    Don't have anything too ridiculous, but:

    Getting Smaller: Hey and for what in this world
    WISH (Not Wish): Where's your dead at?
    Sunspots: And everything I'd ever want, is inside of TIER!!!!!!

    Caught my old roommate singing along to Love is Not Enough right after WT came out and heard this gold...

    Actual Lyrics: "For you to go and take this...and smash it apart"

    Drunk Roommate's Lyrics: "Forty years ago in TEXAAAAS..."

    The second I stopped the music and said, "Wait, wait, WAIT...what did you say???" he got all embarrassed...especially when I pointed out the next lyric doesn't fit his version!!
    So, as a good friend does, I still casually throw that confusing line into our conversations and will do so until one of us dies.

    That reminds me. I keep hearing "But not another reason to continue" as "But not another reason out to continue."

    When I first got into NIN about 10 years ago I always misheard "happiness" at the end of Happiness In Slavery as "A penis" whispered over and over again. Yes, I feel weird about it in retrospect.

    And yeah, I always thought the "not/out to continue" thing in The Wretched was strange. I guess it's just the delay or something that catches up with the vocals.

    I used to mishear shitloads of lyrics, the one that sticks out in my mind right now is from Love Is Not Enough even tough it's a relatively minor one

    Actual line
    'The tile on the floor, so cold it can sting'

    What I heard
    'The towel on the floor, so cold it can sting'

    "You've become a virus that's killing off his host" sounds to me like "You've become violent - keeping off his host".

    My girlfriend hears the chorus of Less Than as “I’m Molested.” I can’t unhear this now.

    Same. Even to this day.

    Also, "The Perfect Drug".

    HEARD: "Take me with you / take me, if you want"

    IS: "Take me with you / take me with you"

    I heard that until the multitracks came out.

    even though the song is called LESS THAN, when i sing the chorus to myself without the recording to correct me, instead of:

    are you less than?

    i hear:

    are you listenin'?

    I always and still do think he's saying "not another reason left to continue" still means the same thing and could have been thrown in to fit the rhythm without necessarily changing the written lyrics

    I just realized that the following are not, in fact, the actual lyrics, and now the title of the song makes much more sense:

    I am forgiven
    I am free
    I am not real
    I'm fire

    Was convinced for years that the line in Burn was "I wanna watch the whole world burn" and no-one could tell me otherwise. This was when I had the NBK OST on cassette only and had lost it. When I got the song again on CD I was upset Trent had rerecorded it with new lyrics. That was, what, 15 years ago? Still convinced I'm right.

    In college I had a roommate who misheard lyrics all the time, anyway I heard him singing 'Last' to himself once. Kinda like once you see something, you can never un-see it.

    Real lyrics: "this isn't meant to last, this is for right now, this isn't meant to last"

    What I heard: "this is a metal ass, this for right now, this is a metal ass..."

    Even right now, I can't stop laughing.

    Yup, "metal ass" on that song is an old classic. Peeps been hearing it that way for years.
