Dumb lyrics often mean I won't bother buying it.

For example, Rush has maybe 2 "love"songs in their entire catalog. Metallica? None.
Whether I forgive dumb lyrics depends. It's okay with me if I really like the music. Prog bands were notorious for gauche, silly lyrics. Never worked out any Rush lyrics - can't make out the words :)
