Yeah I was going to say. The problem with these types of threads is that the illiterate take

"overrated"

and see it as

"song writers you hate"

I love Metallica and I've seen them countless times - no one has ever gone for their lyrics.

Hmm. I dislike Combichrist's lyrics, though it's probably better to treat them as a 'stealth parody'.
The Birthday Massacre are a bit boring for their apparent 'contemporary songwriting'.

^ I lol'd hard.

I used to think the lyrics to that song were "give me fuel, give me fire, give me double-fried desire".

My hatred for Metallica is unrivaled. You'll find no bigger hater than I!

One name immediately comes to mind:

Johnny Cash - Nothing he's ever done remotely impresses me. Is heralded as a genius for having a song with horns in it. Furthermore, he's considered a legend and hero to youth for mumbling a Nine Inch Nails song because of his deep emotional performance.

****ing Hell, he literally sounds like a lonely drunk at a dingy bar mumbling the words to himself after 11:00 pm.

Plus, from what I've heard, most of what he has written for himself samey, hokey, cheesy, tacky, and uninteresting.

You better not be a Nick Cave fan.

Cash is f*cking awesome. His earlier stuff does lack some diversity but that's true for most rock n roll and country music from that era. He isn't tacky at all, except maybe when he goes gospel.

Old country music deserves more props, the themes in those old country songs were a lot more dark, depressing and f*cked up than what was going on in rock n roll at the time. It wasn't the sugar coated sh*t that passes as country today.

I laughed my ass off at that picture. But it proves the point, no one ever thought Hetfield was a great lyricist.

Octane, I think you should renounce this tomfoolery and ride the lightning.
