    I think that Linkin Park's lyrics are generally pathetic :lol:


    Max Bemis writes awesome lyrics though.

    I also think that FOB have some good lyrics and Forever The Sickest Kids.


    I usually judge bands I like on lyrics because I think there's gotta be some meaning there.



    I'd say one of the best lyricists around at the moment is Lupe Fiasco though.

    AFI has far and away the best lyrics for me.

    Lupe Fiasco's raps are so deep and intricate.

    Brand New is also very deep.

    Not a band but I gotta go with Common or Black Thought from The Roots.

    EDIT: I'm sorry, but Linkin Park? I know it's your opinion but I write better lyrics when I'm taking a shit.

    Definitely. Common has his moments as well.

    Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. He writes about some pretty novel things, at least.

    Against Me!. Fantomas as well, that's poetry right there.

    This is not to attack anyone but I am just wondering if they can post an example of Queen lyrics they think are really good? I don't mind Queen, but always found their lyrics ranged from poor to mediocre and am hoping to see why some people love them. Thanks in advance :)

    Dude, Queen has a lot of amazing songs with great lyrics, it's hard to just pick one as an example. One of the songs that always pull at my heartstrings by them, is Bohemian Rhapsody, and it's both lyrically and instrumentally.

    And y'know, listen to the song while reading. :p

    Theres no time for us
    Theres no place for us
    What is this thing that builds our dreams yet slips away
    From us

    Who wants to live forever
    Who wants to live forever....?

    Theres no chance for us
    Its all decided for us
    This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

    Who wants to live forever
    Who wants to live forever?

    Who dares to love forever?
    When love must die

    But touch my tears with your lips
    Touch my world with your fingertips
    And we can have forever
    And we can love forever
    Forever is our today
    Who wants to live forever
    Who wants to live forever?
    Forever is our today

    Who waits forever anyway?
