Rock Songs with the Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Don't Cry - Guns N Roses
82 Aerials - System of a Down
83 Vicarious - Tool
84 Whispers 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

85 The Ghost of You - My Chemical Romance

It takes a lot to produce a song so beautiful and captivating in the rock genre. This song is a lovely tribute to WWI veterans and My Chemical Romance brought me to tears with this one. They performed with such conviction, and they couldn't have done better.

86 Man Machine - Robbie Williams
87 A Little Piece of Heaven - Avenged Sevenfold
88 Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd
89 Low Man's Lyric - Metallica
90 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

91 We Are Nowhere and It's Now - Bright Eyes
92 Space Oddity - David Bowie
93 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.

94 Anthem of the Angels - Breaking Benjamin
95 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.

96 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

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

97 My Immortal - Evanescence
98 The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
99 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.

100 Thank You - Led Zeppelin
