Top 10 Rock Songs with the Worst Lyrics

Rock songs that generally have bad lyrics. That range from laughably bad to insultingly bad.

The Top Ten

1 Control - Puddle of Mudd

I like Puddle of Mudd but the lyrics to this song... are just wow.
" I love the way you rake my skin
I feel the hate you place inside
I need to get your voice out of my head
Cause I'm that guy you'll never find
I think you know all of the rules
There's no expressions on your face
I'm hope that some day you will let me go
Release me from my dirty cage." - Actual lyrics from the song.

2 Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie

So offensive

3 Stripped, Raped and Strangled - Cannibal Corpse

... Cannibal Corpse proves that they're bad at lyrics this song is no exception.

4 Get Stoned - Hinder

" Just hear me out
If it's not perfect, I'll perfect it till my heart explodes
I highly doubt
That I can make it through another one of your episodes
Lashing out
One of the petty moves you pull before you lose control
You wear me out
But it's all right now
Let's go home and get stoned
We could end up making love instead of misery
Go home and get stoned
'Cause the sex is so much better when you're mad at me." - Actual lyrics from the song I'm not kidding.

5 Eat You Alive - Limp Bizkit

Worse lyrics than Nookie... which is not accomplishment.

6 Everywhere I Go - Hollywood Undead

...Listen to the sample I won't go in depth why.

7 The Drug In Me Is You - Falling In Reverse

Ugh... the lyrics are so damn bad they make cringe.

8 Last Resort - Papa Roach

To prove how bad the lyrics are here's a parody of the song.
I want to shoot myself in the face, this is my last retort.
Whiny vocals, no complexity
Don't care if I sound like a emo, or a total failure
This is my last retort.

9 Endless, Nameless - Nirvana

"Think I'm turning Japanese."

10 Nookie - Limp Bizkit

It's a Limp Bizkit song... enough said.

I've heard a few of these, most I have not. Judging by the former, congrats. You've assembled some of the most hideous lyrics I'm aware of. Off the top of my head, I can't think of one more miserable. If I happen across something, no small feat I'm thinking, I'll stop back. - Ned964
