Default The best worst lyrics of all time

For my money, Ronnie James Dio has written some of the most fantasically ridiculous yet awesome lyrics of all time. Take the below examples.

"Heaven and Hell" by Black Sabbath:

Quote:
Sing me a song, you're a singer
"Holy Diver" with Dio:

Quote:
Between the velvet lies,
There's a truth that's hard as steel
Are there any lyrics from other artists or songs that you think are hilariously bad but awesome in execution? List them here.

Note: Anything with fantasy and/or dragons is guaranteed to be a winner.

bonus: I posted this in the right forum this time around. Yay alcohol!

Everything Manowar has ever written.

Example: It's more to me, than just a job, and while I'm playing you won't get robbed. Nobody tells a man how to play, it just ain't that way. Hey hey hey. Can you hear me say, all men play on ten. Never gonna turn down again.

All Men Play On Ten

Motorhead -- Ace of Spades.

In a song that generally has pretty clever lyrics, the part in the middle where Lemmy screams "and don't forget the Joker!" has always grated on me.

From a BBC poll in 2007:

#1 "I don't want to see a ghost/It's the sight that I fear most/I'd rather have a piece of toast/Watch the evening news". Des'ree - 'Life'

#2 "I'm as serious as cancer/ When I say rhythm is a dancer". Snap - 'Rhythm is a Dancer'

#3 "And I met a girl/ She asked me my name/ I told her what it was". Razorlight - 'Somewhere Else'


Shocking.

Black Eyed Peas-- "Where is the Love"

"What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas"

You can't rhyme a word with the same word, that's just horrendous.

Speaking of the ****ing Black Eyed Peas

Their latest song (which mostly consists of an auto-tuned rendition of the song from dirty dancing), has the following line:
"All these girls they like my swagger / They call me Mick Jagger / I’ve been rolling like a stoned "

Many radio listeners will notice that that Swagger / Jagger line was blatantly bitten from the Ke$ha 2010 song "Tik Tok" which has the line:
"And now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger / But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger"

It doesn't end there though. On the T.I.'s 2008 joint "Swagger Like Us," Kanye West boasts: "My Swagger is Mick Jagger."

And if you thought it ended there, you're wrong, because this seems to all originate in a 2006 song by Ghostface Killah "The Champ," which features the line: "My swagger is Mick Jaeger stones is rolling"

So the best that the biggest group in the world, who are soon to be Super Bowl performers, is recycle a line that's four times reheated. Uhhhh. And these lines are neither old nor obscure.

I guess what I'm just trying to say is STOP RHYMING "SWAGGER" WITH "JAGGER." And maybe listen to Fishscale again.

Nickelback - Something In Your Mouth

Quote:
Dressed up like a princess, betting that her skin smells
Better than the scent of every flower in the desert, come on!
This is one of the least offensive clips from Nickelback’s thinly veiled celebration of misogyny. While this is well-done and provocative by Nickelback standards, it still sounds like a throwaway line from some Motley Crue B-side, minus the fun. And when will Kroeger and company realize that’s it no longer considered clever to throw in a “Yeah!” or “Come on!” whenever you can’t think of anything else to say?

There's a song by Maroon 5 about Jagger too. Its hip to sing about Jagger now.
