i think that bands today lack the conviction to touch on bigger issues. it's not entirely thier fault though. the focus has to be on getting heard above the din of "popular" culture. novelty (acts) rule and you gotta have a "gimmick" to get your single on that iPod..

inside of ten years the whole concept of the "album" as a way for any artist to get their music to the masses will be dead.

the age of the single has returned.

anyway, most of the artist i think of are either early mtv or pre-date it altogether.

I agree. Stipe though admittingly never wrote any true love songs until Out of Time. I can't think of any moments where Cobain went into politics off the top of my head, but its been awhile. But the only thing about Stipe and Cobain(I think are very similar lyricists) can get lost in the obscure. I think they may hide behind absurdity sometimes...at least Stipe has admitted it.

You're kidding about Cobain, right? I love Nirvana and all, but Bono is a much better lyricist. And don't judge by the past two albums(which I like, but are lyrically inferior to past records for the most part).

Cobian never wrote anything that could match up lyrically to JT or AB or Pop.
