You must be joking.

Axl Rose isn't too bad of a lyricist.

I can't say I've got a favourite, though.

I think Alex Kapranos writes most, if not all, of the lyrics. He's a clever writer. I forgot to mention him.

AC/DC doesn't have bad lyrics, just you don't really listen for the lyrics that closely for them. The words 'rock n roll' seem to pop up a bit.
