Smells Like Annunciation

Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana became an instant classic for misheard lyrics when it was released from their Nevermind album in 1991. Not surprising considering Cobains preoccupation with mumbled angst.

There should be a covenant between record labels, radio stations and musicians that says you may not publish a song without passing an annunciation test. Radio stations could tell emerging artists "No, we can't play your song because none of us understand a word you're singing".
