Too bad this excellent song cannot be found on YouTube:

This thread is now called "Headbang City" and you can only post if you're wearing a Slayer shirt.

So I really like The Shins, but haven't taken the time to pay attention to all the lyrics of their songs.  Some are really, really interesting.  It's also hard to understand what he says, and he's often misquoted.. he seems to construct songs where one word can easily be replaced by another that sounds almost exactly the same, but the meaning still works or changes slightly.  Also, what is printed on the lyrics sheet doesn't seem to be exactly what he sings in the album, and I've heard he changes lyrics around when performing live.  ("He"  here is James Mercer.).

Here is "Sleeping Lessons":



Amongst the cool lines:

"Just put yourself in my new hooves
And see that I do what I do
Because the old guard still offend
(Their pudgy hearts and slimy hands)
They've got nothing left on which we depend
So enlist every ounce
Of your bright blood
And off with their heads"

(Notably, "hooves" surely sounds like he says "shoes", but I actually looked it up on the CD insert.

The Shins are so good. I really like the way he sings even though I usually have no clue what James Mercer is saying (though maybe I should be paying closer attention).  Have you listened to Guster? You might like them too.

On a heavier note, not metal but music you'd listen to while driving fast down a desert highway.
EDIT: It's actually pretty damn heavy. And the video can't be viewed except from youtube.

Yay :) There were "non-girly" songs before.

Continuing with The Shins, here is another good one:



I particularly like the opening lines:

You can fake it for a while
Bite your tongue and smile
Like every mother does her ugly child
But the stars are leaking out
Like spittle from a cloud
Amassed resentment counting ounce and pound

Yes, because SP is a colloquial abbreviation for the Scrying Pool dominion card and is also recognized as the abbreviation for Smashing Pumpkins.

Not the genre I usually listen to, but I still like it.
The video is kinda off-topic?
