A Dozen Lousy Album Titles

4 March 2009

Naming an album is an art unto itself. Some artists have a knack for the great handle (witness Bob Dylan, Funkadelic, and Fela Kuti, to name but three) while others struggle with the proper balance of profundity and absurdity. Here are a dozen album titles so historically bad that they set the mind reeling…

George Clinton | Hey Man, Smell My Finger
George Clinton | Hey Man… Smell My Finger – Ummmm…. no thank you Mr. Clinton.

Peaches | Fatherfucker
Peaches | Fatherfucker – Classy gal, that Peaches. Although I must admit that she looks pretty hot in a beard…

REO Speedwagon | You Can Tune A Piano, But You Can't Tuna Fish
REO Speedwagon | You Can Tune A Piano, But You Can’t Tuna Fish – And just in case you didn’t get the horrid pun, the cover features a fish deep-throating a tuning fork…

Spoon | Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Spoon | Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga – Spoon is huge with the 2-and-under crowd…

Terence Trent D'Arby | Terence Trent D'Arby Is Neither Fish Nor Flesh
Terence Trent D’Arby | Terence Trent D’Arby Is Neither Fish Nor Flesh – Terence Trent D’Arby is however, a pompous ass…

Fiona Apple | When The Pawn Hits...
Fiona Apple | 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’ll Know Where To Land And If You Fall It Won’t Matter, Cuz You Know That You’re Right – Fiona needs an army of patient editors, and a satchel of strong medication…

Insane Clown Posse | Jugganauts: The Best Of
Insane Clown Posse | Jugganauts: The Best Of The Insane Clown Posse – Unless someone has recently switched up the meaning of the word ‘best’ – or this CD contains 70 minutes of silence – I’m afraid we’ve got some issues here.

Limp Bizkit | Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavored Water
Limp Bizkit | Chocolate Starfish & The Hot Dog Flavored Water – Fred Durst is such a laughable dick that sometimes I miss the big lug. Cracked.com called this “the Sgt. Pepper of horrible album titles” and who am I to argue with an assessment like that?

King Crimson | Lark's Tongues In Aspic
King Crimson | Larks’ Tongues In Aspic – Mmmmm… prog rock. Let the taste of it roll around your mouth for a minute. As my grandmother used to say, nothing goes better with Larks’ Tongues In Aspic than a nice tall glass of hot dog flavored water…

Blink 182 | Enema Of The State
Blink 182 | Enema Of The State – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… enema.

Butthole Surfers | Electric Larryland
Butthole Surfers | Electric Larryland – I know, I know… expecting anything more from a band called the Butthole Surfers is akin to waiting for a monkey to type up Hamlet. But holy hell, will you noise-spewing hillbillies please leave Jimi Hendrix out of it?

Yes | Tormato
Yes | Tormato – What do you get when you cross a tornado with a tomato? That’s right, crappy prog rock that will put you to sleep…
