Abstract

Language has an important role to create literary works. Literary works express a series of happening of human life, such as their social problems, struggles of life and conflicts. There are several forms of literary works which have beautiful and graceful characteristics. The form of song resembles to the poetry, but it still has a distance to go. The word of song could be more pleasing when the letter is set to the music. In addition, by understanding the lyrics of the songs, people may enjoy the music. This study was aimed to find out the types of bad languages found in “Superman Is Dead” album entitled “The Hangover Decade”. This study used descriptive research design. Besides, the objective approach was also used to describe the literary product as a self-sufficient object: which was analyzed and judged without necessarily studying the author’s life. In this thesis, the object of the study was three songs of “The Hangover Decade” album. The results of data analysis show that the bad languages found in “Superman Is Dead” songs are: swearing (twice), slang (twelve times), jargon (twice), and filler and small words (twenty one times) and the most dominant bad language is filler and small words
