Stupid Band Names:

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

Why They're Nonsensical:
If you're mad, you are angry so this line is redundant. Furthermore, how can you be 'in anger' with someone?!

"The Small Hours"

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"One"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Land mine has taken my sight,
taken my speech, taken my hearing....
Why They're Insincere:
Although at first it may sound as though 'how can that be when he's singing the song?' but the history behind this song is that it's taken from a book where the character actually did step on a landmine and lose all those things and more, so in fact, it's not all that insincere
Submitted by: Leah
"One"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Land mine has taken my sight,
taken my speech, taken my hearing...
Why They're Insincere:
I know It's supposed to represent what the person is thinking, but someone who doesn't understand that will probably say, 'Hey, if you've lost your speech, how are you singing this song?' and sooner or later I fugured someone was going to put this lyric up here...
Submitted by: wadded beef

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Last Caress/Green Hell"
The Insulting Lyrics:
I got something to say
I killed your baby today and it
Doesn't matter much to me
As long as it's dead
Why They're Insulting:
Strangers don't kill babies.
Submitted by: Mickey D.
"Die, Die, My Darling"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Die, die, die, my darling.
Don't utter a single word.
Die, die, die, my darling.
Just shut your pretty mouth.
I'll be seeing you again.
I'll be seeing you in Hell.
Why They're Insulting:
This guy is singing a song that's basically telling a woman to die. It isn't just insulting. It's sick.
Submitted by: Anonymous

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"So What"

Boasting in Song Lyrics:

"Whiplash"
The Boasting Lyrics:
The show is through, the metal's gone, it's time to hit the road. Another town, another gig, again we will explode. Hotel rooms and moterways, life out here is raw. We'll never stop, well never quit 'cause we're Metallica!
Comments:
The only song in Metallica's history where they mention the name of their band. Actually, pretty much all of the "Kill 'Em All" album could be considered boasting. (In live performances James chasnge the lyrics to "'cause YOU'RE Metallica!" which is a lot more generous.)
Submitted by: Thaddeus Gammelthorpe
"Hit the Lights"
The Boasting Lyrics:
No life 'till leather. We're gonna kick some *ss tonight! We've got the metal madness. When our fans start screaming it's right! --later-- You know the band's insane. We're gonna blow this place away! With volume higher than anything today! The only way, yeah! When we start to rock we never want to stop again! Hit the lights!
Comments:

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Enter Sandman"
The Lyrics:
Hush little baby, don't say a word.
And never mind that noise you heard.
It's just the beast under your bed.

The song is about nightmares, and death. Also about little kids freaking out about the night.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Broken, Beat, & Scarred"
The Lyrics:
What don't kill ya, make ya more strong.
Why:
Ugh! "What don't doesn't kill you makes you stronger." is the common phrase, but the proper phrase, "That which does not kill us, makes us stronger," is what the group "paraphrased" this quote from, which is culled from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzche's book "Twilight of the Idols".
