What are songs with lyrics that you either can't understand or have difficulty understanding???

For me, and most other people, I reckon Tourette's by Nirvana.

Schizophrenia rap?

*beatboxes*

I have schizophrenia, I talk to myself,
People startin' to doubt my mental health,
Maybe someday I'll get the help I need,
But till then don't be blamin' mah weed.

A lot of Reagan Youth stuff is like that, but even less understandable. It's still awesome though.

Also Rancid, considering the fact that Tim Armstrong is unable to speak.

If CCR had been around at a time when people actually cared about lyrical content one way or the other, I'm certain they would've either replaced John Fogerty with a different singer or trained him in the art of consonants.

for some reason, megadeth. everytime i hear one of their songs, Dave's voice seems "distant" and i dont pay attention to it because he sounds "far away"

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.

Death metal for sure...my brother's band has two vocalists like that, and even they admit that you can't understand them. A line in one of their songs reads "you don't have enough rupees for that potion", because they couldn't think of anything else to put there and knew that nobody would know the difference.
Nope, no sig here.

What don't you understand in Banana Pancakes? The vocals are so clear in that song, you might as well be reading them off a sheet of paper.

^ ^ ^ I can actually understand every word of Bohemian Rhapsody perfectly. Although, you might have interpreted the thread title to mean lyrics that make no sense, in which case I wholeheartedly agree.

It's not that I don't understand them, but the part in Octavarium by Dream Theater that go:
Sailing on the seven seize the day tripper diem's ready
Jack the ripper Owens Wilson Phillips and my supper's ready
Lucy in the sky with diamond Dave's not here I come to save the
Day for nightmare cinema show me the way to get back home again

What do they mean?!?!
It's like Superman reading the teachings of Jesus. The two greatest musicians on Earth hath combined forces. I officially quit music, as it has reached it's zenith with that cover.

Ohh. It didn't actually say that clearly in the first post; I though lyrics you couldn't understand meant lyrics that you had trouble interpreting. Ohwell. At least Rosetta Stoned still fits.

Yes, though I must admit it is quite clever.

I believe that you are calling Lupe Fiasco, Immortal Technique, Chuck D, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Andre 3000, and many more "retards." Some rappers, granted, deserve it, but definitely not all.

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away
Holy Diver-yeah

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you

(Look out!)
Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun 'till you see the light
Oh we will pray it's all right

Gotta get away-get away

Between the velvet lies
There's a truth that's hard as steel-yeah
The vision never dies
Life's a never ending wheel

(Say!)
Holy Diver
You're the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

(Jump-Jump!)
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he's mean
Some light can never be seen-yeah

Holy Diver
You've been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what's becoming of me

(No-no!)
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he's clean
Oh don't you see what I mean

Gotta get away-get away-gotta get away-get away-yeah
Holy Diver
Soul surviver
You're the man who's clean
Holy Diver
Holy Diver
You're the cat in the blue comin' after you
Holy Diver
Holy Diver-yeah-all right
Get away-get away-get away
Holy Diver
