Best songwriters of our generation?

Here's my rough list, in no particular order...

Kurt Cobain
Elliott Smith
Thom Yorke, et al.
Beck

Shoot my picks down and add new ones.

    Josh Homme
    Tom Morello (Does he count? He doesn't write lyrics, but his guitar skills made Rage Against the Machine the groundbreaking band that they were)
    Eddie Vedder
    Issac Brock (Modest Mouse)
    Rivers Cuomo
    Jack White
    Billy Corgan

  2. Wesley Willis, RIP...

    All the greats die young.

  3. But honestly, I don't really like the songwriters from our generation, besides a handful of the aforementioned.
