I am talking about the kind of lyrics that come right out of left field and are either completely stupid, out of place or fucking hilarious.

The most frequent example I hear around these parts would most likely be;

"I'm going to tear your ass up like we just got married" - The Starting Line's "Bedroom Talk"

"Hypothetically if you were point A
And theoretically if I was point B,
We would be, we would be frantically melting
Into one massive point
That could overcome anything"

The Spill Canvas - Teleport: A & B


That being said, I could probably find quite a few examples of 'wtf' on that album

Alot of the lyrics from the new Say Anything album are pretty horrible (and I like SA alot, especially Max's older lyrical content), but this is the first one that springs to mind (from a song that wouldn't be out of place on a Metro Station album);

"You're no witch, you're no wench,
You're like Bjork with better fashion sense"

The term "come on your face" appears twice on Saves The Day-Under The Boards. Led to quite a few WTFs.

I know this is supposed to be about good bands but "Tell your boyfriend if he says he's got beef that I'm a vegetarian and I ain't fucking scared of him" has to be the worst and most random

"Do you remember the time I knew a Girl From Mars?
I don't know if you knew that.
Oh we'd stay up late playing cards,
Henri Winterman Cigars.
Though she never told me her name,
I still love you, Girl From Mars."

-Ash, "Girl From Mars"

I guess they aren't THAT "wtf?-worthy" but it always kept me from listening to the rest of the song

I quoted The Spill Canvas, a band who have a discography of maybe 5 good songs. It's all legit
