Default Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?

In the songwriting process with my band I write almost all of the lyrics so I would say its very important to me.

There is a big trend among these hipster bands to have silly lyrics with no real meaning to them. I think it's just neuters any brilliance to the whole composition. I'd rather hear a guy singing "baby baby baby" than a free association of meaningless crap. Older songs and pop tunes (and Dio) get a pass in my book but I really don't care for lame lyrics.
Classy grip all day.
