So, I've been on a mewithoutyou kick and I was thinking about how much I love their lyrics. As far as lyrics go, I think they would have to be my favorite. How about you?

I have to agree. I love mewithoutYou's stuff. Their music and lyrics both fulfill me on different levels. I love how you can just take their lyrics and read it like poetry. Amazing stuff.

And Mr. John Cooper has a way with words that make me feel like I can reach out and touch Jesus and feel His power. :D

As I've said before, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon - Queen:)

Some of my other favorites would be PInk Floyd, Skillet, Evanescence, NIN, and of course, Marilyn Manson.

I'd have to say Project86. Love it.

Definetly John of..... duh..... skillet

And also, I'd have to say The Classic Crime, especially with "Flight of Kings" and "The Coldest Heart" and "Who Needs Air". Although, i don't quite get the line in "All the Memories" that says "I'm thankful for your mother for what it's worth"? Whassup widdat? Is he saying telling some girl that she got her stunning beauty from her mommy? haha.

God bless, Alien

I wondered that as well. The Classic Crime is amazing and I love their album, Albatross. When I heard that line from All The Memories, I thought he was basically saying he's thankful for her Mom because she gave her birth. That because of her, she's alive today. :/

Would it be incrdibly cheesy if I said Matt Thiessen? Heh, he really does write good lyrics, I think. Disciple's great too, and I'm sure others...my brain's just not working right now.

p.s. Isn't it a little redundant to mention John on panheads.org? ;)

Andrew Schwab. No questions asked.
In a nowhere-close race, second place goes to: DC Talk (whoever you want to attribute their lyrics to) and/or The Showdown (simply because they have a song about Samson. :-p ...And some other Old Testament stoires. C'mon.)

Butch Walker. He was in marvelous 3, currently solo and working with Avril Lavigne, The Donnas, Midtown, American Hi-Fi, All American Rejects,and Bowling For Soup. Any hit you've herad by these artist he's probably written something on the album.

john micah sumrall...he doesn't write the best lyrics in the world...but he always seems to write about topics i want i want to hear about. i can always listen to a kutless song and be like, "that's so awesome...that's exactly what i think."

06-14-2006, 11:34 AM
My favorites are Demon Hunter, Evanescence, and of course Skillet...I get tired of the crappy, shallow, and common lyrics of most praise and worship songs today...these people give a spiritual and deep feeling to lyrics. THANK YOU, TO ALL ORIGINAL LYRICISTS!!!!!

True. Of the songs i've heard of SC or Jack's Mannequin, they have a unique voice, something hard to find in writing period.

Lol! Someone's heard of Jason Harwell! That guy's hilarious. :D

"'Cause i'm a bad stu-dent!"

wow, someone actually agreed with me as far as andrew mcmahon goes...but seriously now. how could you NOT fall in love with lyrics like, "i am a butterfly/but you wouldn't let me die".

and when he's singing it...i just melt every time.

A large group of my friends really like him, so i am constantly hearing his stuff on car trips and the like. i truly love his voice, but i need to hear the songs more to know if i like all his stuff as much as i enjoy his voice.
