Rock Songs with the Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
82 Low Man's Lyric - Metallica
83 Six 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

84 We Are Nowhere and It's Now - Bright Eyes
85 Space Oddity - David Bowie
86 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold
87 Have 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.

88 Anthem of the Angels - Breaking Benjamin
89 My Iron Lung - Radiohead

This song is about their hit song creep on their debut album. The iron lung is a reference to the song being the only thing keeping the band alive. Fantastic song and lyrics.

90 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

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

91 My Immortal - Evanescence
92 The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
93 Foxtrot 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.

94 Thank You - Led Zeppelin
95 Falling Inside the Black - Skillet

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

96 Civil War - Guns N' Roses

Opening lyrics just awesome

My hands are tied
For, all I've seen has changed my mind
But still the wars go on, as the years go by
With no love of God or human rights
And all these dreams are swept aside
By bloody hands of the hypnotized
Who carry the cross of homicide
And history bears the scars of our civil wars

I don't need your civil war
It feeds the rich, while it buries the poor
Your power hungry, sellin' soldiers in a human grocery store
(Ain't that fresh? )
I don't need your civil war - zxm

97 Push It - Tool
98 Seize 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..."

99 Panama - 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"

100 Berliner Star - Robbie Williams
