Red hot chili peppers
Cocteau Twins lyrics are clever
their lyrics are a bit of a mixed bag really, some are actually quite good.
tho' that may be 'cos of the music
For example "Not Even Jail". The lyrics are quite possibly meaningless gibberish but they really, really work and sound emotive when put to the music.
I love them, but sometimes the lyrics are painfully bad.
add to them
sometimes good, often abysmal
lyrics by wyatt

Especially since Richey went...
moments. Most of them are on In Utero though
they know how to put a riff and a melody, no rhyme or poetic subtly whatsoever unfortunatley
the optimist lp
Radiohead (most of the time)
doesn't make him any less right.
although the lyrics arnt exactly great, the sort of vague angstyness and voice that sings them fits the music well enough to make them good.
you could argue the same about interpol, and people seem quite happy to dismissing their lyrics.
are an amazing band musically but the lyrics on Exploded Drawing are mostly crap, although not crap enough to make you throw the cd out of the window. Not Anthony Kiedis crap.
