Rock Songs with the Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61The Trees - Rush
62My Ashes - Porcupine Tree
63The Ghost of You - My Chemical Romance

It takes a lot to produce a song so beautiful and captivating in the rock genre. This song is a lovely tribute to WWI veterans and My Chemical Romance brought me to tears with this one. They performed with such conviction, and they couldn't have done better.

64Man Machine - Robbie Williams
65The Message from Dr. Light - The Megas
66Blackbird - Alter

"The willow it weeps today
The breeze from the distance is calling your name
Unfurl your dark wings and wait
Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away..."

67Don't Cry - Guns N Roses
68Aerials - System of a Down
69Vicarious - Tool
70Low Man's Lyric - Metallica
71Six Degrees of Separation - The Script

The degrees are really relatable. And Danny's voice is amazing. Great lyrics. Their No Good In Goodbye has meaningful lyrics too

Best lyrics ever!
Listen to it then you will know what I mean

72We Are Nowhere and It's Now - Bright Eyes
73A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold
74Have a Cigar - Pink Floyd

This is one of the songs that distinguishes the Floyd from other bands. They weren't in it for the money and were against the people that were.

75My Iron Lung - Radiohead
76Down With the Sickness - Disturbed

This song has the best and craziest lyrics ever! Hell, it needs to be in the top ten!

77Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
78My Immortal - Evanescence
79The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
80Peace Sells - Megadeth

What do you mean I don't believe in God?
Talk to him every day
What do you mean I don't support your system?
I go to court when I have to
What do you mean I can't get to work on time?
Got nothing better to do
What do you mean I don't pay my bills?
Why do you think I'm broke? Huh?
