Fantastic choice. Absolutely belongs on this list. Not all that ecstatic that it is only one spot above a Taylor Swift song. I feel this song tells a much deeper story than most of the songs on here. As far as lyrics go this song embodies a struggle all us human beings go through.
"Everyone trying to be trife, never face the consequences
You probably only did a month for minor offenses
Ask a n**** doing life if he had another chance
But then again there's always the wicked that knew in advance
Dance forever with the devil on a cold cell block
But that's what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top
There's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot"
Tells a great story, this song is the most underrated song of all time, and it goes the same with Immortal Technique. The brilliance of this song makes it one of the greatest not only Rap song of all time, but Best Songs of all time. A great lyricist... - roblist
A really strong song which after you finish hearing it you end up traumatized! Seriously
The most covered song of all time must be doing something right - RecklessGreedV 1 Comment
I'm so happy because so many have voted Desolation Row. It's definitely the best song ever written and I bet everyone who's listened to it know what I mean. The only lyrics that can compete with this one are some of Bob Dylans other songs like "It's alright ma" and "Mr Tambourine Man". Man In The Mirror is really good too, but you can't compare it to songs written by songwriters like Bob Dylan and Neil Young.
What's most depressing from this list is that "One" is 10th. I love the song, but the lyrics are just like in any other rock song. These kids who play Guitar Hero and say they're 13 years old and special because they love Metallica shouldn't really be allowed to vote here.
I just can't believe this is 17 on the list and "Linkin Park" is on number 9, No one, absolutely no one, comes close to Bob when it comes to lyrics, this one is incredible, It's Alright Ma should be on number 1 though, that's the nirvana of songwriters to me, every time you write lyrics you're on the shadow of that song...
Damn you Michael Jackson. This is the best lyrical song ever.
(Well, that I have heard anyway. I'm sure there's better ones I have yet to hear)
The lyrics are there to confuse the meaning of the song. Since the time signatures were kinda messy (they used the Fibonacci sequence), they basically wanted the entire song to be messy. They change the meaning of the song every verse, going from open-mindedness to leaving things behind and killing yourself by over thinking, then nonsense afterwards. This song got rated as the best 21st century metal performance for a very good reason. - MKBeast
Such a complexive song.This belongs in top 10 easily.! Greatest song lyrics ever written in 21st century..!
I hear this and think of my dad.
I can see everything about him in this song.
Kelly Clarkson is the best singer to have ever come off a talent show!
Should be in the top 3 with I'm Ok-Christina Aguilera and Somewhere only we know-Keane
I really really love this song. Kelly is my idol and I love her voice
Amazing song a vocalist
Good god help us...do we even know if she actually wrote this song..?...like give me a break people...because of you...because of you I'm bashing my head on a wall...please get this off this list..please. what has this world done to music...what.!?!
This is a very cheeky song! Love this when I was younger haha!
This lyrics really gets me and is so underrated. Should be way up on the list. "I'm a barbie girl in a barbie world..." Just let it sink in...
Soundtrack of my life.
How is this not number one? It has the best lyrics ever written? How is it number 238? Its blasphemy! - Alpha101
The plot twist in these lyrics is amazing
Great, haunting lyrics
When you listen to it with its music, its just heavenly...
It is a song that is mellow and inspires hope. -Jacob washlock
This song really makes you think about what the world really is, and what the real problems are. Also, the video is fantastic,
They're so good, I put the lyrics on a white t-shirt with a black sharpie lol. -
