as long as the lyrics is good/matured, it really doesnt matter..
There won't be unless its very important to the theme of the song.
Ditto. I really don't think/hope they use expletives. It completely ruins a song's integrity for me.
It'll be good if the swearing has somthing to do with the song or emotions
Yeah, but some artists (I don't know how they get around it) release albums with swearing in them without the Explicit Lyrics sticker on them. And it's not words like 'hell' or damn' or 'ass' but 'shit' and 'fuck.' Two off the top of my head that I know of are Puddle of Mudd's Life on Display in the song Away From Me and Taproot's Blue-Sky Research in the song April Suits.
P.o.M - Away From Me
..So here I am
I don't wanna be by myself
And I think you’re fucking someone else
now im gonna have to find a way
To take the knife out of my back
And how could you leave me
Stranded in a closet full of bones...
Taproot - April Suits
Season's change the fallen rain will wash the pain away
Make amends to help understand how to live today
It's not your fault I understand now I'm more a man
Choose a life to get me by not a life that passes by
On we march our April suits
On we march in our April boots
On we fucking march in our April suits,
march in our April boots
I don't know how they could get away with it, but I haven't heard anything been done for it. My point isn't that LP should try and 'hide' the cursing if they could, but other bands got away with it and it didn't stir up controversy (that I know of). The albums do look better without the Parental Advisory sticker on them, because the album covers themselves are works of art, and to taint them with a little b&w logo would suck. So, if it works, they should go with it. If not, no big deal. They're awesome either way, and I'll keep listening to them.
The only song that the word fuck made awsome imo is System Of A Down's cover of The Metro.
i think from hybrid theory a place for my head should've had a couple curses in there i know some people disagree but in the part where mike says "i am so sick of the tention sick of the hunger sick of you acting like i owe you this..." i think hunger should've been replaced with bullshit but thats just what i think
One random swearword on the album would throw it off, and I think that's why they went without it. A lot of the songs may or may not sound better with swearing. They could probably rewrite the album lyrics with every curse in the book, and would fit if all of the songs were like that. But they didn't...
That would be sweet side project... wink wink.
I don't care if bands curse, but I tip my hat to bands that can get through a song without resorting to cursing. It's so pointless if there's no meaning behind it.
Meh if it's an emotional song then they should curse like they would curse in a similar real life scenario
I think Where'd YouGo would've made more impact if he didn't say fuck and shit. Also, it's not a curse word, but it would've been way better without "burgers and ribs" lol
But somehow the song flows a little better with the 'fuck' and 'shit' included. Depends on the rythm of the music.
Where'd You Go flows REALLY well with the cursing. I am really surprised at how well Mike made it all sound.
Fuck, shit, burgers, ribs...it should all be included. That's one of the best songs he's ever worked on ever. Mike can really REALLY write some good songs man. I have so much respect for him it's unbelievable.
I think Mike and Chaz are underestimated or underappreciated as lyricists. I mean, when you can write a song and think of what they come up with (i.e. 'space odyssey monolithe, twist mic cords to double helixes, etc.'), it's undoubtably something special. They've been given the ability to write such dynamically flowing lyrics, and use past experiences to come up with them. It's truly unbelievable. I find it inspiring. My hats off to them, and I have the utmost respect for them because of it. LPs music truly is moving.
Ok, I'm done.
It is impressive how they have released these two anger-filled albums without saying an F or S word or any word. it tells you something that you can discharge this feelings you have without being vulgar.
I hope there is swearing
I hope there's so much swearing omg i mean if i got that behind my mom's back that'd show my mom not to be 5 minutes late picking me up from bible school lol rofl
just being sarcastic, like I don't understand why anyone would just want them cursing just to be cursing. Mike is a storyteller so I'm sure with the freedom that Rubin has kinda put upon them he'll put more emotion to his lines and Chester as well. I mean Chester's been through a lot more these last few years and I'm sure he has some things to say but them just randomly cursing would be pretty dumb.
Ahk, fair enough then.
And you make a good point there by the way.
