And they say eminem has bad lyrics...

People always complain about violent and sexual lyrics, but what about the true crap ones? My friend bought this simple plan cd the other day and I was conned into listening it and here's just an example...

Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With the big fake smiles and stupid lies
While deep inside you're bleeding

No you don't know what it's like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what it's like to be like me


or maybe...

I never could’ve seen this far
I never could’ve seen this coming
It seems like my world’s falling apart, Yeah
Why is everything so hard
I don’t think that I can deal with the things you said
It just won’t go away


Anyways, you get the drift. Why then, all the talk of bad lyrics when shit like this is not even thought of. Think about it, whats worse. A song about killing somebody, or a song that seems to do nothing less than promote teen angst.

    I heard Eminem's latest on MTV last night, talking about no more blood for oil and such, actually quite good I thought.

    Yes, thats the one, I thought it was alright, not one of his best, personally I like the slightly jokey stuff he does with D12.

    I expect this to be one of Stressed's signatures within the week.

    When it comes to bad lyrics, you really can't beat the streets.

    "I'm not trying to pull you
    even though I would like to
    I think you are very fit
    you're fit but my gosh don't you know it."

    Why do people buy this dross?

    I think it's not so much that the lyrics are "bad" (evil, sexist, racist, ageist etc) but they actually are bad (no talent).

    Not to forget The Street's wonderful song 'Blinded by the lights' with it's superb lyrical content...

    "That's proper rank - that tastes like hairspray." :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    lol. A few years ago, a song which said little more than "I suffer, I suffer, I suffer, I suffer, I suffer, I suffer a lot" was a HUGE success here. I was totally disgusted.

    the streets are obviously pre-emo rapcore with a post-ironic modernist twist also demonstrated in the likes of glc

    and one of their songs has some awesome trumpets too



    oh and as for simple plan, who would expect anything else from the guys that gave ya 'i'm sorry i can't be perrrrrfect.'
