Top 10 Best Lyricists of All TimeMarcopwnzatdrums
The Contenders: Page 9
I am a fan of every genre, rock and metal being my favorites, and there have been MANY great lyricists. Mostly everyone in the top ten deserves to be in there, but Pete is an amazing poet. He's witty and has very deep and meaningful lyrics. I know a lot of people probably don't like him, but just listen to his lyrics in Fall Out Boy. They're great.
Pete Wentz writes really deep lyrics which are full of meaning. There's probably at least one Fall Out Boy song that you can relate to completely, they're so great and well written. And I love the movie references in the titles!
I would say that Wentz definitely deserves to be on this list. A song I that always get's me is "What a Catch, Donnie" on the album "Folie a Deux", a song he wrote for his best friend and Fall Out Boy's lead vocalist Patrick Stump
"I got troubled thoughts and the self-esteem to match, what a catch"
Insanely underrated. It's unbelievable he's only one place ahead from Taylor Swift.
Why is HE on the list, come on people the guy is so over rated! He said "Rap is the new Rock'N'Roll, And I'm the best of the best." The dude ISN'T a good, never mind great, Lyricists! He writes meaningless lyrics... I can think of 10 better lyricists off the top of my head. (In no specific order. )
10. Nikki Sixx
9. Robert Plant
8. Axl Rose
7. Izzy Stradlin
6. Eddie Vedder
5. Jake E. Lee
4. Billy Joel
3. David Bowie
2. Jim Morrison
1. Jimi Hendrix
Hell even Taylor Swift is better! I mean I don't really like her music, But at least she's talented, And doesn't think she's better than anyone everyone before and after her... (I mean he named one of his albums "Yeezus"... REALLY KANYE?!?!
Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.
So casually cruel in the name of being honest.
I'm a crumpled up piece of paper lying here
'Cause I remember it all, all, all... too well.
Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it
I'd like to be my old self again, but I'm still trying to find it
After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own
Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone
Why is she even on this list.
She needs to be top ten, for sure
She is best...her songs are so catchy,she pour her feeling in her songsV 1 Comment
Are you guys serious, she has more monster hits than any five people combined on this list!
I just looked this guy up on Wikipedia and apparently his name means Thank You God Always. Really? Also his 3rd album was named, Ready for this...
Yes, He stole the name from the Eagles, If he even knows who the Eagles are, Probably another rapper who thinks he's better than anyone else on this planet and knows nothing about music.
If anyone actually votes for this...
I'm the son of rage and love
The Jesus of Suburbia
From the bible of none of the above
On a steady diet of
Soda pop and Ritalin
No one ever died for my sins in hell
As far as I can tell
At least the ones I got away with
And there's nothing wrong with me
This is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
That don't believe in me
Get my television fixed
Sitting on my crucifix
The living room or my private womb
While the Moms and Brads are away
To fall in love and fall in debt
To alcohol and cigarettes
And Mary Jane
To keep me insane,
Doing someone else's cocaine
At the center of the Earth
In the parking lot
Of the 7-11 where I was taught
The motto was just a lie
It says home is where your heart is
But what a shame
Cause everyone's heart
Doesn't beat the same
It's beating out of time
Look at me and tell me that's not the greatest lyric you've ever heard
Time of Your Life is probably the most meaningful songs I've ever heard!
Taylor Swift is over him. I hate this world.
You know there's something wrong with the world when Billie is only 7 places above Justin Bieber.
Billie is an amazing lyricist. So many other artists on this list are known for their media presence, and not their lyrics. Billie is probably most famous for his lyrics and that is one reason why Green Day are such a successful band.
You have got to be kidding me! No Bryan Adams! Really?
K'naan grew up invelloped in the portent mix of generations of Somali poets and urban rappers, bringing together the best of both world - social and political consciousness, and raw, personal story telling with some of the best flow in the game. His first two albums are pure poetry, featuring songs like "Fatima", "Waving Flag", and "People like me".
The master himself this guy has more experience than anyone I know if it wasn't for him rap wouldn't be at this standart so yeah dre is awesome
Yo 5'9 is a great rapper not the best but he lies among the best he even dissed kanye west on a track with em just so he ain't scared but he will be if you got em on your side..
He's been in the game for a while now and I think he is tight give him any beat and he wil make it work.. Yez that's nelly 4 you
I Think you're on the wrong list dude... This is "Best lyricists of all time" Not "Top 10 worst artists". Can all you musically illiterate people saying that rap is the greatest genera of music please, go somewhere else. The only decent, Famous, rapper is Eminem, That I know of anyway.
Hour got swag but other than that he is na average rapper
I'm so sophisticated get that song and you will no why he is on this list
133? Pun's lyrics are on the level if not above that of Biggie. This guy should even be above Nirvana, at least.
Wow... Okay... Umm... Who ever put this guy on the list is just as much of a moron as Justin Bieber is. I'm sorry but I don't think he's even a moderately talented lyricist, or artist for that matter. He isn't a good singer, Also I don't think he even writes his own music... When he asks his lyricists to write his music he must say: "I want you to write the worst song you could possibly write, and I'll sing it with my high pitched annoying voice and all my musically illiterate fan girls will love it because I've brain washed them into believing I'm talented." I swear it must be something close to that, or they're just some groupies who got so high they thought they were a lyricist.
He is the worst I ever heard
Neutral Milk Hotel has some of the most powerful lyrics I have ever heard. The blend of emotion and imagery creates visions inside of my mind that bring me to tears.
" Oh how the notes all bend and reach above the trees"
