The Nonsensical Lyrics:
But she wanna make love all night long,
I'm gone!
Why They're Nonsensical:
You're gone? Wouldn't you rather stay?!!! Is she really that ugly that you don't wanna stay?
Submitted by: Keeke
"I've Changed"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
The voicemail that you left me was scoldin
Hot enough to burn a hole in a cauldron
Why They're Nonsensical:
...Or anything else for that matter if it's so scolding. Why specifically a cauldron? Ah, for rhyming reasons. And who would've thought LL would be the cauldron type? I know he isn't that renowned for his lyrical expertise but some of the stuff he comes up with is enough to send one's head reeling.

I wish he would make up his mind.
Submitted by: Celeste
"I Need Love"
The Insincere Lyrics:
You can scratch my back, we'll get cozy and huddle
I'll lay down my jacket so you can walk over a puddle
Why They're Insincere:
The jacket gimmick just doesn't work when your in the city and not in 16th century England. Plus back scratching is not romantic at all.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"NAACP Image Awards"
LL Cool J was honored at the NAACP Image Awards as outstanding actor in a drama series for CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles". He dedicated his trophy to fellow nominee Michael Clarke Duncan, the "Green Mile" actor that died last year.
Submitted by: Robert D. Arndt Jr.
"Catching an Intruder"
Recently, rapper LL Cool J was surprised by noises in his kitchen around 1am in the morning only to discover an unknown man in his home who then rushed him. LL Cool J delivered a broken nose and jaw to the man who was a transient that had just walked into his home (probably scavenging for food) and suffered the consequences. The unidentified intruder is being treated in the hospital for his injuries. It is not clear if LL Cool J pressed charges or not (TMZ)...
