    He's never felt the need to put cussing in his lyrics (At least to my knowledge..) It gives the band an air of respectablity, rather than all these bands that cuss for pure shock value...

    Bands use swearing as a means of communicating feelings.

    And if it is through these simple words that they need to use to convey thru LYRICS then pitty them.

    Cussing should be used as "on the spot" language. If you know what i mean.

    Lyrics should really be well thought out, indepth and meaningful, using a more substantial use of words to get across feelings of hatred etc.

    Shit...hmm

    It's generally only the mainstream acts that do that. I've never heard an 'underground' bands swearing anyway.

    Depends on the music. I also think it's nice that he never put any swearing in. But if I'm listening to Dying Fetus or SYL or some other pissed-off extreme band.. it just seems to go with it.

    I don't think that one 'fuck' in a whole album constitutes as exorbitant 'cussing'.

    yeah.. there's some respectable cussing out there.. sometimes it fits..

    I wouldn't respect a band saying "I do what I want so fuckin' back off motha******"

    but, Katatonia, for instance, have the line "too much fucking emo" which I think fits...

    I suppose cussing can be used for emphasis, but if someone has a halfway decent command of whatever language they're writting in, they'll find more eloquent ways to express their strong feelings.

    Ps. I like artists who use swear words not for shock value, but to display distaste. or anger or some other bad emotion. Artists who use swear words sparingly, at the right time, lose no respect in my eyes. Like Tool, and the swear words on Aenima, most of them are quite tastefully displayed and not gratuitious.

    I don't have a problem with cussing when it's actually necessary, however, MANY mainstream artists use cussing to show how "rebellious" they are, and they overuse it in the lamest way possible.

    "If I say fuck, two more times, that's 46 fucks in this fucked-up rhyme" is the second worst lyric I've ever heard, right behind Slipknot's "If you're 555 I'm 666, what's it like to be a heretic?"
