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...."

Gwen Stefani

"Bubble Pop Electric"
The Lyrics:
 I'm restless, can't you see I try my bestest...
Why: It should be, "...I try my best". But whatever, Gwen's amazing and she can do whatever she wants!!

"Rich Girl"
The Lyrics:
 If I was a rich girl.
Why: That's wrong. It's supposed to be "If I WERE a rich girl."

Rage Against the Machine

"No Shelter"

The Lyrics: I ain't got no crystal ball
Why: Of course. The classic "I ain't got no" line.

Lady Gaga

"Bad Romance"

The Lyrics: You and me could write a bad romance.
Why: It should be you and I could write a bad romance. You wouldn't say "Me write a bad romance," would you?
