Most Quotable Albums Ever

In your opinion, that is. If you want to, include a lyric that represents the album’s quotable-ness the most for you.

My picks would be:

Of Montreal - Skeletal Lamping
"You only like him cause
He’s sexually appealing
But I read his journal
It was very revealing
He fucked your sister
In an elevator junior year
Oh yeah oh yeah" - Beware Our Nubile Miscreants

Kanye West - Yeezus
"I I just talked to Jesus
He said, "What up, Yeezus?“
I said, “Shit I’m chillin’
Tryna stack these millions”” - I Am a God

Danny Brown - XXX
"Handle any situation
I smoke blunts to the face to stay motivated
Irritated when I’m not sedated
Fuck her face like I was obligated
And still fucking with them freak hoes
Stank pussy smelling like Cool Ranch Doritos" - Monopoly

Death Grips - The Money Store
" Now backstroke
Through your k-hole
Don’t run, you might slip
The table’s flipped, now we got all the coconuts, bitch!" - Hacker

Death Grips - The Powers that B
"I’ve got the powers that B
Running through me
My favorite color is oh my god bitch
I’m wearing black gloves through your mall, I’m rich
You wanna check my pockets but—" - The Powers that B

Scott Walker - Bish Bosch
"No more dragging this wormy anus
’Round on shag piles from Persia to Thrace
I’ve severed my reeking gonads
Fed them to your shrunken face" and
"Janus head
It’s said will give good door
IX, IX, V, IX, I, IX, I
For a Roman
Who’s proof that Greeks fucked bears
V, V, IX, VII, V, IV, I" - SDSS1416+13B (Zercon, A Flagpole Sitter)


kudos for Scott Walker reference.

  1. Hail to the thief - Radiohead

“Where I end and you begin”

“Just 'cause you feel it
Doesn’t mean it’s there”

“We are accidents waiting
Waiting to happen”

And I learnt what Myxomatosis was because of this song:
Similar thing with “Scatterbrain” and “Sail to the Moon”

  1. The Killers - Hot Fuss
    Mr. Brightside
    Smile Like You Mean It
    Somebody Told Me
    All These Things That I’ve Done
    Andy, You’re a Star
    On Top
    Change Your Mind
    Believe Me Natalie

  2. The Infamous, Mobb Deep
    Shook Ones, Pt II
    "Ain’t no such thing has half way crooks"
    Survival of the Fittest

You left out the amazing following lyric from the of Montreal song!!!

“And let your brother suck him, but then beat him
So he could prove he wasn’t… quuueeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrr!!!”

Somehow I always find myself talking about PJ Harvey on the forums but I do think the lyrics from the title track of Rid of Me are super iconic, super quotable, and super representative of the overall sound.

Yeah you’re not rid of me
Yeah you’re not rid of me
I’ll make you lick my injuries
I’m gonna twist your head off, see
Till you say don’t you wish you never never met her
Don’t you don’t you wish you never never met her
Don’t you don’t you wish you never never met her
Don’t you don’t you wish you never never met her

(voice in the background screams “LICK MY LEGS! I’M ON FIRE! LICK MY LEGS! OF DESIRE!”)

I tried one of her albums a while ago, wasn’t really convinced (it was To Bring you my Love, I guess) but the lyrics in rid of me are great. Going to check it out.
