    Teen lesbians are first and foremost, followed by ballads about broken love, tax law, and my favorite- songs about my nascar heroes.

    I don't care what lyrics say as much as I care how a band express themselves, like using somo rare words (i'm not talking about gore-clinical-"cannibal-corpse" like terms) but like a not-often used vocabulary, because to me what makes metal a genre above many other genres is the fact that is more complex. When a band starts using foul words, and they start saying "fuck" and "shit" and the like, I feel the impression that they are just a buch of hardcore fags trying to look cool by using unproper language.

    Like for example, children of bodom, i hate the lyrics, but the musicianship is what really saves them.

    But if I were to choose a theme, I would say that i like psychological, deep, philosophical or poetic topic, like cynic, nightwish, symphony X, opeth etc

    The usual... misanthropy, hate, depression, nihilism, transcendence, war... mostly anti-society, anti-human type stuff.

    Haha.Yes.
    You know what's great? I actually thought it was fucking hilarious, but that's what you get from watching old videos of Beavis and Butthead all night.

Some of the music is alright though.

    I really like aggressive lyrics like hate and anger. Or anything that has to do with the way I feel or live.

    What I enjoy:
    1) war
    2) the devil

    What I avoid:
    1) anything that seems "Mad at my Dad"
    2) too much swearing starts to feel... rappy for lack of a better word -- just lyrically lazy
    3) songs where society just doesn't understand the band's/singer's feelings. Even when the guy then wants to rampage and destroy it just seems pathetic somehow, like a toddler throwing a tantrum.
