DON'T LET DOUG PODELL READ THIS!!!

(Yahoo) The folks at Yahoo Music have put together a list of the Top 10 Worst Rock Lyricists of All-Time and Paul McCartney, without question the world's most popular and successful lyricist, is at number-10.

Writer Rob O'Connor argues, "McCartney chooses to be lousy. He's smart enough to write something decent. But he's lazy like a pothead." As evidence, he cites "Live and Let Die" ("In this ever-changing world in which we live in") and says "Sometimes you get so rich the rules of decent grammar never apply."

Gene Simmons is number-three: "It's as if he aimed for the worst lyrics possible. First thought, only thought. Time is money. Get it over with and move on."

Jon Bon Jovi is number-two: "Bon Jovi often wonders why he isn't taken more seriously. The guy's never met a cliché he couldn't marry."

The complete list:

  1. Alanis Morissette
  2. Jon Bon Jovi of Bon Jovi
  3. Gene Simmons of KISS
  4. Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries
  5. Trey Anastasio of Phish
  6. Gavin Rossdale - Bush
  7. Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes
  8. Neil Peart of Rush
  9. Jewel
