The debate about the music industry being on the decline has been around for ages. But in my opinion, they only have themselves to blame. I mean, basically there are only three songs mainstream music pumps out now, only they put different variations on them.
There is the breathy chick song that goes: "Oh baby, baby, baby, you're my baby love, Oooooh, oooooh, baby, let's stay together forever, baby love, baby."
Then there is the hip hop "This is why I am awesome and you are not" song: "I'm pimpin,' you suckin', I gots lots of girls, you got none, they love my (insert slang for a wide range of expensive objects here)."
And then there is the whiny college guy song: "Sitting here in a hotel room, you ripped my heart out of my chest, etc (add lots of big, unnecessary words and long piano solos)."
But bad music is bad music is bad music and it has been around since the first caveman started singing about boinking his woman on the head with a club. And to prove it, here are the Top 10 worst lyrics in modern music compiled by Spinner magazine.
#10 "I'm all out of faith, this is how I feel." Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn"- Good thing she clarified that was how she felt
#9 "Now you're amazed by the VIP posse, Steppin' so hard like a German Nazi." Vanilla Ice's "Play That Funky Music" -Because as a white rapper, references to Nazis is a great decision. Maybe next he could bring up the KKK.

#6 "Your butt is mine" -Michael Jackson's "Bad" -Beyond creepy coming from this man.
#5 But if this ever-changing world in which we live in" -Paul McCartney's "Live and Let Die" -English teachers around the world are scratching their eyes out in horror at that sentence structure.
#4 "Young, black and famous, With money hangin' out the anus" Puff Daddy and Mase's "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" -I think I'd prefer the slang
#3 "I don't like cities, But I like New York, Other places make me feel like a dork." Madonna's "I Love New York" -I miss the coned bra days.
#2 "War is stupid, And people are stupid." Culture Club's "War Song" -And you're stupid.
