Rock Band With Best Lyricsrahulmondal Which Rock Band do you think has most number of songs with better lyrics?With which you can relate yourself and get lost in them...................
The Top Ten
Their albums are nothing like I've heard before. While there are better songs out there musically, the lyrics are unmatched with this band. The albums are like well thought out and vivid images being portrayed through music. It's pure genius. Whether the albums/songs being about the former Syd Barrett, war, etc. I heard the album The Final Cut recently and it completely blew me away. The stuff they write are genius. Definitely number 1!
I vote Pink Floyd for a better world. Wake up you people. Read the animals, read the wall, read the wish you here, read all. Read and then listen what you read because all you see and you feel in the end is dark.
Time, Dogs, Echoes, Wish You Were Here, Comfortably Numb, Entire Final Cut Album, Breathe, Sheep, Shine On, Money, Hey You, The Trial, Us and Them, In The Flesh, One of My Turns, Pigs on The Wing, Brain Damage/Eclipse, Mother, The Thin Ice, Nobody Home, Astronomy Domine, Learning to Fly, Pigs and many more songs with amazing lyrics. #1 Without a doubt. - XoTiC_iB
I will say three things
Wish you were here
Umm. Umm. Linkin Park? I just quietly died inside... Sure they have some lyrical meaning but its mostly emo crap, bands like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Green Day, even the Rolling Stones have much more creative and meaningful lyrics. Beatles lyrics were treated like gospel back when they were in their prime. - KingofSnails42
Definitely cast my vote for these guys. All of their songs have meanings that most people can relate to. I especially prefer their song Iridescent which tells us not to get occupied by sadness and frustration, just let it go and live on in life.
Just take a look at "somewhere I belong" lyrics... it's like you're reading philosophy of life! Also "in the End" or "What I've done" they're appropriate for this position! The best!
Just listen to their words and you'll immediately give them your voteV 19 Comments

Youe don't have to be an expert to judge this legendary band by their lyrics. Well, in their early days, they usually sang about love between a boy and a girl. In their last days, the sang about love between people with different opinions. Just "A Day in the Life" is a masterpiece, because of John's lyrics, for example: "I read the news today, oh boy, about a lucky man who made the grade." And I'm not even mentioning "The Long And The Winding Road", which is a brilliant song as for the lyrics, for the music, too.
All the Beatles members are very good with lyrics, especially John Lennon and (sometimes) Paul McCartney.
Best thing about their lyrics is that there are always multiple ways to perceive it! You think they are singing about a girl, but they are singing to your soul and once you notice that, it's hard to not like Breaking benjamin
Their lyrics are really amazing and meaningful... Such as Dear Agony song. - 05yusuf09
Their lyrics get so meaningful that they get all emotional when they play some of their songs.
Okay, but not as good as Twenty One Pilots, Poets Of The Fall, or most of the other top 50 bands here. - alexinkievV 3 Comments
Rush should be number 1 hands down. I have listened to every other band mentioned in this list and their lyrics are good but aren't as good as Rush lyrics. Rush lyrics are like listening to poetry. The choice of words and rhyming the words makes them so great. For example their song loosing it:
"The dancer slows her frantic pace in pain and desperation. Her aching limbs and downcast face aglow with perspiration."
Neil Peart is probably one of the best if not the best lyricist ever.
The only reason these guys aren't #1 is because not a lot of people listen to them. By far the best lyrics I have ever heard and never fail to impress me album after album
Every songs lyrics post Fly by Night album are faultless
"If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice" - Freewill
- Neil Peart
Good lyrics, shouldn't be ahead of red hot chili peppers though.
Not a bad place. Maybe could be a little higher, but not bad.V 1 Comment
I personally can't stand punk for the most part. But rise against is an exception. While the instrumental aspect of their music is rather simplistic the lyrical content is nothing less than pure genius. The only other artist out there that I can think can possibly compare would be eminem, a product of another genre I'm no particular find of
If you've listened to their songs you can understand a lot of their music has a lot of meanings such as the song "audience of one" refers to that one person can have a lot of influence and power if tried or given to
Their lyrics are so deep, bands as Green Day and Linkin Park would drown in them... No seriously, Tim McIlrath is a punk poet and in combination with his band's mighty sound a force to be reckoned with
One of the best all time for consistently good lyrics, all written by one man. Tim mcilrath is unbelievable.V 8 Comments
Well to be true in my opinion Except for some songs like stairway to Heaven their lyrics are not good. They use the word baby like in so many songs and those songs end with no proper meaning. It seems as if some forlorn teenager is writing those lyrics and someone is just screaming them. That's just ans opinion so, don't start with fan of they are greatest they are revolution. Just because they were popular doesn't mean they will be liked by everyone. And just because they produced a few good songs doesn't mean all of their songs shoukd be called gold. Get over with bind fan stuff. Enjoy music don't claim it or get annoyed with criticism.
Some stupids think that Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" has a subliminal diabolic message... they are jealous of the song because they realized that the lyrics of the song are just great and amazing... they wanted to hide these awesome lyrics with a supposed "message"
Led Zeppelin is a perfect band, these four guys are great in their work!
I think Led Zeppelin has really great lyrics, and if you don't think so... you like commercial music like hip hop and pop! - rock2metal
Kashmir and stairway to heaven, up to the mark. I can't even think this list is complete without Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. Lyrics must be match with the music. And this band is maestro for this quality. Its right now on 8th because its not easy to digest this band too easily.. :D
They made songs about what love really means to be able to spend your whole life with someone and never want to leave them.V 3 Comments
The lyrics are far from straightforward and annoyingly repetitive. Just listen to Nothing Else Matters. Or even Fade to Black. Beautiful lyrics, great lyrics, awesome lyrics.
Who said metallica doesn't deserve to be on the list? ARE you insane? What about nothing else matters//fade to black//unforgiven//sad but true?
They definitely have their own style that works with the music, BUT the lyrics aren't GREAT like some of these other artists - alexinkiev
Enter Sandman, One, Nothing Else Matters, and even Until It Sleeps represent Metallica's excellent lyricism. - naFrovivuSV 2 Comments
I got into this band bcos the boy I've had a crush on for like 8 months has them on his Facebook likes and I listened to them and I cried.. a lot
Lyrics on Appetite for Destruction may revolve around "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll", and they are very efficient in doing so. But Illusions and Chinese Democracy have very profound and interesting lyrics. Axl has really matured as a lyricist and songwriter, and got better as a person through the years.
I don't think Axl whining about women and LA counts as good lyrics
I love Guns N Roses, but Axl Rose is the biggest ass in music history.
NO! This band is awful! Their lyrics are ridiculously bad! Who is voting on these polls?! - chippchipp1V 2 Comments
Jim Morrison was the EPIC POET of his time
Them and Arctic Monkeys should be in the top 5 in my opinion
Better lyrics than lyrics of every band here
Most poetic lyrics. - UndistinguishedV 1 Comment
Green Day IS LIFE! THANK THE JESUS OF SUBURBIA. Listen closely to their lyrics, there are hidden meanings. And they're a great story as an album. American Idiot and Dookie have the best lyrics by far.
I don't understand why on earth Linkin Park is 1#! It's obvious that GD must be 1#! M/
Lyrics on the songs of 21st cb and American idiot are enough
Green Day should at least be in the top three, if not, number 1.
Their songs have are so meaningful.
Just Listen to 'Jesus of Suburbia', 'Holiday', '21 Guns', 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' and 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'.
"My heart is broke, but I have some glue.
Help me inhale and mend it with you,
we'll float around, and hang out on clouds,
then we'll come down... have a hangover... "
His lyrics were, all at once - soft, heartbreaking, angstful and bitter. The sarcastic pop-tone of Cobain's lyrics shouldn't be overlooked. Sarcasam is hard to get across sucessfully in lyrics. - Uzzy
You the hell puts Metallica on this list? I guess they're great lyrics when you're 13.
I think kurt cobain definitely deserves number one if rhe current one is Linkin Park.
I'm not like them but I can pretndV 2 Comments
Townshend's lyrics manage to be both extremely catchy as well as deceptively incisive. The Who blow away Zeppelin and many other groups in this department.
