Write about your own interests and experiences.

Anything is fair game. The Dictators used to write about White Castle and Wrestling. Lou Reed wrote about his love of trannies.

Make it personal and make it you.

That stuff is usually more interesting than a political song anyway.

well i dont know too much about their lyrics, but try picking a topic of something that happened to you to someone you know and exadurate the story about it, i find it easier to write about girls

ok most of those bands sing about political stuff and pennywise too but what ever

just write about something that makes u angry or your veiw on the world

break some conventions! Try writing an album's worth of punk songs that aren't angry. That'd be impressive.

Anyway--all I can tell you, really, is to write what you know. If you ramble about the Battle of Wweioghweioughwuoehg or whatever, it'll sound contrived and fake. Just write based on your experiences, your feelings, your views on the world. Unfortunately, the rest has to come from you
I owe a ton of people critiques.

If you're one of them, please PM me.

I have trouble keeping track.

yeah man write what comes to you. if you make a point to write a specific kind of lyric, nothing will come out. lyrics are not forced, they just come to you.

Step 1) Write non-political lyrics
Step 2) Set them to a punk song.

There ya go!

write about inspiration and positive influences like rise against does sometimes.


the most interesting thing i have heard at a concert is in the break between the bridge and chorus during "Prayer of the Refugee" the singer said, "thank you, good night, and take care of each other."
