Think about it in Death Metal, Black Metal Grindcore, etc. Do you honestly understand all the words the first time you hear a new song. Of course not, it takes a couple listens. But the music is what draws you in.
I also listen to a lot of instrumental music as well. Lyrics can't and don't offend me. Shitty music does.
