Rock Songs with the Best Lyrics


The Contenders: Page 5

81 My Iron Lung - Radiohead
82 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

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

83 My Immortal - Evanescence
84 The Kids Aren't Alright - The Offspring
85 Peace Sells - Megadeth

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?

86 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.

87 Thank You - Led Zeppelin
88 Falling Inside the Black - Skillet

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

89 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

90 Push It - Tool
91 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..."

92 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"

93 Berliner Star - Robbie Williams
94 Holiday - Green Day

A great Song with a great message. The lyrics may be unclear when you hear them the first time, but if you listen more closely, you can understand all the metaphors. And then you will understand the full meaning of this song. My all time favourite. - SaltatioSomnium

95 Gimme Shelter - Rolling Stones
96 Somewhere Only We Know - Keane
97 Where is My Mind? - Pixies
98 The Nobodies - Marilyn Manson
