Some of the worst lyrics ever composed:

** Won't you come with me, to a place in a little town,
The only way to get there's to go straight down,
Theres no bathroom, and there is no sink,
The water out of the tap is very, hard to drink,
Very hard to drink! **

Yeah, I bet the water is hard to drink when it's coming out of a tap that doesn't exist.

What do you think of the lyrics to the supposed best song from the 90's?

Verse 1-

Load up on guns
Bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's overborne and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello ,hello
With the Lights out it's less dangerous
Here we are now entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now entertain us
A mullato an albino
A mosquito my libido

Don't get me wrong, I am not being a critic; I just wonder sometimes why people's views are what they are. What should be considered great and what should be considered sh*t? I just don't know.

"H-Well the church bells are calling
Po-lice cars on fire
And as they call you to the eye of the storm
All the people say "Stay at home tonight"

I say we are the pigs, we are the swah-hine
We are the stars of the firing liiiiine

And as the smack cracks at your window
You wake up with a gun in your moutttthh
Oh let the nuclear h-wind blow a-hway my sins
And I'll stay at home in my house

I SAA-HAY, we are the pigs
we are the swah-hine
we are the stars of the firing line..."

We Are the Pigs by Suede.

HE's a crap lyricist, but it sounds good with the tune.

Cobain was a pretty dodgy lyricist...

Now I'm scared Liam because I am in agreement with you. I have read some dumb a*s lyrics over the years, but when you listen to them in the song, you can't help walking away singing them. It is something I have said on this board a hundred times - song structure and melody! When done right, it is the most amazing of all art forms. I will not give a list of examples because what I may think is great may completely turn another off. But I always like to mention "I Am The Walrus". It is a great marriage of sound and lyrics. It is not a hit song, influential or earth shattering; just a sound which always puts a smile on my face.

Let's just clear something up right now: the single was initially released in Australia in September of 1994--the band members that year were turning 15. They wrote those lyrics when they were 15.

In my mind, given how popular the song ultimately became, that's not too bad for teenagers--namely since it was written entirely on their own.

Look them up now.

Silverchair have rightfully earned a place in the RnR Hall of Fame... as have many other f*cking bands!

Don't just focus on the Frogstomp album, Diorama and Neon Ballroom are both incredible albums. In fact I'd put up Diorama up as your modern day Led Zeppelin/Pink Floyd album it's that bloody amazing. Listen for yourself before you judge me. It's an artistic masterpiece.

100% they should be in first ballot.
Top band that morphed and made every album different. They started early and finished strong. Daniel John's is an unreal guitarist and vocalist. Chris Robinson, Eddie Vedder and Daniel Johns are the top 3 vocalist's in the last 30 years. Unless you want to throw George Michael in there which is fine. Silverchair deserves it. Awesome band.

Saying silverchairs lyrics are sh*t is possibly the most stupidest thing i"ve read on this site. The lyrics arnt written by pearl jam,nirvana ect in there peak and whilst as adults, silverchair where 15 years old and still at school at the time of frogstomp, I guarantee you'll never see another band as young as they where to sell 2 million copy's at the age of 15 and continue to produce great albums right up to there hiatus ( 5 albums all reaching #1 spot in the ARIAS). But hey, thats just my personal opinion and as 'stupid' as the lyrics sound, as long as im able to jam out to it and headbang, ill be happy for any band to be inducted to the hall of fame. ( except future nominations of people like jay Z, iggy azalea, 5 seconds of summer and one direction ...f*ck that shit)
