10 Songs You're Not Supposed To Understand

You just don't get it, maaan (and you're not supposed to).

Lyrics don't really seem to matter in the realm of popular music. For as many clever wordsmiths have come and gone throughout music history, musicians can really put any placeholder words onto a track so long as it has a decent melody floating over the top. Nevertheless, fans have taken it upon themselves to speculate as to what these songs are about.

Since the dawn of pop music, people have developed their own conspiracy theories about what songs might mean and have even made bold accusations about the artists singing the songs in the process. What'll sting even more is when these overeager fans realize that they are getting all worked up over nothing.

Instead of tying together a narrative or wanting to make an artistic statement, these songs make it a point to make absolutely no sense. Some may feel short-changed when there's no meaning behind their favorite tracks, but that's the beauty of music: it can all mean completely different things to completely different people.

Whether it's to hide something hidden under the surface or just to goof on their overzealous fans, these are a few songs that are meant to baffle the hell out of you. If you're still trying to extract some meaning out of these...best of luck, I guess.
