It's only words (which might rhyme)
And if words are all they have to take your heart away, they just might have their work cut out for them; many wonderful ingredients are combined to make the best rock and roll songs, but inspiring lyrics seldom will be found among them. ("Rock lyrics are doggerel, maybe." Dave Marsh)
Those surly folks at The Hatemonger's Quarterly would like your nominations for the worst single line in, as Casey Kasem used to call it, "the rock era." I rather expect that their mailboxes will overflow rather quickly with genuine, unadulterated dreck.
