    I get it. He's talking about the Hybridora schmucks. It's funny on a "take that" level, totally.

    But c'mon now.


    C'mooooooooooooooon...

    Anytime I hear a discussion of 'worst LP lyrics ever', I have to bring up:

    I wanna heal
    I wanna feel
    These lyrics make me want to bash my head in with steel

    Actually, no. I do not. I think they're actually sort of cool and they are meant to sound kind of awkward, and the meaning behind them is really heavy so I like them. I can understand where people would think they're awful but for me it just seems to work really well.

    No. Somewhere I Belong has the worst lyrics. There's only so many times you can rhyme something with the word feel.

    (And yes that is a challenge for people to reply in this thread with words that rhyme with feel)

    I'm gonna steal
    A pound of veal
    and then I'm gonna club a seal
    I'm gonna pay a girl to come and touch my schlooooooooooong

    You wouldn't dare.

    I wanna heal.
    I wanna feel.
    Zoolander poses with Blue Steel.
    I watch Ally McBeal
    while clubbing a seal
    for my next meal.
    Although I'm hungry for some veal.
    My favorite color is teal.
    I slipped on a banana peel
    while watching Deal or No Deal.
    When girls give head, they usually kneel.
    Have you eaten electric eel?
    Quite shocking, some will keel
    over and die, at the wheel
    I'm done with my spiel.

    Yeah haha, even if these aren't great lyrics I would probably still pick them over a decent amount from earlier in their career.

    Minus should be the first one to reply on this kind of threads so the rest of us don't have to waste time typing.

    They said that I just did not appeal
    That I didn't have enough Zeal
    Wondered if I had lost a Wheel
    Or if I was dying from lack of a meal
    If my game was lost and I forgot how to kill
    they're hating on me and just sending a bill
    but I still appeal
    'cause I got the might of a seal
    Who is tough enough to control that wheel
    and fuck the haters who say I ain't real
    Because it's just my thunder they're trying to steal
    But I know it's really not a big deal
    Cause I just keep it real
    And deal.

    Somewhere I Belong is the worst. Numb comes in a close 2nd... (Waits for an EXTREME Meteora fan bashing...BRING IT!)

    To be honest, there are probably plenty of Meteora songs that include something that can compete for the title of worst Linkin Park lyric.

    This is true... well only one thing to do... Everyone name the worst song on Meteora (except Somewhere I belong. That one is too easy) and see which one comes up on top... GO! (In terms of lyrics of course. To sort of stay semi on topic :awesome:)

    Don't Stay has probably the worst lyrics overall on that album, but it's also probably one of the songs on there that I enjoy most haha.

    Yeah... Don't get me wrong I like Meteora for the sound. Songs like Don't Stay, Breaking the Habit, etc are great sounding but its the fact that Don Gilmore had them re-write the lyrics so much to make the songs so radio friendly that it just killed it.

    When I was a teenager though the music to me was awesome. It was like the fuel for my teen rage!! RAWR! but as I grew older (almost 26 now, married and a father) hearing the music now I just can't *relate* to it anymore.

    When Minutes to Midnight came out I really enjoyed the more "Mature" sound that they came up with. A lot of songs I could relate to as well. One example would be the song "Shadow of the Day". Any time I hear this song it helps comfort me with the thoughts my daughter passing away at 6 months old. Painful day and the song just tends to help comfort me so I don't lose control.

    Music is how you want to take it. I'm not hating on Meteora in a sense. I'm mostly just saying I grew up from Meteora. I am looking forward to hearing ATS on the 15th.

    Somewhere I Belong
    Oh, Linkin Parks ability to take the worst lyrics ever and create an epic song that makes you care less for what is being said. Magic, no?
