What is the worst song you have ever heard that is serious about itself?

Don't just pick songs you don't like or pick random pop songs. Actually look at the song and say why it is so horrible.

I pick "Obstacle 1" by Interpol

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWAfdRhGL2E

This song has the worst lyrics I have ever heard. Such as...

"Her stories are boring and stuff,
she's always calling my bluff"

WORST LYRICS I HAVE EVER HEARD.

Not to mention the vocals are terrible, an Ian Curtis wannabe that is somehow actually worse than Ian. (I love Joy Division but you know I am right).

How about you guys?

i would say chased through the woods by waking the cadaver, but a strong argument can be made for it not being a serious song at all

Definitely.
Dream Evil has the cheesiest lyrics ever, especially on their first album. And I think they're being serious.

We are the chosen ones, we sacrifice our blood, we kill for honor. We are the chosen ones, our armor stained with blood, we kill the dragon.


Their music is awesome though, so I let them slide.

Me and my friends had an inside joke about that song, funny stuff.

Anyways, I'm going to have to go with brokeNCYDE for the most hilarious "we're totally serious" band.

I mean, really, look at these lyrics and try not to laugh at how terribly depressed-6th-grader they sound:

"Your eyes
They flow
From all the pain I caused
I lost my cause
I only broke your heart
Alone I cry
I tried so hard to break you
I love you
I hate you
Why wont you let me go?"

And here's the song, which makes the whole thing rise to a new level of hilarity:

Fuuu man. I like Obstacle 1. It's a good song. Maybe you should stop paying so much attention to the lyrics and his vocals are not annoying, stop exaggerating. Btw they are heavily influenced by Joy Division just like The Editors, the vocals are intended to be similar.

This thread is about serious songs; there are very few Power Metal bands that take their lyrics and theatrics seriously.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
