Rock Songs with the Best Lyricsmisho961
The Top Ten
This is one of the best songs ever
Greatest lyrics, greatest song8 Comments
A song like Bohemian Rhapsody is legend, is inspiring for anyone and everyone. Chilling lyrics, amazing song through and through.
Freddie Mercury was a music genius. Respect for him forever. RIP
I had such a hard time choosing between this, Stairway to Heaven, and November Rain. How could the greatest song of all time not be chosen?
Strong lyrics along with great guitar work... its an absolute delight to hear this song9 Comments
Love this choice..."We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year... Running over the same old ground, and having found... The same old fears... Wish you were here"
Roger Waters and David Gilmour were masters at their respective crafts; Roger's artistry and skill with lyrics and David's artistry and skill with guitar; yet deeply dependent upon each other. This song poetically exposes a feeling of trepidation and insecurity they both shared in moving the band's creative styling forward and more in the direction of an exploding pop-rock culture, without the strong persona of their leader and friend Sid Barrett...
Water's lyrics are so powerful and telling of his own self-doubt of the decision to move away from Sid's daringly creative style in order to capitalize on the opportunities and riches of a more popular one... "did you exchange, a walk-on part in the war, for a lead role in a cage"
Pink Floyd (during this particular time) was as good as it gets! But ...more
The exact reason why this is one of my favourite PF songs. - Userguy44
The lyric says how good it would be if we bring back the human side, it's not a love song but a call to reason. "Wish you were here" is a poem that touches us in many ways. Pink Floyd used to be a mix beteween good writters and poets, we love the lyric at the first sight but "the water is always deeper than it reflects", Pink Ployd is same thing.
This is not acceptable... Waiting for the end and fake plastic trees are joke songs by joke bands... Linkin Park and Radiohead are "joke rock". I really wish I had written this song... Where are all the Floyd fans at? After Comfortably Numb and Echoes, this is the Floyd masterpiece... And if you are talking about lyrics, there are two passages, not that long, but every consonant and syllable matters... Great conversion of skill from Waters to Gilmour14 Comments
Truely awesome lyrics
Such inspirational lyrics. Always been one of my favorites. - Beatlesboy9
The lyrics of the song is very inspiring and very rhyming
The Greatest Hard Rock Band Ever
The best song ever
I love axl rose
Indeed best lyrics with best vocal and guitar solo.
But nothing last forever even cold november rain...
Missing my old Guns N' Roses band.
Great lyric to guide your life;
Half my life
Is in books written pages
Lived and learned from fools and
From sages Great way to describe getting older;
Great metaphor for getting older;
Every time that I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn - ddenny
Awesome song with the awesome guitar play..
I love aerosmith!
Amazing song but crawling has better lyrics...
Amazing song, amazing lyrics... Truly a brilliant. - 05yusuf09
Really great song and fantastic lyrics... I don't know if it belongs here?...but, I deeply felt it and live it in these days...
It should be in top 15 at least...
Beautiful lyrics. This song is great. - Userguy44
I agree with the other comment, except that this is the greatest song ever and arguably has the best lyrics, if any song is an image of peace and is the anthem of peace loving hippie movement it is this one.
WHY IS THIS BELOW SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT? I MEAN THIS IS THE SECOND GREATEST SONG EVER BUT IT DEFINETLY HAS THE GREATEST LYRICS!
I prefer working class hero though5 Comments
This should also be in the top 10 - LizardKing99
"Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
To be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
This world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
All will be revealed"
I MEAN COME ON GUYS...!
No. 1 hands down
Come on this is the best. Number one... Nothing even close
Better than stairway to heaven1 Comment
Anyone could apply this to one stage of their life or another. People who stop to listen to the meaning of the lyrics realise how powerful this song really is.
How isn’t this higher? - Userguy44
This song touch my heart
This song speaks to me on a religious level.
This band has so many great songs.
This song really speaks. It's lyrics are deep, and it just gives you the feels.
I was shoked there were 171 songs and this one was missing. Even if you don't like metal or Metallica, just read the lyrics. Deep, meaningful, philosophical. Full with social criticism yet very personal and emotional.
"You labelled me, I'll label you. So I dub the unforgiven."
"What I've felt, what I've known never shined through in what I've shown." - Metal_Treasure
AMAZING SONG. The lyrics have a good meaning if you listen at 50 seconds and finish the song. To me it talks about how people hide who they are because they are afraid of what the world has to say. I reccomend listening to the song
Didn't know so many people know this band... Yea skillet
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?
a d&d must
This was my anthem for 2012!
So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters
Just listening to the opening Rocks my Mind!
Encouraging lyrics. Should be 1
A good one.. Deserves a higher rank.
The lirics of dead by sunrise, as those of linkin park, are full of feelings... ut I think that this song in particular is abrolutely perfect!
The Man Who Sold the World Is a Bowie's Song! This is a Cover!
David Bowie wrote this. Credit goes to him. - PetSounds
This is a good song with awesome lyrics but technically it's by David Bowie not nirvana - jmepa123
well I proudly say that this song is one of the greatest songs ever made.. david bowies version's not as good as nirvana's.. and lyrically its awesomee3 Comments
Probably my favorite lyrical song ever.
This song just gives me chills!
"And no one called us to the land
And no one knows the where's or why's
Something stirs and something tries
Starts to climb toward the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can"
Yasss this song is bae
a song from another world !! - misho961
People are strange,
When you're a stranger,
Faces look ugly,
When you're alone.
Hear it when your girlfriend leaves you... - mattlol
This is the best it can get... This is no. 1 on the list... Makes me cry most of the time!
'Angels lie to keep control'3 Comments
She looks like the real thing. She tastes like the real thing. My fake plastic love.
Pink Floyd can't go wrong with lyrics. - Userguy44
Should be in the top ten..
How is this not on list. It is a legendary song with best lyrics. Cone on people, vote it up
I guess it is lack of Floyd knowledge4 Comments
Great lyrics which we can all relate to
Hotel California is one of the greatest lyrical pieces in rock history. They tell a story in a mesmerizing and eerie way and you can't help but get teleported to the dark desert highway while listening to these. Great song about addiction.
What does it mean anyway? - Userguy44
This needs to be on the list
These lyrics are just so perfectly absurd that you can't help to love it, and for me sometimes I feel as if I get what he's saying, the message or whatever... Even though there really isn't
I found it hard it's hard to find
Oh well whatever nevermind
Gotta love it.
Best rock song combined with a storytelling lyric. True heavy metal.
The lyrics in this song are chilling and executed perfectly by Bruce Dickinson
Why is this not higher? "I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time
Cause at 5 o'clock, they take me to the Gallows Pole
The sands of time for me are running low"
