Tuesday Topics - Nine (Most Unusual) Album Titles I Can Think Of



Achtung Baby by U2

OU812 by Van Halen

Dizzy Up the Girl by The Goo Goo Dolls

Enema of the State by Blink 182

Hot Sauce Committee Part Two by the Beastie Boys

Goats Head Soup by The Rolling Stones

Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water by Limp Bizkit

Here Come the Runts by AWOLNATION

The Boy Bands Have Won, and All the Copyists and the Tribute Bands and the TV Talent Show Producers Have Won, If We Allow Our Culture to Be Shaped by Mimicry, Whether from Lack of Ideas or from Exaggerated Respect. You Should Never Try to Freeze Culture. What You Can Do Is Recycle That Culture. Take Your Older Brother's Hand-Me-Down Jacket and Re-Style It, Re-Fashion It to the Point Where It Becomes Your Own. But Don't Just Regurgitate Creative History, or Hold Art and Music and Literature as Fixed, Untouchable and Kept Under Glass. The People Who Try to 'Guard' Any Particular Form of Music Are, Like the Copyists and Manufactured Bands, Doing It the Worst Disservice, Because the Only Thing That You Can Do to Music That Will Damage It Is Not Change It, Not Make It Your Own. Because Then It Dies, Then It's Over, Then It's Done, and the Boy Bands Have Won by Chumbawamba


What's one of the most unusual album titles that you've heard of?



Linking up with Jenn:




Congratulations to my alma mater, Marshall University, for winning the C-USA Championship, for the exciting upset of a #4 seeded team, and for going further this season than many thought was possible.

    1. it took me a little while to remember the details about it. I had heard it once before while playing trivia but could not for the life of my remember who the band was. Crazy, isn't it?

  3. LOL, that Chumbawumba title is crazy!

    Not sure if it's unusual, but I always liked the Sandi Thom album title "Smile... it confuses people". "Black Holes and Revelations" by Muse is interesting (and actually "Plug-In baby" by them could have been included in the song titles list). Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player by Elton John. Suck It and See by The Arctic Monkeys.
