'Untitled' by Simple Plan is bloody awful. It's like the poetry I used to write when I was fourteen.

Worst individual line though...

Scroll to the second chorus. Pity, considering otherwise I think it's pretty brilliant.

I hate to do this because I love this band to death, but Little James by Oasis is an embarassment....

Live for your toys
even though they make noise
have u ever played with plasticine
even tried a trampoline...

the saving grace is that musically, the song sounds pretty good...

Yertle, I don't think I've ever heard that song. Yikes... What album is it on?

B-side to 'La Tristesse Durera'.

I only have it on low quality mp3...hmm I might as well upload it.

I do think apart from that one bit the rest of the lyrics are more or less well-written. Musically it's a bit cock rock Metallica-lite but oh, well.

I love those lyrics, particularly the way Liam sings them.

It suits the song. Simplistic, like little James would have been. Being a young kid, the lyrics shouldn't be to cryptic and contrived.

Now Iggy Pop is a LEGEND and every word is poetry. Well not this manure: Read and weep!

"Shades"

You gave me a present
The paper was blue and green
I unwrapped it with pleasure
These are the best shades I've ever seen
You can be my girlfriend
Forever and a day
I never thought I was worth much
Or that anyone would treat me this way

CHORUS
I'm not
The kind of guy
Who dresses like a king
And a really fine pair of shades
Means everything
And the light that blinds my eyes
Shines from you
It makes me come in the night
It makes me swim with delight
I like this pain
I like this mirror
I like these shades

I could have had a problem
I might have never followed through
The other guys are in trouble
They wouldn't listen to a girl like you
These shades say something
I'll bet they cost a lot
I hope I don't break 'em
I hope we don't break up

'Used To Love Her' by GNR.

Thanks for the info and link, yertle. I agree that the song in and of itself is good. I've never read American Psycho, but maybe reading it would illuminate that particular lyric. Perhaps it's directly from the book? Just a theory.

there was this hideous Zeppelin wannabe band in the 80s called 'Kingdom Come'... they had this one song "close to you" that was supposed to be all dramatic and stuff and I would fall on the floor laughing every time I heard it because of this fucking ridiculous line in it...

"I wanna be the tissue for your tears.."


OHFORCHRISSAKESNOW!!!!!

If you're bringing up U2 songs, you cannot have not listened to much country, hip-hop, hair metal, or death metal. There are songs in these genres that are true crimes against humanity.

For example, take Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman". Nevermind Elevation and Electrical Storm, this makes "Is That All?" look like a lyrical masterpiece.


Well, I ain't never been the Barbie doll type
No, I can't swig that sweet Champagne, I'd rather drink beer all night
In a tavern or in a honky tonk or on a four-wheel drive tailgate
I've got posters on my wall of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait
Some people look down on me, but I don't give a rip
I'll stand barefooted in my own front yard with a baby on my hip
'Cause I'm a redneck woman
I ain't no high class broad
I'm just a product of my raising
I say, 'hey ya'll' and 'yee-haw'
And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every Charlie Daniels song
So here's to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me get a big 'hell yeah' from the redneck girls like me, hell yeah
Victoria's Secret, well their stuff's real nice
But I can buy the same damn thing on a Wal-Mart shelf half price
And still look sexy, just as sexy as those models on TV
No, I don't need no designer tag to make my man want me
Well, you might think I'm trashy, a little too hardcore
But in my neck of the woods I'm just the girl next door
I'm a redneck woman
I ain't no high class broad
I'm just a product of my raising
I say, 'hey y'all' and 'yee-haw'
And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every Tanya Tucker song
So here's to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me get a big 'hell yeah' from the redneck girls like me, hell yeah
Hey, I'm a redneck woman
And I ain't no high class broad
I'm just a product of my raising
And I say, 'hey y'all' and 'yee-haw'
And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long
And I know all the words to every ol' Bocephus song
So here's to all my sisters out there keeping it country
Let me get a big 'hell yeah' from the redneck girls like me, hell yeah
Hell yeah, hell yeah
Hell yeah
I said hell yeah!

, wolfeden. Nice avatar, by the way.

That Gretchen Wilson song...I'm from Oklahoma, and that song was absolutely HUGE there.
