You can't separate the lyrics from the person singing them.
Between mealy-mouthed singers like John Arch, and
Irony: In an attempt to be provocative, you use one of the better lyricists in metal. Interesting choice.

Rock ("Pop" music, by definition) lyrics can run the gamut, and metal lyrics aren't any different in that regard. For every Dane there's 5 Danzigs, but that's nothing new.

Enunciation and pronunciation can also run the gamut. I can clearly understand every word of the extremely dumb lyrics on Priest's "Painkiller", but them being dumb doesn't lessen the impact.

Enjoy the lyrics, or don't. Enjoy the vocals, or don't. It's art. Don't over-think it.
