    What if God was one us?
    Just a slob like one of us?

    (I don't remember the singer's name, but the song was written by that dude from The Hooters.)

    The forced rhyme and grammatical mistake (if God were, not was--contrary to fact condition) are wonderful.

    If you want to see an example of how really, truly asinine and nonsensical rap/hip-hop lyrics are, check out Alanis Morissette's version of My Humps.

    Ya gotta love a band that titles a song All Men Play on Ten. Not only do they make the list of all time bad lyrics, but they also make many top 10 worst album covers as well with this gem of a cover:

    Great album cover lenny, is it one of yours?;) :D

    Sting (ex Police) was voted worst lyricist last week. I wouldn't know, as my ears fur over whenever he's on.

    Thats a great album cover. But the world of bad metal covers and band pictures is a dangerous place.

    With all this talk of manowar you need to see a video of them.

    Here is a nice song with lyrical gems like

    We wear leather
    We wear spikes
    We rule the night

    The critics keep drooling over Morrissey's lyrics, though, so I might have missed an important point.

    Gloves of Metal! Manowar has the market cornered on songs with "metal" and "steel" in the title. Here's a hilarious list of horrible album covers, and yes Manowar is on there: http://www.coverbrowser.com/covers/worst-album-covers

    I agree...Fall Out Boy are far better with these alternate lyrics to one of their more popular songs. Fallout Boy Misheard Lyrics
    I think I popped a kidney laughing when I saw this. Far preferable to the original and with much more meaning.

    I don't know if that was more painful to hear, or to watch. yeesh.


    IMHO, possibly the worst lyrics ever written:

    That honkey tonk badonkadonk
    Keepin' perfect rhythm
    Make ya wanna swing along
    Got it goin' on
    Like Donkey Kong
    And whoo-wee
    Shut my mouth, slap your grandma
    There outta be a law
    Get the Sheriff on the phone
    Lord have mercy, how's she even get them britches on
    That honky tonk badonkadonk


    Come on, who actually heard that and said "oh, what a great song - let's record it!!" :sick: :banghead6mx:

    Transfusion, transfusion,
    I'm one solid mass of...contusions,
    I'm never never never gonna speed again-
    Put a gallon in me, Allan...
    Put a litre in me, Peter.

    Yeah, for sure
    OMG! There's some very disturbing images in there. I found this one particularly disturbing, I think she is planning a mass murder...

    Even more disturbing if you consider the title album is Darling Mother in german...:eek:
