­It's just annoying.

For a song to be good it needs to have intriguing lyrics - words that make you want to listen to the rest of the song, that make you wonder what it is about, that capture your imagination. This is what makes great songs great - lyrics that are compelling and intriguing; and pleasant, enjoyable music that doesn't distract from them, music that helps you to concentrate on the lyrics and helps emphasize the intended emotions that the lyrics are supposed to evoke and convey.

­I'm guessing if that is actually a song, it must be rap, which I don't listen to.

No, by intriguing lyrics I mean songs like these:

They had smaller hits.

Robin Trower got his start there.

­I understand immature teenage anger and angst; most of us went through that and have long since outgrown it.

Unfortunately those who turn to drugs during their adolescence have their emotional and psychological development halted at whatever age they were when they first began abusing them, so they are rendered permanently immature with the psychological development of a teenager, and the musical taste that so often accompanies it.

­I don't watch Dr. Phil.

What I know of human nature is derived from personal introspection and my observation of others - comprehending their motives.
