Lots of artists have made Charles Bukowski references in their music, lets list some.

These are all great songs. I doubt I could find any other one though.

Really @ Chiodos? Where?

So weird that Craig wrote awesome lyrics influenced by Shakespeare and other poets, but D.R.U.G.S.' lyrics are some of the worst around.

Teeth The Size of Piano Keys is mostly quotes from the poem I'm In Love. Bone Palace Ballet is named after a book of poetry and I believe a few other songs have quotes as well.

I think Craig's old lyrics were a lot better too, but DRUGS lyrics are not as bad as people make them seem. And they certainly are not the worst around.

Yeah, I just compared I'm In Love to Teeth a few minutes ago, and it's crazy all the references.

I find DRUGS lyrics lame, especially "Sex Life", because if there's one thing I hate, it's people who have to call out "haters". Sounds so juvenile.

I'm not a fan of Sex Life either. Also the lyrics during the bridge in Mr. Owl are really bad too (although the chorus of that song is really catchy). The rest of the songs on the self-titled I like.
