Name an album where the title is the worst song on it

I'm listening to David Gray's "White Ladder" currently. It's an outstanding collection of songs, but imo, the title track is the weakest one on the album.

Was wondering if anyone else could think of albums that were titled with the weakest song on it?

Re: Name an album where the title is the worst song on it

It's close, though; I've never been a fan of "Roll The Bones", but "Heresy" is a less-interesting song to me. I was going to suggest maybe A Farewell To Kings as an alternative, but I'd have to put "Madrigal" behind "A Farewell To Kings".

How about Van Halen's 1984?

THE worst? That's tough. I can think of a lot where the title track is one of the worst, but being the worst is harder.

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth
is the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

Heresy is one of my favorite songs on that album. Rush does not do funky very well. It just sounds silly.

So far, he's not - that was a horrid title song.

The Dickies - Stukas Over Disneyland

A very strong album, and the title track isn't bad, it's just kind of bland. Originally released as an 8-song EP, then expanded to 11 songs on re-release, and it's still my least favorite song on the record. I'd imagine the band agrees, as that and Out of Sight Out of Mind are the only two songs I've never heard them play live. At least 6 out of the 11 songs are "regulars" in their live set to this day.

Not a fan of the song at all. The stupid rap in the song is just horrible.
When I saw them for the albums tour, lots of people next to use were not fans.

Kings was my first thought as well, then I remembered Madrigal. Blech. One of the few Rush songs I actually skip when playing whole albums/CD's.

As for Roll The Bones, there is also Neurotica in addition to Heresy.

Ooh, good call. Despite that being the "overture" to the piece, containing the four themes, Pete was smart enough to open the album with The Real Me.

(edit...yes, technically it opens with I Am The Sea, but that's little more than an intro to The Real Me)

Some might disagree, but I always felt "Going For The One" was the weakest track on that phenomenal YES album in 1977.

I think it's a fitting preamble to the grandeur of Jump.

I might go with Blondie - Eat to the Beat.

It's not terrible, but I think it may be the weakest track on a fantastic album.
