I always liked:

Both by Van Halen. You could throw in "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" as well. :)

I like Public Enemy's "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back". VERY boastful.

George Best - The Wedding Present. Good sleeve too.

Probably, he can't remember.

12-08-2004, 16:09:30
i'd probably go for 'never mind the bollocks, here's the sex pistols'

Aren't bollocks "balls"?
Why should we never mind them?
That one always confused me.

Pink Floyd has some weird ones...Umaguma or whatever.

Face it there are a lot of good album titles, nicely clever and such, but it's meager for great.

Bollocks has many different meanings, depending on context. In that instance it could be interpreted to mean "Never mind all the other crap, here's the Sex Pistols".
Or perhaps the album title is trying to say "Never mind the crazy shit you've read about us, here's our music - judge us for yourselves".

Strangeways Here We Come - The Smiths

I've always thought "Soft Parade" was kind of a neat album name.

"Necrotism - descanting the insalubrious" by Carcass always did it for me.

That or "The Goat Lorde Cometh" by Unholy

Ghidra beat me to it. Bastard.
