What words or topics/ subjects start off and create a good song? any techniques?

I think a bunch of words starts up a good song. Specially if it is a bunch of words! Like.. Arctic Monkeys' 'From the Ritz to the Rubble' (hear it!) where it's floating with words while the music is setting up the mood and preparing for the bim bam BLASSTT where the song really starts and comes all together..

Otherwise the word 'grandma' should start off a song pretty good!

write about whetever you see around you. is there anything in particular you want to write about?
don't drink and drive, smoke and fly. actually, do both, if that's what you want. i won't care.

Just be like Slipknot's 'Before I Forget' and shout 'GO!'

Lets people know that there is, indeed, a song commencing.
All your base are belong to us.
All your base are belong to us.
All your base are belong to us.
All your base are belong to us.

another really good idea is to get really high and write down what you see, and then compile it into a song later.

i gess lookin around and writing down what i see could work. but isnt the "Go!" kinda plajarizing Slipknot? or is it just a way to start up the song like the classic "1, 2, 1234!"

Subdivide and go "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8!"......Or a simple UGH, OH or HEY

AGREED. or you can shout "ONE TWO THREE FOUR" really loudly like others have mentioned. that also lets people know there is a song commencing

I write political lyrics. It totaly passes everytime Thrash.

I love also lyrics about a dead pirate on a ghost ship in the sea or smth. My new song will be with that theme.

Just go up there, make everyone look real solemn, then get the vocalist to go wide-eyed and scream convincingly, "What the f*** is that!" while pointing to a corner far away.

Then the whole band explodes as loud as possible.

The God of Rock watches every1, that includes u!! The jesters do all the rockin while the God sits his butt in his chair screamin 4 more

First of all put them in a room(cell)

Chords:

standard Em,
E7~ : x7678x
A7 : fifth fret
A : fifth fret
G : third fret

Play,

Em \ E7~ \ A7 \ A \
G \ A7 \ A \ E7~

This could be a good exercise.

Finally, Let them free.
