Future Dogs Die in Kaiser Ferdinand Hot Hot Car Party

On Friday, there was an article in The Guardian about the state of song lyrics today.

My beloved Coldplay takes a thrashing, but after listening to X&Y enough times to form an opinion, I have to grudgingly agree with the writer's assessment. You have to ask if music can make up for lyrics of questionable quality.

The article has a decidedly British slant (it is The Guardian after all), but the songs and bands mentioned in the article make for an interesting playlist. Listen to some of the worst (and best) lyrics and decide for yourself.
