|Andrew Youssef/OC Weekly|
Heard Mentality stumbled upon comedy site Am I Right, which calls out bad grammar in various songs. While the list is skimpy at best, we combed through it and found a few local acts in the mix. As a grammar teacher said, "You could get lost in this...."
"Bubble Pop Electric"
The Lyrics: I'm restless, can't you see I try my bestest...
