Excellent question, Mark, and I think this ends up in misc, since it covers more of an aspect of music than actual albums or anything. But, I might be wrong. For me, yes, after a fasion. I mean, I listen to metal, so I put up with a lot of useless "God is dead, I hate god, god sucks, god blows, you have no idea how bored I was this weekend, god isn't real, if god was real, he'd hate you, come to think of it, I hate you" lyrics. I try to avoid bands that make a career out of such things (Deicide, for example. A song, maybe an album, I can see, but not an entire discography), in favor of ones who generally are more capable of writing something worth quoting. I also dislike the gore lyrics, as they just do nothing for me at all (i.e. Cannibal Corpse). I mean, I'm not religious or a prude, but you can only flog a dead horse so many times on the same album, folks. Doesn't stop me from giving bands a listen, but it does stop me from really getting into them. Like Superjoint Ritual. Okay band, I guess, but on A Lethal Dose, Phil calls them (uh, terrorists, Middle Easterners, he's not too specific) sandn****rs. Talk about leaving a bad taste in my mouth for the entire band. Thoughts, opinions, dissent?
