OH, I'm sorry...you've been disqualified for trying to use the phrase 'bad ass' to describe Freddy Mercury. Thanks for playing, anyways, and we've got some lovely parting gifts for you.

No lyric has ever compared in bad-assedness to Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison in 1955:

I shot a man in Reno
Just to watch him die.

"Ha ha, charade you are."

Big man, pig man, ha ha, charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha, charade you are
And when your hand is on your heart
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost a joker
With your head down in the pig bin
Saying "keep on digging"
Pig stain on your fat chin
What do you hope to find?
When you're down in the pig mine
You're nearly a laugh
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.
Bus stop rat bag, ha ha, charade you are
You fucked up old hag, ha ha, charade you are
You radiate cold shafts of broken glass
You're nearly a good laugh
Almost worth a quick grin
You like the feel of steel
You're hot stuff with a hat pin
And good fun with a hand gun
You're nearly a laugh
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.
Hey you Whitehouse, ha ha, charade you are
You house proud town mouse, ha ha, charade you are
You're trying to keep our feelings off the street
You're nearly a real treat
All tight lips and cold feet
And do you feel abused?
.....!.....!.....!.....!
You gotta stem the evil tide
And keep it all on the inside
Mary you're nearly a treat
Mary you're nearly a treat
But you're really a cry.

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that it's a grand illusion
And deep inside we're all the same.

Someday soon we'll stop to ponder what on earth's this spell we're under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

Styx - The Grand Illusion

I'll grant you the 'powerful', I'd even go so far as 'epic'... just not Bad-ass, I'm sorry.

I enjoy Mercury's singing, I feel I should point out. His lyrics, often, not-so-much. Then again, there are the classics...seems like the 'Greatest Hits' will keep me just fine, I don't necessarily wanna buy those albums.

here's 3:

"You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby,
I don't wanna live for ever,
And don't forget the joker!"
- Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead)

"Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint"
- Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones)

"..but baby, Since I've Been Loving You.. I'm about to lose my worried mind." - Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin)

Don't worry, your choice Sabbath quote didn't get overlooked this guy.. So many great lyrics from Sabbath in the 70s.. this is a great one.

the difference between a "crowd" and a "mob" is one push

"Know your place in life is where you want to be
Don't let them tell you that you owe it all to me
Keep on looking forward, no use in looking 'round
Hold your head above the crowd and they won't bring you down

Anthem of the heart and anthem of the mind
A funeral dirge for eyes gone blind
We marvel after those who sought
The wonders of the world, wonders of the world
Wonders of the world they wrought

Live for yourself
There's no one else more worth living for
Begging hands and bleeding hearts
Will only cry out for more

Well, I know they've always told you
Selfishness was wrong
Yet it was for me, not you
I came to write this song"

Rush, Anthem


"While in the streets of all our fears
They reign supreme as orders go
They are the last to have their say
And last to know it doesn't matter how you try
It doesn't matter what you say
They always watch with hollow eyes
To put you down they always find a way to criticise

The vultures fly high
They circle over us all
The vultures fly high
I'll take your hand if you fall

All those who sheltered in their smile
Are scattered here from yesterday
And if the weak are left behind
They have to pay and though you haven't much to give
You know they take it, yours and mine
Sometimes it looks as though we lose
But then in time the finger points at them
The next in line"

Renaissance, the Vultures Fly High

Not bad-ass, but the greatest couplet ever penned:

Guess I'm gonna have to tell 'em
That I've got no cerebellum


-Ramones
"Teenage Lobotomy"

I'm also partial to:

I said, "I'm so happy, I could die."
She said, "Drop dead," and left with another guy.


-Elvis Costello
"(The Angels Want to Wear My) Red Shoes"

/both from the 70s

You want bad-ass 70's lyrics? Here's your bad-ass 70's lyrics:

Who can take a sunrise,
Sprinkle it with dew
Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can, cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow,
Wrap it in a sigh
Soak it in the sun and make a strawberry-lemon pie
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can, cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

The candy man makes everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes
You can even eat the dishes

Who can take tomorrow,
Dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The candy man
The candy man can
The candy man can, 'cause he mixes it with love
And makes the world taste good

And the world tastes good
Because the candy man thinks it should

-Sammy Davis Jr.

Listen up, you bozos. My man Sammy is the swingin'est cat I know. Ring a ding ding.



Please don't talk about him now that he's gone.
And listen
If you can't say anything that's nice
It's better not to talk at all
Is my advice

For Bad-ass lyrics, Jim Morrison would be tough to beat. "Riders on the Storm" and "Who Do You Love" come to mind.
