WHEN THE PAWN Hits the Conflicts He Thinks like a King
What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight
And He'll Win the Whole Thing 'Fore He Enters the Ring
There's No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might
So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand
And Remember That Depth Is the Greatest of Heights
And If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where to Land
And If You Fall It Won't Matter, Cuz You'll Know That You're Right

Dead Kennedys had some great ones, including "Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables," "Frankenchrist" and "Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death"

Primus's "The Brown Album" usually makes me chuckle

Nomeansno also has some good ones: "Dance of the Headless Bourgeoisie," "The Worldhood of the World (as such)," "Live + Cuddly"

And I think any discussion of album titles would be incomplete without mention of Pigface's "Eat Shit You Fucking Redneck"

I haven't ever heard the record but "Unfuckwithable" by Harriet The Spy gives me a chuckle.

Not so much with titles, but the band Dillinger 4 has the best song titles ever.

"Portrait of the Artist as a Fucking Asshole"
"Doublewhiskeycokenoice" etc...

Wasn't there another band that had that album title before them?

EDIT: Ok, I looked it up. I was thinking of Steal this Record by the Suicide Machines which came out a year earlier than SOAD.

And there is some rapper(s) with the name Coup that had the title Steal This Album before that.

And before that, there was a compiliation with the STA title.

:up: I was going to post this one if nobody else had.

You have to admire the balls on the Replacements for this one:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/bf/Replacements-LetItBe.jpg

When Big Black released a couple of their EPs on CD, Steve Albini was so convinced that the CD format wouldn't survive that he named the release "The Rich Man's Eight-Track Tape."

I also like Yes's 90125, which was both the title of the album and its number in the Atlantic Records catalog.

Minus The Bear used to have pretty killer album titles: Highly Refined Pirates and They Make Beer Commercials Like This, for example. But I'm partial to the subtle hilarity of Menos El Oso.

Other awesome/hilarious titles:
David Cross - Shut Up, You Fucking Baby!
Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Love Bad News
Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
NOFX - 45 or 46 Songs That Weren't Good Enough To Go On Our Other Records, Punk In Drublic
The Aquabats - The Return Of The Aquabats (awesome because it was their first album)
Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabies

10-24-07, 09:49 AM
Seriously, my favorites are:

1. "When the Pawn hits the conflicts....." - Fiona Apple (the actual title runs 90 words of course. Call it pretentious, but its the first title that popped to mind when i saw this thread).

2. "Lets Go Bang" - Jennifer Love Hewitt - This was Jennifer Love's debut CD, I think. I actually have this. The font is in such a way that you will read it as "Lets go bang Jennifer love Hewitt" which I think is freakin' hilarious.

The Strokes: Is this It
Weezer: Pinkerton
Daft Punk: Discovery (as this was part of my introduction to electronic music, and is one of my favorite albums I can't think of a more fitting album title)

Just a few ideas.
