no poll. I just wanted to see what you guys thought. I would have to go with Billy Corgan and Kurdt Cobain would be a close second. But Billy never tried to re-write his hit songs, and tried to progress rock music into a new direction. And he also writes very good lyrics for the most part.

I lol'd. Kurt Cobain; good writer. Hehe.
Nahh he was ok.
But I dunno, did Morrello write the songs for Rage?
I think Anthony Kiedis has some good lyrics once in a while.

He was a good writer, bad guitarist, bad singer.

I'd say Waters and Gilmour, too. Although I don't know if I can truthfully say Waters since this is "past 20 years" and when I think Waters's genius writing I think The Wall. And that was late 70's. I haven't heard his new solo stuff, but I'm sure he's still a great lyricist. Gilmour, though, I've heard his solo stuff. And it's beautiful.

Also, John Mayer's new album has some amazing writing in it, I think.

I'd agree with David Bowie, but Billy Corgan, Thom Yorke, Morrissey, and Pete Doherty are all pretty good.
There's this other guy named Butch Walker who is probably one of the most underrated singer/songwriters out there right now. Check him out.

I'm a big fan of Warren Haynes' songs.
