Here are a collection of quotes from comic book fan on the subject.
I agree lyrics are more important to me as well anyone can make a catchy tune it take talent to wright a meaningful song.
and other than the great bands they influenced I haven't gotten why their so well liked I have always thought they were overrated but a lot of my favorite bands were influenced by them and they wrote some decent songs they weren't just a catchy band.
my point is give me a couple of months to learn to play an instrument and I could play something that would get stuck in your head but it takes real talent to trigger an emotion every time you hear it.
same with music once your good enough than work on song writing you don't have to be a Jimi Hendrix for me to listen to you .
that's all I am saying.
So you say lyrics are more important than the music. I heavily disagree with that statement, but whatever. Then you go on to say that song writing is more important than playing. I do somewhat agree with that, but if you write something you can't play, then you're fucked. Except then you say The Beatles were over-rated. This can only mean one thing. You like super intricate song-writing. Which is fine, somewhat. But then you have to appreciate how people play, because not everyone can play super intricate stuff. Anyone can play The Beatles. Some songs really aren't that hard. But who were the geniuses that were able to use pop chords in so many different ways to create so many fantastic songs? The Beatles. That's why they're the best ever.
You say Nirvana is one of your favorite bands ever, yet you favor lyricism. IRONY!
