    Laying musical content aside, (not that you want to do that too often), what do you think are the greatest album and song titles of all time?

    Never been a big REO fan, but I think "You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can't Tuna Fish" has got to be pretty high on the list. It's the reason I can't tuna, er, tune my bass without giggling.

    As far as songs, I'd have to go with Pink Floyd's "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict."
  2. Umphrey's McGees' first album is hilariously titled "Greatest Hits Vol. III"

    I always liked the title of the Rush album "Grace Under Pressure"; It fits the music perfectly.

    The Gates Of Delirium takes the cake song-title wise. Just Awesome.

    I always like the self-depreciating nature of Dream Theater's "Greatest Hit and 14 other pretty cool songs" and Primus' "They cant all be zingers".
  4. Ween-12 Golden Country Greats ( 10 songs on the CD)

    Joe Walsh's "The Smoker You Drink The Player You Get" has always been one of my all time favorite album titles.

    The Talking Heads "More Songs about Buildings and Food" is another good one.

    Meaty Beaty Big And Bouncy - The Who

    My Girl Bill by Jim Stafford gets my vote for best song title.

  13. Dillinger Four has a ton of great song titles. I can't put all of them in here due to language but:

    - Get Your Study Hall Outta My Recess
    - Suckers, Intl. Has Gone Public
    - Supermodels Don't Drink Colt .45
    - Mosh for Jesus
    - A Floater Left with Pleasure in the Executive Washroom
    - Was Born on a Pirate Ship' (Hold Your Tongue)
    - File Under 'Adult Urban Contemporary'
    - All Rise for the Rational Anthem
    - Ode to the North American Snake Oil Distributor
    - Clown Cars on Cinder Blocks

    That's just the tip of the iceberg.

    And of course...

    D4=Putting the "F" back in "Art".

    Along the same vein, the new Lawrence Arms EP is called "Buttsweat and Tears", which quite frankly is so juvenile and stupid that I can't help but love it.

    I couldn't name a Blink 182 song if you put a gun to my head, but I always thought this album title was pretty funny - "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket".
  20. Physical Grafitti......Led Zeppelin of course!
