Has anyone heard of The Locust?

Another dreadful band in the same vain as CC. The album I have in here right now, has 23 'songs' on - and lasts in total just over 20 minutes....

Here is one lovely titled example:-

Priest With The Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Get Out Of My Bed


"Santa Claus hijack, fuck-a-rama
always getting a good look
at the meat rack
Before shooting blanks into a loaded crowd

Hypothetical hunger is not directly proportional to hypothetical appetite"

Cannibal Corpse are hilarious in an odd kind of way. I mean, the name itself is just outrageously funny, isn't it?

I read somewhere they write their lyrics by sitting in a group and thinking of the grossest things possible and putting them down.

How quickly we forget.....


Hold on little girl
Show me what he's done to you
Stand up little girl
A broken heart can't be that bad
When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you
So come on baby come on over
Let me be the one to show you

I'm the one who wants to be with you
Deep inside I hope you feel it too
Waited on a line of greens and blues
Just to be the next to be with you

Build up your confidence
So you can be on top for once
wake up who cares about
Little boys that talk too much
I've seen it all go down
Your game of love was all rained out
So come on baby, come on over
Let me be the one to hold you

Chorus

Why be alone when we can be together baby
You can make my life worthwhile
And I can make you start to smile

When it's through, it's through
Fate will twist the both of you
So come on baby come on over
Let me be the one to show you



To Be With You by Mr. Big


Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it.....

I'm going to make one pathetic attempt, and one only to get back to the original thread with the Police "Doo doo doo, daa daa daa". Thank you, you can all go back to the rotting anuses and eating entrails stuff now.

We had joy we had fun
We had seasons in the sun
But the stars we could reach were just starfish on the beach.

'Le Moribond' was a great song, too.

We were already on topic. Why do you think we were talking about rotting anuses, etc.? Certainly those can't be called good lyrics.

i was a little frightened at that point and just wanted to end the conversation. and i steered well clear of him after that, too. if i saw him walk into the store, i made sure i was 'busy' in the back. i worked with a lot of guys at the store, and it didn't help that they followed me around for weeks after that saying, 'you're really pretty,' in that creepy voice.


sorry, i guess i should keep this on topic. um, ok, bad lyrics...

a mole, living in a hole
digging up my soul
going down, excavation

not nearly as bad a cannibal corpse but still, they're quite terrible, aren't they?

Not really. It just suggests that you've lost touch with your soul, heart, or whatever you want to call your spiritual element, and want to reconnect.

The likes of Elevation were never meant to be lyrically great songs...so i never understand why people keep going on about how bad its lyrics are ...its meant to be just a great fun rocker...something to jump about to having a laugh, and maybe as 2hearts says its about reconnecting with your heart/soul....laughter is soul food...tis a good song to do that

....and on the note of bad lyrics, anybody ever recall a song by a dutch group...'No, no, n-n-no, no no no, there's no limit'...constantly repeated with a very awful awful awful rap in it...not only was it not fun it was irritating

now now, if you're gonna bring Cannibal Corpse into this, it's only a short step to GWAR...... Sexcuse me!!

...but getting back to stuff that isn't intentionally cringeworthy...

..George Michael's "Father Figure" gives me the *creeps*.

but Cannibal Corpse and The Locust are all about that

you can't blame them for "bad lyrics" (actually by 'Safety Second, Body Last' by The Locust is a great album, noisy and fast), because their topics for songs are different, isn't about what wonderful the world is or what sad you are because you broke up with you girlfriend/boyfriend

for a school project I will use a Cannibal Corpse or Carcass song

The vast majority of teachers will just think you're trying to get attention, and see this stuff as childish and immature.

I've already made the point earlier in this thread that these lyrics are indeed piss poor. Maybe not 100% of them, but it doesn't take long to find an entire verse or two that are as boneheaded as any other lyrics posted here.
