1. David Cook - David Cook_II
Emotional and heart aching lyrics fueled by love and loss, Cooks songwriting has evolved from great into even greater. Grandiose choruses and heart wrenching verses the lyrics remain memorable while keeping their depth.
Ariel Maria's rating:

Often claimed to be ridden with too much teen angst, they have easily outgrown that "type" by evolving their lyrics into something that is both different but still very much Linkin Park. Rhymes, emotion, and anger couple beautifully with guilt and sorrow making these songs easily relatable and ones that will always be remembered.
