Rhyme Crime: Worst Rhymes in Music

Some of these are pretty funny. And Dylan at #1?!? But I think the commentary on that one might have some merit.

Re: Rhyme Crime: Worst Rhymes in Music

I'm not surprised that Dylan's at #1. He wrote some pretty wacky stuff. I don't fault him for it, though, I mean it's part of his style.

He cracks on Jimmy Buffett? Heck, I blow out a flip flop and step on a pop tart every time I go to Margaritaville. That's the whole purpose, ain't it?

Re: Rhyme Crime: Worst Rhymes in Music

Eh, balls to those chumps. I don't think you can have bad rhymes. Bad lyrics... MAYBE, and I'm not even sure if bad lyrics are possible, but bad rhymes? If it rhymes at all then it has served its purpose, and if it doesn't rhyme at all then it's just stylish. If I had to believe everybody when they say one of my favorite lines is silly or pathetic, then I would be a poor poor man. Fact is, a lot of stuff that means something to us will sound silly to people who it don't feel it like we do.

Yeah. You know how skeptical I am of Dylan in particular, I think he was bullshitting a lot of the time. But he's also written plenty of my favorite lyrics of all-time. Just because he might be bullshitting doesn't mean his rhymes are bad. That verse from Ballad of a Thin Man, I frankly think, is brilliant. I think half the battle of lyrics is getting people to believe you, and Dylan's literacy accomplishes that goal for him I think.

Ram Jam, "Black Betty"...
From the Hall of Fame of Dumbass Lyrics, this song is also famous for having the worst guitar solo of all time.

The guy who wrote this is a geek.

I hear ya!

How about this one...

"Niggas in the Bronx,
Call me Lex cause I push a Lex,
And I rock a Rolex,
And I lounge on Lex',
And I love sex.
