I love the riffing in Mr. Tinkertrain, but I can't take the song cause it's from the eyes of a pedophile. Same with a lot of death metal (whichever ones I can understand). This happen to anybody else?

This is the biggest reason Libertad was so hard to enjoy. He's a wonderful singer, but Scott Weiland has no business writing lyrics.

if you knew the meaning of the song (which is protesting against child molestation in this case) then you shouldn't have a hard time listening to anything. Death metal's take on child molestation takes it from a rather humorous point, so dont take things so seriously.

My point exactly, and death metal bands who sing about child molestation arent being serious.

If the lyrics blow, yeah. That's one of the reasons why I prefer electronic music, less chance of there being amateurish lyrics to spoil the song.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

For example as much as I love NIN the whole of their first album was nearly ruined for me just because of the lyrical content.

I don't mean ****ty, rediculous lyrics (I like Dream Theater ). I'm talking about downright disturbing lyrics.

To the person that said the death metal pedo-lyrics are supposed to be funny - there is nothing remotely ****ing funny about pedophilia, it's the robbing of the innocence of a child that thinks mommy and daddy are gonna protect them. It's sick. Murder and whatnot I can take.

I know that Mr. Tinkertrain is protesting, but it still makes me queasy.

Oh God oh God oh God

Trent Reznor makes some great music, with amazing production, but then proceeds to almost totally nullify any value his songs have with some terrible terrible lyrics.

Watch the white
Turn to red
It fills up the hole but it grows somewhere else instead
All my life
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, but it just left me dead
(well guess what?)
The world is over and I realize it was all in my head




Velvet Acid Christ is even worse for that. And Wumpscut's English lyrics (but his German lyrics are okay.)

Pretty Hate Machine just sounded like a whiney little boy sad at the fact someone broke up with him. I mean the music was great, so were the vocals but with lines like "Now I'm slipping on the tears you made me cry" how are you supposed to take him seriosuly?

I myself am all for disturbing lyrics. Those that genuinely manage to get under my skin make me sit and think deeply.

As for death metal lyrics... they're so over-the-top they're great. Gore pwns, wimp

Okay, most VAC lyrics are improvised and drug-influenced, but still...

Err...no. The plural of "fish" is fish when you're talking about one specific kind of fish. It is "fishes" when you're talking about a couple of different schools of fish. It's the same thing with "people" and "peoples."

The whole idea with the gore, murder, rape, paedophilia is to shock people, nothing more. At first, band like Death did it with gore (Scream Bloody Gore is a bit of a give away). Over time, people have become more accustomed and used to this sort of lyrical imagery. Therefore, bands who can't break into the scene any other way grab attention by being the most schocking band around. Others follow suit, and try to get attention by being the most disgusting and 'br00talz' band out there.

Some bands did it to get attention, and now keep it as a cliche (e.g. Cannibal Corpse), but others constantly up the bar in order to try and gain appeal despite a lack of musical abilty. Paedophilia is sadly the next step up. Slayer's Reign in Blood would not be nearly as sucessful now as it was 25 or so years ago, simply because what was shocking then is nothing now.

It is simply an attempt by some metal bands to get attention. I doubt any of them really believe what they are saying, and are simply trying to get more attention.

LOL NO.

I am a death metal fan, so don't start that crap.

I never said it lacked technicality, and I do admit it is one of the most technical genres out there, if not the most technical.


You can't really call it lyrically advanced though, eh?

alot of death metal lyrics areant serious and they basically just tell a story within the song. It's not like they're promoting all that murder ****
