Rock Songs Minus One Letter

Monkey playing a guitar, illustration for rock songs minus one letter humor article

This is a fun game to play with friends. Take the name of a song, subtract one letter, and tell everyone what the new song is about. I’ve used a bunch of classic rock songs in my list, so if you don’t get a joke, ask your dad.

  • Pink Floyd – “Comfortably Nub” – Pink loses a finger, but he’s okay with that.
  • Van Morrison – “Brow Eyed Girl” – A ballad about his ex-girlfriend’s amazing eyebrows
  • Bob Seger – “Turn The Age” – Bob sings about what happens on your birthday.
  • Elton John – “Rocket Ma” – This tune tells the tale of a woman who helped end the Cold War by giving birth to the first ICBM.
  • Cheep Trick – “I Want You To Ant Me” – Robin Zander wrote this song at a low point in his life, when all he wanted was for someone to burn him with a giant magnifying glass.
  • Blue Oyster Cult – “Don Fear The Reaper” – This song was written in an attempt to convince Don Knotts to give up his dangerous lifestyle and settle down before he got hurt. Don would later quit his career as a motorcycle daredevil and become an actor.
  • Foreigner – “Uke Box Hero” – A love ballad dedicated to the hardworking men and women of the ukelele shipping industry.
  • The Pretenders – “Bass In Pocket” – Chrissie Hynde’s ode to her pet fish, which she carried everywhere she went.
  • Blind Faith – “Can’t Find My Way Hoe” – A hit song about pulling over to ask a prostitute for directions. And that’s all he was doing, officer.
  • Sammy Hagar – “I Can’t Dive 55” – Sammy wrote this song to vent his frustrations over being too young to use the pool at the senior center.
  • The Clash – “I Fought The Aw” – Joe Strummer’s tune about resisting the urge to pet a cute kitty.
  • Ozzy Ozbourne – “Crazy Rain” – Ozzy wrote this song about the time he saw rain falling up. No one had the heart to tell him it was just a lawn sprinkler.
