  Bad English - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bad English is an American rock band formed in 1988, reuniting keyboardist Jonathan Cain with singer John Waite and bassist Ricky Phillips, his former bandmates in The Babys.
John Waite missed a shot and someone made a comment on how bad his "English" was (referring to the spin a player puts on the cue ball) and the band decided to use the phrase for their name.
Bad English drummer Deen Castronovo later went on to join a reformed Journey with singer Steve Augeri, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, and Ross Valory.

 FAQs on Linguistics & Bad Linguistics
English is not getting worse, and the cave people of 40,000 BC did not speak in primitive grunts.
This is usually not a subject most people think about until they hear their children using "bad grammar." The fact is that the process of language learning or, as linguists call it, "language acquisition" is different from other types of learning such as learning to tie shoes or add and subtract.
English speakers have moved all over the world, but even if English only arrived on a continent in the 19th century, it does not negate the fact that some form of English was spoken in the 6th century AD in England.

Strong reinforcement of standard English through repetitious reading and writing exercises is one solution to the problem of illiteracy in ethnic groups in America.

 Talk:Bad English - This Might Be A Wiki
When my 8th grade English teacher was teaching us "sentence diagraming," she told us that the verb following "There" should agree wih the 'real' subject of the sentence (in this case, "lot").
Yes, but the rules and structure of English remain the same- there's no such thing as "prose grammar", although, like you said, writers of prose and poetry are encouraged to stray from the path for the sake of authenticity, flavor, impact, etc. -Martorano
As for songs containing improper English overall, like poor sentence structure, the Bad English 'theme' is used to show improper grammar on a line-per-line basis.

Apparently Singlish is now a “recognized” slang of English that everyone knows what it is. Embarrassed, the Singaporean government is now trying to push for proper English to rescue its image.
Another funny (maybe funnier than Singlish) variation of English spoken in Asia is “Engrish“, really really terribly bad English spoken by the Japanese.
So mostly, Engrish is just a series of misunderstandings, misinterpretations or misuses of the English language by the Japanese when they attempt to reinterpret Japanese meanings using inappropriate English words or pronunciations.

 Common Errors in English
Speakers of other languages tend to make some specific errors that are uncommon among native speakers, so you may also want to consult sites dealing specifically with English as a second language (see http://www.cln.org/subjects/esl_cur.html and http://esl.about.com/education/adulted/esl/).
Dictionaries differ among themselves on how much guidance to usage they provide; but the goal of a usage guide like this is substantially different: to protect you against patterns which are regarded by substantial numbers of well-educated people as nonstandard.
If you search for the word “English” in Google, which gives a measure of popularity by ranking its results in order of the number of links other people have created to them, my site is number 2.

In the late '80s, ex-Journey guitarist Neal Schon teamed up with ex-Babys vocalist John Waite and other arena rock veterans to form Bad English.
One of the last supergroups of the decade, they made power ballads like there was no tomorrow, and they did it better than most because Waite could carry a tune and Schon created the power ballad prototype during his years in Journey.

You can’t fault James Cochrane’s subtitle: this is a slim volume of alphabetically arranged entries describing the mistakes that people often make with the language.
Despite the author’s disclaimer, my feeling is that he would like to be more authoritarian and prescriptive than his stated desire to avoid being purist might suggest.
Interestingly, he argues that the correct plural of referendum is the usual English one of adding an s, rather than referenda.
