Song lyrics like that are fine, I don't think you should concern yourself with them.  August wouldn't scan. You can't say "nobody would ever say" in this case, because they're not, they're singing it. In a song. 

I always see people getting het up about that Oasis lyric "Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball" as if it's some massive mistake and they must dunk on it. 

Actually, this is my minor annoyance, people picking apart the logic of song lyrics.

Surely that's just a lyric trying to explain what it's like to be on drugs? I'm pretty sure Noel has even said this.

"Wake me up, when September ends".

So, the 1st of October then.

I always thought it was a shit lyric until I found out it's about his dad dying in September and he just wishes the whole month would fuck off. Then it just made me feel for the bloke, especially after it sort of backfired on him now the "IT'S 1ST OCTOBER! BETTER WAKE UP BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG" memes are a thing.

"I'm incredibly depressed and dream of expediting the passage of time until I'm feeling better" might be more accurate and stop people trying to be smart cunts but it makes for a shit lyric and would be a bugger to write a tune to. 

I do love it when people try and dig into lyrics as having some deep meaning that's not there though. Someone once spent ages telling a group of us Bohemian Rhapsody was a deep story about him finding out he had aids until someone pointed out he wasn't diagnosed until years after its release.

Nonsense. It’s expected of me on Facebook to proclaim this, then say see you next month for the Wyclef one. It’s up there with the stiffy at the bus stop when the clocks change.

The only one of these types of memes I like is Scroobius Pips "Happy Fathers Day motherfuckers!!!"  which genuinely makes me laugh every year.

Could be a reference to the mid-80s Woody Allen stinker.

This isn’t the same as the others though. “When September ends” let’s the listeners (teenagers taking their tentative steps in to the alternative radio friendly music scene) that September is shit. Wake me up when it’s the 1st of October might just mean he hates the other nine months but really loves the last quarter. 
 

Also the greatest bad lyric album ever has to be My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy by Yeezy himself. The Chris Rock monologue, the “Sent a bitch a picture of my dick” line in Runaway the lot. It’s like his own personal love letter to misogyny wrapped up in expertly produced hip hop bangers with the worse lyrics ever.

Nah, he just couldn't think of anything to rhyme with hall other than cannonball. Not a joke by the way, that's what he has said.

I know we're veering well off topic, and this could be an unending topic (especially within hip hop) but Nas exclaiming last year that he was "still going deeper like I grew a new inch on my dick" quite possibly is the worst lyric I have ever heard.

And that takes some doing with some of the shit I listen to.

You've lost me I'm afraid.

Hogan apparently knew about Liberace’s HIV/AIDS diagnosis before he did and has made comments about not wanting to shake Liberace’s hand at WM1, thinking that he might catch HIV/AIDS from him. WM1 was in March 1985, Liberace wasn’t diagnosed (which happened privately) until August 1985, and his illness wasn’t made public until his death nearly 2 years later.

Suppose it’s more that The Hulkster is the person in your story with the deep knowledge of Bohemian Rhapsody

“Slowly walking down the hall, bumped  into Scott Hall, where were you when we were getting high”

All sorted now.
