    Just came across the following name from a spanish band (El Ultimo de La Fila): Cuando la pobreza entra por la puerta, el amor salta por la ventana. or "When poverty comes in throught he door, love goes out the window." Brilliant.

    Other great titles:

    Clutching at Straws (Marillion)
    Bridge Over Troubled Water (Simon & Garfunkel)
    Rubber Soul (Beatles)

    There are more, but I'll stop there.

    Which album titles do you like?

  7. "Hairway to Steven," by the Butthole Surfers. (To find this amusing, I guess you have to be old enough to have had your ears bludgeoned ad infinitum by multiple renditions of "Stairway to Heaven," from the classic to the competent to the inept.)
     
  8. "cactuses come in flocks" - Melt-banana
    "homogenic" - Bjork (she actually thought it was a real word...must've been thinking of homophobic)

    "Irony is a Dead Scene" by The Dillinger Escape Plan and Mike Patton
    "Jar of Flies" by Alice in Chains

    Those are the only good ones I can think of at the moment that haven't been mentioned already.

    addylewis, maybe Bjork was thinking of something more along the lines of homogenous.

    "The Royal Scam" - Steely Dan. The title is only cool if you've seen the album's artwork.
