42EvanescenceEvanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.
43Goo Goo Dolls

Definitely the most emotional, authentic, complex and powerful lyrics any single band has consistently written. One of the few truly talented "rock" bands in existence. Pure guitar-driven beauty.

44ColdplayColdplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed more.

The have very power lyrics. Should be much higher on this list.

They have some of the best lyrics ever!
For example:
"And I could write a song a hundred miles long, well that's where I belong, and you belong with me." (Swallowed in the Sea)

45Iron MaidenIron Maiden are an English heavy metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. They were known for some big hits such as The Trooper, and The Number of the Beast, and as of 2015, the band sold over 90 million albums.

Why is Maiden down here?

Obviously no one here has listened to "Hallowed be thy Name" or "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" or "Dance of Death" or "Dream of Mirrors" or ANY IRON MAIDEN SONG WILL BLOW YOUR MIND WITH THEIR LYRICS.

46The SmithsThe Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.

Their lyrics are hauntingly beautiful.
"I know it's over
And it never really began
But in my heart it was so real"

"And when darkness lifts and the room is bright
I'll still be by your side
For you are all that matters
And I'll love you to till the day I die
There never need be longing in your eyes"

Why the smiths is not on the list?!

47Asking AlexandriaAsking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist more.

51System of a DownSystem of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American rock group from Glendale, California. The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. more.

They should be top ten. Darron and Serj make sure that the songs have true meaning most of the time. The rest of the time they just wanna have fun and really don't care about opinions. They do what they think is right, but get pushed to the side as hippies.

52Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

I hate to say it because I love Three Days Grace, but sometimes they either go too mainstream and don't think about lyrics enough, or they try too hard and lose meaning

56Pearl JamPearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. more.

Their is a Pearl Jam song for everyone and all of their songs have truly amazing lyrics.
"I know I was born I know that I'll die the I between is mine."
"I know someday you'll have a beautiful life under somebody else sky but why can't it be mine."
If once I could feel loved, oh stare back at me."
"All the advantages this life's got on me picture a cup in the middle of the sea."

I mean, like, seriously? Pearl Jam not in the top 5?
Is this list trolling us all?
World wide suicide, Black, Just breathe, Marker in the sand. I could go on forever.
For me, they are the best. Hands down.

57Panic! At The DiscoPanic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

As a part of the "Emo Trinity" (along with My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy) it's without a doubt that it belongs higher up the list based purely on the massive subculture of scene and emo kids it generated and inspired.

Panic! Saved my soul. Ryan Ross's lyrics were so filled with emotion and just so ' weird! It's hard to decipher the meaning but what's so good is that you can interpret them however you wish. Isn't that what its all about?

58Alice in ChainsAlice in Chains is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1987 by guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell and original lead vocalist Layne Staley.

Really Linkin Park first, our society ladies and gentleman


Marvelous, rich in words, complexly, and strong, performed by the giant Fish. - Vacchus
