I also listen to a lot of instrumental music as well. Lyrics can't and don't offend me. Shitty music does.
And with a lot of those bands, you can't understand the words at all unless you actually have the lyrics in front of you and follow along with them. I too could give a fuck less what the lyrics are as long as the musics good. Same with the main topic. I love As I Lay Dying just as much as Dimmu Borgir.
