If you dig Avril Lavigne, P!nk, Lenny Kravitz and the Chili Peppers then youll want to see what they have to say about songwriting and makin music. Check out these quotes from some of your fave pop-rock acts.

Songwriting doesn't always come easy, that's why there are a ton of singers out there who don't write their own lyrics. They either have people write songs for them or they find a song that grabs 'em and hope they can get the songwriters' permission to use it. Here are a few quotes from some of your fave pop-rock acts on songwriting and makin' music.

1 "You can't be creative when you're completely happy."
~ P!nk

1 "I sit down with a guitar player and if there's a situation I feel strongly about, or a guy that I've been thinking about or if I'm mad at a guy, it comes out."
~ Avril Lavigne, on the inspiration behind her songs.

1 "When we get together to rehearse, we could write music together all day long - GOOD music."
~ Anthony Kiedis, Red Hot Chili Peppers.

1 "It's unfashionable to admit, but playing music makes us happy and makes us smile."
~ Hoobastank's Chris Hesse.

1 "I didn't think anything we did was spectacular. I remember we thought, 'Let's just write some scary music.'"
~ Ozzy Osbourne, on the old days with his band Black Sabbath.

1 "I usually like to make really dramatic songs [that are] dynamic from part to part - a lot of jumping from really quiet to really loud."
~ MC Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park.

1 "We've always just gotten up there and played. We don't have any dancers, we don't have all that stuff going on, we just get up there and play."
~ Lenny Kravitz, on performing live.
