It's still a very important factor in the song. When you say "that music" it's a little to general.

Not really. Some bands just don't put much emphasis on the lyrical aspect, they simply add a narative to a song but unless the lyrics really dominate the song they can be avoided.

Most hard rock bands are just musicians, they're not poets. Now it can be argued that Axl did indeed take his lyrics very seriously, at least on later stuff. But I actually consider him a pretty decent lyricist. Yeah he did some pretty typical c0ck rock stuff but that's part of the job.

So you do care about the lyrics. I for one think lyrics in any song are pretty important, except screamo.

Not really no. I listen to music for music, if it's a great song musically then I don't really care if the lyrics aren't great or even if they're terrible, they could be about fisting for all I care.

It's different however if the primary focus of a song is the lyrics, then that can be a problem, but I'm never really attracted to something JUST for the lyrics.

I think Pearl Jam is a good example of this, Eddie's moaning and groaning sounds good with the music, I can't understand a ****ing word he is saying, but it doesn't matter, sounds good.

The lyrics are one aspect of a song's aura. Just as if a song had a part for cello that was written really bad and sounded bad, but the rest sounded amazing - there's still that bad cello. Some people might not mind the cello, others will find it totally distracting and counterproductive. Lyrics are the hardest part of song writing to master, because everyone disagrees on them.

Sooo...I've decided to put the Hall of Fame on hold for a week.

In the meantime, you all can send me as many nominations as you desire. Make sure you at least have a write up on why you're nominating the band/artist.

I look forward to logging on to an inbox overflowing with PM's!
