But how exactly does "Dead" become "Dude"? You couldn't possibly have swapped letters between words, because all the other letters in the other words remain unchanged! So how does "A" become "U"??

I'll let it go this one time, but from now on we should play by the hard and fast rule of using the exact same letters! Mind you, we can scramble them however we see fit, but we should keep the exact same letters and the exact same number of letters...
and in your original layout of rules:

I thought you were being flexible. That's why I changed an A into a U (so I could make Dude and not, say, Dade). I'm not sure what you meant by "the odd spoonerism," and I didn't take the time to look it up.

But to make it correct (and you are correct about your guess), let's change from Greatful Dude (greatful was a giveaway anyway) to "At Drag Fueled" if you allow scramble by all letters in artist name, see below.
