    11 Songs You Inexplicably Know All The Words To

    Some songs just wash over you when you hear them on the radio or dance to them at a club. Others work their way into you subconscious and hide there until the day you discover that you remember every single lyric. Here are some examples from my life I think you'll be able to relate to:

    1. "Scotty Doesn't Know" - Lustra

    "Catchy tune" indeed. I don't remember much else from Eurotrip except for the "excusey" guy and the fact that you don't see Michelle Trachtenberg naked in it, but this Matt Damon cameo is amazing. Somehow this song is embedded in the brains of everyone born between 1982 and 1992

    2. "Firework" - Katy Perry

    It's not even my favorite Katy Perry song and yet the lyrics made their way into my brain. I blame Glee. (I don't know why I enjoy this lazy, sped up remix, but I do.)

    3. "Teenage Dirtbag" - Wheatus

    While this version is performed by Scala (who I totally discovered on iTunes before The Social Network used their cover of "Creep"), "Teenage Dirtbag" has also been covered by the likes of One Direction. Wheatus' self-titled debut album on which the song appeared is a strange and fun piece that I still find myself listening to often.

    4. "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" - Nine Days

    I reckon that more people could sing all the lyrics to this song than could name the band who wrote them. Bonus points if you know that the radio edit "just to put up with this everyday and all day" is actually "just to put up with this shit day after day."

    5. "Ice Ice Baby" - Vanilla Ice

    Cliche but true. Also this nu metal version Ice recorded was pretty badass at the time but now seems just as silly as the original.

    6. "Fat Lip" - Sum 41

    When you knew all these lyrics you were both punk rock and you could rap! What could be cooler in junior high school?

    7. "Sk8er Boi" - Avril Lavigne

    While were on Canadian pop-rockers (and she used to be married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley), I've never once listened to this song on purpose and yet... The fact that the lyrics are terrible probably helps them stick in your brain. "He was a boy, she was a girl, could I make it any more obvious?" Yeah, you could considering you've said nothing so far.

    8. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" -Taylor Swift

    Jimmy Eat World changed a couple of words for their cover and don't pretend you didn't notice. Taylor has a lot of catchy songs but this one still beats her recent efforts for me.

    9. "Sugar We're Going Down" - Fall Out Boy

    Or at least you think you know all the words, but who the hell knows really?

    10. "The Sweet Escape" - Gwen Stefani

    The choice here actually should have been "Hollaback Girl" but there was no cool cover of that. Still the lyrics to "The Sweet Escape" are pretty bananas.

    B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

    11. "Don't You Want Me" - The Human League

    Just because no list of catchy songs is complete without this 80's classic. These lyrics seem like Taylor Swift could have written them and we'd all gossip about they were actually about Harry Styles, don't they?

    What are some songs I didn't mention? Let me know!
