Clawfinger, one of the first and most successfull rapmetal bands were extremely popular in the early 90´s, most of all for their amazing society-critical lyrics

after two very successfull albums they started mixing techno into their music, which already was a mixture of rap and metal

for me they are one of the only bands in this musical direction that i can enjoy, and their lyrics are the best i have ever read, here are the lyrics for their No.1 hit "Nigger" and their song "I Close My Eyes" enjoy

Goddamn my man you see I can't understand
Why you wanna say Nigger to your brother man
Taking black pride then you call yourself a Nigger
Don't bring yourself down cos it just don't figure
Take a look at yourself and your history
You don't look like a goddamn Nigger to me
It's a negative world and the white man made it
Gave you a name to dominate and trade it
Making blood money of his very own race man
And all of this because the colour of your face man
Nigger Nigger Nigger Nigger
Placed and educated in a neighbourhood of crime
Taught from the beginning that you weren't worth time
Liquorstore and gunstore next to one another
With only one purpose so you all kill each other
Leaving one less problem to worry about
That's the way they do it this is how it turns out
And justice for all with the American goverment
I wanna know where all the goddamn money went
We didn't see it and it didn't do no good
I guess you couldn't give a fuck about a black neighbourhood
Nigger Nigger Nigger Nigger Nigger
You're the real Niggers,
You're the real Niggers,
You're the real Niggers
There's always gonna be fanatical minorities
The ku klux klan and fucked up authorities
Conservative cunts and religious preachers
I don't care cos they ain't our teachers
Living a life they say is free from sin
Then they judge another person by the colour of their skin
I feel ashamed of myself I'm a white human being
Surrounded by suckers to afraid to be seeing
There ain't such a thing called superior race
And there ain't nothing special 'bout colour of your face
You've got a one way ticket to a dead end street
The pressure is on so feel the heat
Media pollution is a very bad solution
Hypocriticat hype is your only contribution
So leave us alone and give your brothers some space
Cos you're a lousy contribution to the human race
Nigger Nigger ...



I close my eyes and hope that this is just another dream
Reality can't really be as bad as it seems
I hope for something better but I'm waiting for the worst
And when I open up my eyes I see the bubble burst
All my dreams are broken as the world is torn apart
Was it really meant to be this way right from the start
If this is all we live for then I wish that I was dead
Just so I could stop these thoughts from going through my head
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes again and wish that everything was fine
Even though I know that I'm just wasting precious time
I'm loosing my direction life is driving me insane
The more things keep on changing the more they stay the same
So please somebody catch me before I hit the ground
I just can't understand what makes this crazy world go round
The more I look around me the less I seem to know
If this is all there is then I don't know where I can go
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes and wish that I could turn back time
I close my eyes and wish that I could press rewind
I close my eyes and wish that I could change my mind
I close my eyes and wish that everything was fine
I close my eyes one final time to make my vision clear
The more I try the more my vision seem to dissappear
The world keeps turning around as I turn my inside out
I'm doing all I can to understand what life's about
But everywhere I seem to look the answer isn't there
Nobody's asking questions cos' nobody seems to care
There has to be some sort of meaning and a reason to exist
If this is all there is there must be something that I missed
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes
I close my eyes and wish that I could turn back time
I close my eyes and wish that I could press rewind
I close my eyes and wish that I could change my mind
I close my eyes and wish that everything was fine

Admittedly Clawfinger do have some good lyrics but come on, a lot of actual RAP bands have much better rhymes. Still, my favorite Clawfinger song is by far Two Sides.

I really like this band, intelligent lyrics, good groove.

And I don't if they were so 'extremely popular', even if their first album (Deaf Dumb Blind) is ther best.
But I prefer them to RATM.
