Everybody knows that the part in "Purple Haze" where Jimi Hendrix (who died 40 years ago this month) sings "'Scuse me while I kiss the sky" sounds a lot like "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy." There's even a whole book about it, which has in turn spawned more than one daily calendar.

But there are a lot of other hilariously misheard lyrics out there. Rocks Off poked around the Internet and found ten we thought were the funniest.

10. Nickelback, "How You Remind Me":

Actual Lyric: ''Cause living with me must've damn near killed you"
