Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?
Lady Gaga isn't the kind of artist I would refer when talking about profound or especially skillfully written lyrics. Repetition to the point of becoming an ear worm is a sign of filler, which is a symptom of a lack of things to say, which is the exact opposite of having lyrics. If you have nothing to say, why are you talking at all?
System Of A Down, being my favorite band of all time, obviously grabs me with everything they do, and the lyrics are no exception. They're not repetitive to the point of annoying, they're sensible, some are intriguingly cryptic, and they almost always have a point behind them that I can actually think about, granted it takes a bit of thought by itself to decipher them.
