    I mean, how can you ask for more from an album title?

    Also one of my faves. The Floyd followed that one with a live album and another great name: Delicate Sound of Thunder.

    Others (with apologies if they have been mentioned):

    The Doobie Brothers: What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits
    Genesis: Selling England Pound By Pound
    System of a Down: Steal This Album
    Talking Heads: More Songs About Buildings And Food
    Don Henley: Building The Perfect Beast
    Weird Al Yankovic: Dare To Be Stupid

    Wasn't it 'Selling England by the Pound'?

    You're probably right. My college roommate had it; haven't listened to it since.

    Either way, good title.

    Shut your mouth!!! :D

    How could I forget the Damn Yankees' self-titled song off their self-titled album? I wore that puppy out during my senior year of HS.

    My pick would have to be Lifetimes' "Hello, Bastards" album. Love it.

    Titles from my CD collection (that haven't been mentioned yet):

    Night in the Ruts-Aerosmith (Right in the Nuts with a couple letters switched)
    Dysfunctional-Dokken (If you knew this band at all, you'd know the title was appropriate)
    Appetite for Destruction-GNR
    Ride the Lightning-Metallica
    Lullabies to Paralyze-Queens of the Stone Age
    Metal Health-Quiet Riot

    And my favorite album title that never was:
    For their most recent studio album (eventually called "Splinter"), The Offspring wanted to use the title "Chinese Democracy: You Snooze, You Lose" to take a dig at Axl Rose and his long-delayed GNR album which is still slated to be "Chinese Democracy."

    Damn, you're right. I had that album and I seriously don't even remember that. They should have used a bigger font on the cover. ;D
