    Master of Nuhn, I would agree that one of the Alan Parsons Project's great strengths is their lyrics. I have nearly all their albums, much to my wife's dismay. ;)

    Another good song that describes life (my life, anyhow) is "Here I go again" by Whitesnake. I love that song, and every time I start a new semester with a new group of dumbass kids, that song goes through my head. :D

    Voodoo Child, by Jimi Hendrix

    By the way, what's with all the punk rock? Surely there's more to life than that stuff...and if not, why fuel it by having some group of dick-brained teenagers agree with you?

    I'm agreeing with aegron and 8people.

    Pour my heart to get you in

    Over My Head(Better Off Dead) and All Messed Up by Sum 41 can summarize my life up pretty well.

    The reason for all the punk...

    Maybe because some people are sick of listening to who people are in love with. It's the 'mold' for pretty much any successful song, and now that punk is breaking the mold, it's refreshing. Anyway, Sum41, Blink 182 (although Adam's Song is good) and such are not punk, they're just rock with faster lyrics. True punk is Bad Religion (mostly their old stuff), Rancid, Anti-Flag, nofx, Black Flag and (drumroll please) the Casualties. I'm sick of hearing about puppy love from Britney and N'sync. I want to hear about stuff that matters. Most of the punk I listen too resembles Steppenwolf and whoever sang "War, what is it good for?".

    so there :p

    Anyway, in response to the question...
    21st century boy - Bad Religion or
    Your daddy was a rich man, your daddy's effing dead - Anti-Flag
    Die for the Government - Anti-Flag

    [​IMG] Mystra's Chosen: If you think that all music is only about love except punk, and that it's refreshing, reconsider. Sounds to me like you take everything you hear on the radio and judge music as a whole from those four or five songs, which are all "puppy love" from Britney and Nsync.

    So you want to hear about stuff that matters in the lyrics? Let's see...was it Blink 182 or Limp Bizkit that wrote the chorus to the song...oh how does it go?... "I want to f*** a dog up the a**" ( How ironic that you used the words PUPPY LOVE for other kinds of music... :eek: ) or "It would be nice to have a blowjob from your mom" or something like that? And I'm not being sarcastic and I don't have a filthy mind...These songs are REAL - and they're the latest craze - important, mattering-lyrical songs - they're so 'cool' and they are 'refreshing' and their lyrics 'matter'. Wow. Sorry. I don't see the light of revolution there.

    I don't mean to attack you :) - just giving you my opinion. I think that if you don't want to hear about love anymore, and want to hear music that truly matters, yet still holds the beat:

    1. Stop listening to the radio. For the love of god, buy a discman or get XM radio or something.

    2. Search past the closest hype that comes to mind (punk music) to find it - there's infinitely many kinds of music NOT about love, and NOT generic and childish.

    Xaelifer has a point. A lot of punk is absalute crap. Especialy the new stuff thats coming out. But there is also a lot a brilliant punk.
    Even Blink 182 have some good songs (thinking of Adams Song and Dammit)
    And no, none of these songs describe my life

    Did you even read my damn post? I said I don't like Blink 182, Sum 41 or any other new punk band out. They're just as bad as Britney and N'sync. I also don't listen to the radio or watch MTV (or Much Music in Canada). I listen to music with curent events in the lyrics. One song by Anti-Flag is called Culture Revolution, another is called The Panama Deception. A song by Bad Religion is called Kyoto Now, another is called The Gray Race (it's about the human race). I'm sick of Sum 41 and Blink 182 (what's with the numbers anyway?). They sing about f***ing **** (literaly)! and Limp Bizkit? Doesn't the name say it all? Please actually READ my post so that I don't have to write the same thing over again. I'm not condoning people listening to Sum 41 or Blink, I just think you shouldn't bash all punk because there are, as Aikanaro said, lots of brilliant punk

    Wonder how many of these songs actually describe life well, and how many just sound good to their people who picked them. A song called “Die for the Government” by a band called Anti-Flag doesn’t seem like it has much in the way about how life is.

    I like some punk, but it looks like there's not much in the way of creativity for the genre. As a friend of mine said, "Punk is always something that you can jump up and down to."

    The number on the back of Blink 182 is actually down to copyright laws. Before Blink 182 were known as blink but there was another band from Ireland iirc called Blink that had it copyrighted, so they put the extra numbers on.

    I put Die for The Government down there more as a protest song. I'm never going to actually 'die' for my country, but I do protest people who have
    (and will)

    Yer gonna die, gonna die, gonna die for the government. Die for the government? That's ****!
