    My vote is for "One I Want" from Van Halen III

    Some people on this board speak of the great emotional depth that is often conveyed in the lyrics of Gary Cherone, but I have to question that statement when I see these "gems" he wrote in this song. (God these lyrics make me cringe. I actually feel embarressed for him, when I hear these lyrics)

    Some examples from "One I Want" that make me cringe:

    "Superman, he looking for Lois"
    "Pizzaman, just wanna slice"
    "Strawman, don't have a leg to stand on"
    "Whiteman, tryin' to get a tan"
    "Boogieman, he giving me the creeps"

    C'Mon now! These sound like they were written by a 6th grader.

    For me, it would have to be "Source of Infection" from OU812. Here's a sample of Sam's poetry at its worst:

    "Hey!
    Alright!
    Woo!
    How 'bout 'cha now, come on!
    Oh yeah!
    Dig it! That's right
    Is everybody ready? Let's go!"

    I agree Guitar Shark: That one makes me cringe as well. But I put One I Want first, if nothing else because at the very least "Source Of Infection" is redeemed somewhat, by virtue of the PHENOMINAL guitar work by EVH.

    That intro kicks ass!

    BrokenCombs is right... "One I Want" is terrible. "Can't Stop Lovin' You" sucks hardcore ass as well.

    Welcome back, Van HALEN!!!!

    What a worthless topic. Yeah, I listen to Van Halen for the profound lyrics...

    Eddie took numerous shots at Sam for his lyrics. But Ole Ed didn't excatly step to the plate with "How Many Say I". The music is awful, and the lyrics are also vomit-inducing.

    I can't think of the rest...but it's pretty bad. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    You've got these awesome background vocals that are begging for something deep, but Sam, pardon the pun, is belting about eating twat. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    Yeah, I don't know why lyrics are so important to some people. This is Van Halen, a fun, partying rock band. I don't think their lyrics are supposed to be taken very seriously.

    Gonna have to go with Loss of Control simply because everything in that song sucks as bad as the lyrics
