Language can be used to evoke laughter and love. It can be wielded like a sword to topple kingdoms. It can also be used to convey the filthy sex stuff we want to do to each other, and it can also make us retch from obscene, graphic detail.
Sure, we all enjoy a good bawdy lyric from time to time. Unfortunately, these aren't those. These lyrics go one step beyond simple eyebrow raises and ironic appreciation. These lyrics creep into the realm of, "Why the fuck would someone say that for the world to hear in a song?" These are lyrics you pray your sweet mother up in heaven isn't judging you for knowing, reciting, and, in some cases, liking.
Please note this list is most definitely NSFW, and certainly not for those easily offended. There are some "A-Words" and "F-Words" included, as well as a "C-Word" or two (not that C-Word, the other C-Word). Complex can't be held responsible if your boss happens to walk by and your normal cover-up of hitting SHIFT+2 in Chrome is thwarted when your six-year-old work laptop freezes and they see you are reading about analingus on the Original Buyer's Guide for Men. They'll probably be like, "Wow, I had no idea someone else in the office read Complex. That's my homepage. Also, you're fired." Ouch. Tough break. You've been warned.
These lyrics were selected and ranked off intangible factors like explicitness, raunchiness, humor, shock, graveness, niche of fetish, and imagery evoked. A serious lyric about necrophilia is going to beat out a jokey lyric about bestiality. The more descriptive the better. The more heebie-jeebies felt, the higher the rank. Feel free to disagree (but you're definitely wrong) and share any lyrics with us that might have gotten left off (though that's doubtful). Also, go ahead and run the shower. You'll want it nice and warm to wash away the ordure when you get done reading.
