Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Rattlesnake"
The Funny Lyrics:
I hate your band, you understand?
You got no passion, it's all fashion
Well you come you can, come come true
You don't know, you got no clue I see through
Your a rattlesnake
And your full of s***
I f****** hate you
Why They're Funny:
They're not that funny on their own, but Tim from the band said that the way they sang the song and it's lyrics reflect (and poke fun) rap 'artists' whose whole songs consists of making fun of other 'artists.' that's pretty damn funny.
