Slideshow: Creepy Classic Rock Lyrics

In honor of Steely Dan's show at the Verizon Wireless Theater tonight - it's sold-out, but there should be plenty of sketchy-looking dudes hanging around just waiting to sell you a ticket - Rocks Off decided to put together a list of some of classic rock's more unsettling lyrics, sometimes taken out of context, sometimes not. Of course we had to lead off with the Dan's immortal ickfest "Hey Nineteen" ("Sweet thing from Boston, so young and willing"); see what else made us cringe here.

Also, this is just begging for a sequel, so leave your suggestions in the comments. - Chris Gray
