lol, les claypool

his lyrics are hillarious

some good songs to check out from his band (Primus) are : John the Fisherman, Pudding Time, and Too Many Puppies

also, in all seriousness, Niel Pert from Rush, and John Petrucci from Dream Theater

since practically every Rush and Dream Theater song is fantastic, there is no need to put up good ones

Glass Sandwich, Year of the Parrot, and Wynona's Big Brown Beaver are epic as well.

Chris Cornell ... I know pretty much overrated in some opinions, but he did sell 4 songs to Alice Cooper so that says something. Anyways all the song off of Temple of the Dog were some of the best lyrics in history

1 of my personal favorites is Serj Tankian
-empty walls- maybe better video then lyrics but def good
-unthinking majority-
some of his work before systems hiatus
-hyponotize- very repetetive but lots of meaning
-lots of other SOAD songs
maybe hes just a really good vocalist and brings the words to life mut i think he found meaning in them and i think thats what matters

Maynard James Keenan.


+1

Any song by A Perfect Circle or Tool has great lyrics I think. You can actually get a story from his lyrics unlike so many other lyricists today.
