Any of the bands in which Howard Devoto sang. Devoto defers only to Shakespeare and Bowie in his spectacularly evocative command of the English language.

Beast Box by Luxuria is probably the single greatest album few have ever heard of.

And it would take down Trout Mask Replica in the first round, with a knockout blow to the jaw.
I'm going to guess that you don't care for the Fall.

For someone who has a Lit. degree, I'm weirdly oblivious to the words of songs, apart from their rhythmic value. Right now I'm listening to the Ultramagnetic MCs, from the glory days of NYC hiphop, with real samples! Huh, Kool Keith went on to have a long career, rapping mostly about sex...but I don't listen to the words! "Give the Drummer Some" includes a James Brown sample (guess from which song) that I'd take as my mantra, if I were into that sort of thing.

Sorry, Shaver, the above was way too un-Yankee for me. I still like the Fall's barely coherent clatter, plus Mark E. Smith's gibberish, in small doses.
