My Favorite Lyricists

fuck bitches; get money
1Bob Dylan
Blood on the Tracks


Even though Dylan hasn't applied himself as a songwriter or lyricist for over thirty years (time out of mind was ok i guess...) this Minnesota jew by way of New York is the gold standard for lyrical quality.
2The Mountain Goats
Nothing for Juice


John Darnielle is more a wordsmith than a musician. His prose takes center stage behind usually minimalist chords but they burn brighter alone, front and center, than veiled behind a mist of instrumentation; naked and unobstructed for all to see.
3The National
Boxer


Matt Berninger's words cut with the precision of a surgical scalpel, pinpoint and direct, stabbing at the most affected areas of the soul. Making his lyrics even more immediate, his somewhat detached vocal style chimes like church bells off in the distance, offering a makeshift salvation for those searching for sanctuary.
4The Hold Steady
Stay Positive


Craig Finn is the American nerd Jesus Christ.
5Frank Turner
Love, Ire & Song


Punk aesthetics and acoustic guitars are nothing new, especially in this post-Hot Water Music world, but when Frank speaks he demands your attention. He is a lighthouse of positivism, directing the jaded and the damned through the fog of every day life.
6Death Cab for Cutie
Transatlanticism


So what if every girl you knew in high school loved Death Cab. So what if Ben Gibbard's tongue only spews sappy, overwrought emotional baggage. He does it damn good. Too damn good.
