I've been addicted to music since my early teen age years. I found that punk rock, emo, hardcore and metal spoke to me, I could relate to it. The music was good and enjoyable, but I was always the most interested in the lyrics of a song, the message that was being put out there.
Most music on the radio doesn't have a message or motivation behind it anymore. Punk, emo, hardcore, metal, it was all started to deliver a message in the face of the mainstream.
I started this lyric database a long time ago as a personal project. As I listen to music, I like to read the lyrics. Sometimes I will get a song stuck in my head and I go crazy trying to figure out who, and what song it is. Having hundreds of songs and artists to search through in one place was the motivation behind it, simple as that. With digital music players like iPods, and smart phones, who carries around the album liner notes anymore?
The lyrics here are submitted by people like you, the users of the site. Because of that we have lyrics that you most likely wont be able to find anywhere else on the web, like demos of local bands and long forgotten albums that didn't make it big.
Thank you to all the bands that put themselves on display for us to pick over on a daily basis. Thank you to the writers of the lyrics that have helped change my life, and given me hope through the years. A big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to type up the lyrics of their favorite bands and submit them. With out the bands, labels, and fans this site wouldn't exist and I wouldn't be who I am today.
