information is more dangerous than a high powered rifle. I love rock and roll, if I didn’t believe in Jesus it would be my faith. If you thought stp was nirvana and Steelers wheel was bob dylan, you should loose the right to make videos for the world to see. This didn’t clear anything up except for, the people on earth with the biggest access to info in history are most artistically stupid people since the dawn of time...and we gave them a megaphone.

To the people asking "who the f--- confused STP's Creep with Nirvana", just search for "Nirvana - Half The Man I Used To Be" on YouTube. You'll see plenty of videos pop up. It was also definitely a thing on mp3 exchange sites back in the day. I downloaded the song myself back then and it was constantly mislabelled as "Nirvana - Half The Man I Used To Be". It was a pretty common mistake for many years.
