"Terrible" as written by Joseph Bruce and Mike E. Clark....
MOTHERFUCKER! YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT, DO YOU?
YOU WOULDN'T KNOW SHIT IF IT WHIP KICKED YOU
IN YOUR UGLY BITCH-ASS FACE.
YOU AIN'T EVEN BEGUN TO EXPERIENCE DRAMA, MOTHERFUCKER.
YOUR MAMMA,
YOUR MOTHERFUCKING BIG FAT CHICKEN FACE ASS MAMMA,
don't EVEN KNOW ABOUT THIS DRAMA, MOTHERFUCKER!

(1st Verse- Violent J)
Oh my god! look at that turn it up please
Poor Nancy Kerrigan's sweet little knees
Somebody took a black thing and went thump
That's TEEERRRIBlE! We heard about it for months
What about that one nobody guy that they found?
Dead in the grass with his, dick in his ass
Plus there was more but you won't recall
Because Micheal Jackson squeezed up on some little kids balls
What you consider...DRAMA
Ain't all that, it's just that you're wack
with your intergalatic satellite data compress
But we can't feed the homeless
Then OJ's wack story unfolded
And everybody watched that while Oklahoma exploded
900 good reasons why this world really don't care
THAT'S WHEN IT CALLS FOR A WHEELCHAIR!

(Chorus- Violent J)
What you know 'bout terrible?
[YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT'S TERRIBLE] (x2)

Yeah she's so terrible you gotta beat her you BITCH-ASS WACK MOTHERFUCKER!

(2nd Verse- Shaggy2Dope)
LOOOORRDY-lord have we got a protest, man
Some rock-and-roll ninja bit the head off a bat
Was watching his concert, and channeled to hell
'cause he's so fucking TEERRRIBLE
Meanwhile his records sell double and triple
'cause of you crying about him rubbing his nipple
Religious? Shit, you helped them bang
Instead of helping them poor people eating out of them garbage cans
When you're done with them bitch, come protest me
Shit, motherfucker I could use some money
The whole world was crying when Kurt's gun went BANG!
When Eazy-E died though, it wasn't no thang
Rapper dies of A.I.D.S. but you hardly mention
Rocker blows his face off and becomes a legend
Everyone grab a shotgun, a hero is made
Maybe I should do that shit so J can get paid

(Chorus)

Are your kids so terrible you gotta beat on them too
YOU DRUNK MOTHERFUCKER!!

[Rebel Flag] In your schools
[Rebel Flag] In your parks
[Rebel Flag] In your courtrooms
[Rebel Flag] In your hearts
[Rebel Flag] Stood for slavery
[Rebel Flag] Stood for war
[Rebel Flag] Stood for hatred
but just go ahead and hang your flag up some more!
[Don't worry about my goddamn flag boy
what's terrible is you damn rappers cursin']

(3rd Verse- Shaggy2Dope)
The country we live in was biult by slaves
Beat down and murdered and stuffed in their graves
You put a slave owner on the one dollar bill
And you want to know why I KILLLL PEOPLE!
(Violent J)
Bombs are blowing up, cops are corrupt
And all you care about is who the president fucked?
You don't know terrible...you will
as soon as our wagons come over the hill!!

(Chorus repeats to end)

    General CommentI think this is my favorite ICP song, it has a great message. I don't think it's all about the media's portrayal of events though. Mostly how people go nuts over one thing, while ignoring a real problem such as racists, bigots, homelessness, ect.

    General CommentI think this is the most insightful ICP song.

    "La di da we gotta protest that
    Some rock and roll ninja bit the head off a rat
    Let\'s march in his concert and chant \'em to hell
    Cause he\'s so fuckin TERRIBLE!
    Meanwhile his record sales double and triple
    Cause of YOU worrying bout him rubbin his nipple
    Religious? Shit, you helped them bands
    Instead of helpin them poor people eatin outta them garbage cans"

    It's true. The more those moronic Christian radicals protest the "immoral" behavior of rockstars, the more money they make. Remember when Marilyn Manson released "Antichrist Superstar?" Enough said.

    "You put a slave owner on a 1 dollar bill
    And you wanna know why I kill people!!!!"

    With how much we idolize such people as George Washington, we tend to forget they were all slave owners. Not to mention sexist, and they decimated the Native American population...Pioneers of freedom indeed.
    With all the seriousness, they still squeeze a funny line into this song:

    "Let me get a look at that bitch ass of yours
    There it is, it looks like a bitches ass you bitch ass muthafucka!!!!"

    ^-^ Ha ha.

    General Comment...He talks about Kurt Cobain...man I was a huge ICP fan but they sound like stupid ass idiots when they talk about how everybofy was upset when Kurt died and they didn't really cared when eazy-e died. Kurt changed the music for life. He was a hero...Eazy-E was just another low life rapper who rapped about sex and drugs...look at his music and look at Nirvanas...I don't even know that much about Eazy-E(and don't really care)but...damn this makes me wonder about ICP...I know im probley gonna catch shit for this but hey bring it on...R.I.P KURT COBAIN 67-94

    General CommentKurt changed the hair metal era to grunge, which is pretty much gone now too. Sure he had a big impact at the time, but so did Eazy-E.

    Eazy-E helped introduce rap, especially gansta rap, which is still around. In fact Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, who were also in NWA are still quite sucessful.

    I like both, but I'll take Eazy-E over Nirvana on most days.

    General CommentStraight up, phukk Nirvana I hate that phukkin band. The shit sounds all the same, vocals suck too. But anyway, this song is my favorite of all time no question, ICP put it down on this track.

    General CommentI think 'freakishfae' explained this song pretty well, but he forgot one thing.

    "Oh my God look at that, turn it up please
    Poor Nancy Kerrigan\'s sweet little knees
    Somebody took a black thing and went thump
    Thats terrible he heard about it for months
    What about that one nobody guy that they found?
    Dead in the grass
    With his dick in his ass."

    America stops on a dime whenever some pretty white girl dies, but when some random dude gets whacked, only about a handfull of people remotely care. Hell, sometimes the family cares more about the dead chick on the news then thier murdered uncle. ICP hit about every good point with this song. Anyone who thinks ICP isn't out to spread a message should listen to this and be kicked in the head.
