What list of misunderstood songs would be complete without the fire starter itself, Queen. With lyrics like “I consider it a challenge before the whole human race and I ain't gonna lose” followed by the chanting of “we are the champions of the world,” no prepper in their right mind would ignore this warning sign of a world soon to be overthrown by the undead.
4. “Free Bird” – Lynyrd Skynyrd
“And this bird you cannot change” sounds more like a challenge to the infected than anything—that no matter what, this red-blooded American will never succumb to the virus.
5. “Take Me” – KISS
“Put your hand in my pocket and grab onto my rocket.” An obvious representation of…oh, who am I kidding. This means sex. Like all KISS songs, this one is about sex. Next.
1. “Eat You Alive” – Limp Bizkit
While the lyrics may reflect that of a man obsessed with the scent of a woman, if the PMRC can hear “it’s fun to smoke marijuana” by playing Another One Bites the Dust backward, then by golly we can feel unsafe around the freshly deceased after hearing this song.
2. “Here Comes the Sun” – The Beatles
Clearly a cleverly disguised warning to the undead, perhaps more for the vampires than zombies, but the end is not yet nigh, so we’ll just have to see what the end does bring.
“Guess who just got back today? Them wild-eyed boys…man, I still think them cats are crazy.” If this doesn’t scream “They’re coming to get you, Barbara” then I don’t know what does. Perhaps even the band name is a euphemism for a living dead girl. Note to self: This band may be worth looking into further.
7. “Alive” – Pearl Jam
“Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room. She said I'm ready for you. I can't remember anything to this very day, except the look, the look...Oh, you know where. Now I can't see, I just stare...I. I'm still alive. Hey I, but, I'm still alive.” I shouldn’t even have to explain this one to you, but allow me to paraphrase: “The female zombie shambles across the kid’s room. She says “Brains!” He can’t remember anything about what happened except her freaky face. Now he’s a zombie too and just stares all day, yet he’s still alive”…i.e. the walking dead. Enough said.
