Lyrically, what would you say is the best Guns song.


Recommended Posts

If you rip out the music and just focus on the lyrics, Which song would you say is the strongest by Guns? 

Personally i would have to go Rocket Queen simply for the last part (I see you standin', Standin on your own...)

Was never too big on the released version of the song, but Oh My God has amazing lyrics. I feel like a properly mixed Bucket version would kick it up a few notches as a whole.

Coma and TWAT also come to mind, and Better.

Estranged if we're talking about the epic  'Axl' songs

Brownstone and Nightrain have simpler but clever lyrics. Most of AFD has clever lyrics hence why it's so highly regarded.

Chi Dem lyrics are hit and miss but TWAT and Better are high points.

Difficult to choose just one song.

Coma

Locomotive

Civil War

Don't Damn Me, especially

Don't hail me and don't idolize the ink
Or I've failed in my intentions, can you find the missing link?
Your only validation is living your own life
Vicarious existence is a fucking waste of time

So I send this song to the offended
I said what I meant and I've never pretended
As so many others do, intending just to please
If I damned your point of view, could you turn the other cheek?

Yeah I thought about those two myself as well. Like you said and like SCOM their lyrics are simpler but they hit the bulls eye... well,  speaking about hitting the bulls eye... I always loved the lyrics to It's So Easy... "and I'm bored!" :smiley-confused2:

Locomotive, Coma, Don't Damn Me, Better, Madagascar are the first that come to mind.

Some lyrics on AfD are quite good as well. My Michelle (it conjures a whole complex story with a few sentences), Rocket Queen and SCOM.

It is a toss up between Rocket Queen, Coma, Locomotive, Civil War, and Estranged.

 

Estranged was the first the came to mind, but I think Civil War might be the one I'd choose if pressured. 

Civil war has such a powerful message I find. And is a close second for me after RQ

Exactly this, these are the ones I’d choose. Probably add The Garden too.
