Ever find out that you've been singing a song wrong for years? Happened to me this morning.

An article about how bands were wrongly criticized for changing over the years mentioned Metallica, and used King Nothing as an example of their newer sound. Since I love this song, I cranked the speakers way up. Now, here's how I've always heard the chorus:

Then it all crashes down
And you break your crown
And you point your finger
But there's no one around
Just want one thing
Just to play the king
But the castle's crumbled
And you're left with n-n-n-n-nothing
Where's your crown, King Nothing?
Where's your crown?

But with the volume I had it at, along with a really high quality track, I realized that James was singing something different. Looked it up, and sure enough, the line that I thought was a stuttered "nothing" is actually this:

And you're left with just a name

Learn something everyday.
