What’s grosser than gross?

Blender has produced the list of the 12 filthiest lyrics of all time. Now, while I understand that most of the choices are pretty vulgar, it’s an interesting choice, as all the lyrics are sexual.

The argument could be made that “filthy” is relative. D12‘s “Shit On You” is probably more expletive-laden than Peaches‘ “Fuck the Pain Away.” Hell, anything Eminem ever did (especially, say, “Kim”, “’97 Bonnie & Clyde”, or “Guilty Conscience”) trumps the simple “beat da pussy up” retardation that is the Ying Yang Twins‘ “Wait.”

Shocking’s easy. Any asshat can string a series of offensive words togetehr and make a career out of it. *cough*Li’l John*cough* It takes talent to do something that’s shocking, vulgar, and actually has meaning beyond repeated profanity. Christ, Jack Grisham wrote “Code Blue” 25 years ago, and it’s still something I know I’m going to have trouble explaining to my kids when they get older.
