It's horses for courses with me. If I want great lyrics I listen to Rick Springfield or old Queensryche, or Steve Walsh stuff.
I don't expect deep world changing lyrics from the standard AOR/Melodic Rock bands. If you listen to most revered classic bands like Led Zep, Deep Purple etc they had plenty of cheese going on. People are accepting of it because they probably grew up with it. I was listening to Judas Priest's Ram It Down album today and it's choc full of the cheesiest lyrics going but it doesn't spoil it for me cos it's nostalgic.

The only lyrics that really bug me are really lazy rhyming lyrics.
There's a song on Chris Ousey's solo album called Motivation which is a good (bad) example. It uses Nation, Sensation, Creation, and about every other word ending in 'tion' in it. That's the kind of rhyming you learn age 7 at primary school.
