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.
Danzig wrote some awesome lyrics! Who can deny the brilliance of "Mother"? He wrote a lot of amazing lyrics on those first few solo albums. He only got seriously stupid later.
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.
See also: basically every other Judas Priest lyric since the 80s started :) They only look good by comparison to Accept.
