Rock Songs with the Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
82Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo - Bloodhound Gang

I don't know another non-Bloodhound Gang song that is even close to being as metaphor-laden as this one. I might also have listed other songs by them, especially The Bad Touch or A Lap Dance Is So Much Better When The Stripper Is Crying, but these ones dabble too much in other genres.

Good luck in finding new methaphors for sex... This song must've used 'em all up.

83Thank You - Led Zeppelin
84Whispers In the Dark - Skillet

This is song with best lyrics from my side... This song is of comatose album... Every song of this album has great lyrics.. This album shows hardwork done by John coopoer... There are many legendary bands in this list... They are good also... But new stuff of rock and metal is not rated and old stuff is overrated... Just listen to this song along with 3 more songs of skillet
Falling inside the black

85Falling Inside the Black - Skillet

In pane I listen this song.. Its the song which has best lyrics... Please listen to it

86Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Opening lyrics just awesome

87Push It - Tool
88Seize the Day - Avenged Sevenfold

An amazing song with astounding lyrics! "Seize the day, or die regretting the time you lost, it's empty and cold without you here, too many people to ache over..."

89Panama - Van Halen

The Amazing rhyme that goes through out the song is perfect with The guitar riff in the back is awesome! MY favorite lyrics R "i've got the feel for the wheel"

90Berliner Star - Robbie Williams
91Holiday - Green Day

A great Song with a great message. The lyrics may be unclear when you hear them the first time, but if you listen more closely, you can understand all the metaphors. And then you will understand the full meaning of this song. My all time favourite. - SaltatioSomnium
