    haha, yeah i always liked that title too.

    my mom told me she hates fishbone because she saw them at a houseparty in the 80s and they threw plastic grapes into the audience and they hit her in the head. the grapes, that is.

    Another Green World
    Yesterday was dramatic - today is OK
    Oddessey & Oracle
    Slanted & Enchanted
    God Bless The Red Krayola And All Who Sail With It
    Choirs Of The Eye
    Breaking Atoms
    The Bed is in the Ocean

  • License To Ill
    We're The Meatmen And You Still Suck

    All of the Funkadelic albums:

    Maggot Brain
    Hardcore Jollies
    Cosmic Slop
    Tales of Kidd Funkadelic
    Electric Splanking of War Babies
    and on and on..

  • Pogues - Rum, Sodomy & The Lash

    I could name these all day:

    Free Your Mind...and Your Ass Will Follow (OG gatefold honeebaybee, please)

    Osmium (named for the, uh, heaviest metal)

    Get It While You Can (proved prophetic)

    A Ass Pocket of Whiskey

    Lick My Decals Off, Baby

    Safe As Milk

    Funk Pump

    American Thighs


    Pants Across America


    E.R. Sanctified Jones

    ...and the first CD cover I designed (for an independent hip-hop group):

    Do Black People Like Hip-Hop?

  • Never actually heard the record, but I've always loved the title of Moe Bandy's "I Just Started Hatin' Cheatin' Songs Today."

  • p_gunnp_gunn 2,284 Posts
    redd foxx- you gotta wash your ass
    the first 3 PE albums
    critical beatdown
    you can't pray a lie- laughing hyenas
    the first two Eno records
    and every ZZ Top and Swamp Dogg record...

    and "revolution of the mind" by JB is the best title/cover combo ever... sums up that era so well...

    i tend not to like silly pun album titles, especially ones that play on the titles of other records... shit stopped being funny when i turned 16...

    any album that just says "Presenting..." is great too...

  • progbeatzprogbeatz 451 Posts
    "For Girls Who Go Plump in the Night" Caravan

    "If I Could Do It Again I'd Do It All Over You" Caravan

    "Got any Gum?" Joe Walsh

  • The album I'm thinking of is by Celia Cruz and another salsa icon whose name escapes me, and the title is something outlandish like Only They Could Make An Album Like This. Just came to mind today and brought a grin to my face.

  • Animal Collective - "Sung Tongs".... this album blazes.

  • that joe walsh song and quote are actually a Tom Waits song and quote. its a cover.

    the waits version is fresh.


  • also, my votes are...

    i was young and needed the money

    adventures in foam

    bitches and money 2000 (the AMG comeback album)

    music to driveby

    People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm

    de la soul is dead

    Terminator X & the Valley of the Jeep Beets

    munchies for your bass

    ...and so on, and so forth.


  • Bulletproof Wallets

    Along that same line, though not nearly as good of a record:

    RZA's Digital Bullets

    A few more:

    Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By (an album title that's possibly better than the music)

    Bombay the Hard Way, Vol. 2: Electric Vindaloo

    Deck Safari (a mix album Air released right after their Moon Safari album)

    Stray Blues (a Beck B-side collection)

    And a few classics:

    Kick Out the Jams

    Music for Airports

    Rubber Soul
