4. Doesn't every band/lead singer say
"Are you ready to rock?"

8. Weirdest lines from a band
"Someone's always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing corporation names"

From Starship that changed their name twice.

7. I must agree with those who said "baby" or "oh baby"
Absolutely overused.

9. For a live concert...
"We have a new album out". "It's called..."

For a recording... anythingg with "girls" in the lyrics.

11. rhyming cliches...
The worst rock rhyme is using 'school' with 'rule' or 'fool'...

A true hallmark of very bad songwriting...

12. How about "I love you so" and "I'll never let you go?"
If I had a buck for every '50s record with that couplet....

17. LOL...Why the 50s?
you can find cliches on any 'idol' series...or even an 'indy' band on the current 'OC' box set...

Maybe...'Can You Rock'...does seem so bad after all

13. At a concert: "Hey (insert name of city here)" or
"All right (insert name of city here)" repeated ad nauseum throughout the concert. When I used to go to a lot of shows, I would keep count of how many times the band gave a shout-out to the city they were in. I called it my "pandering count," and it often got pretty high.
